Okay...once again I'm gonna ask a pretty simple question that I can't even find the answer to.

Can someone explain to me in lamen's terms what Envelopes are? I've looked in the handbooks that came with the program but I still can't figure it out. :S

Envelopes are what you used to animate object attributes. If you look in the surface editor, you'll see the E button next to all the surface attributes. Using color as an example, clicking on E takes you into the graph editor (and all envelopes will take you there) will allow you to change the value of your color over time allowing you to change an ojbects color during the course of an animation.
