Default Animating Light

I've been able to animate the position of a spotlight in scene. But I want to be able to make the light fade out at a specific time.

I've tried setting keys and changing the settings but all I end up doing is turning off the light for the entire animation.

How can I make the light fade out? Is there a way to make the light change colors at a specified time as well?

I also want one light to fade out and another fade up. How can I properly amimate these parameters?

Thanks.

you can set keys on pretty much anything - right click in your attribute editor and "set key"- the box will turn pink and away you go ( at least i think so, I dont have maya open rightnow)

yes, right click on the attribute that you want to key, not just anyware on the attribute editer. once you have done that pick setKey. that will set a key for that attribute on the frame your at on the time slider.
