I am wondering if anyone knows if the "parameters" can be animated in Texture Editor gradients. I would like dynamic control of how the parameter keys "shift" over timeframe. Thanks.

Using the gradient in the node editor will allow you complete control. You can expose the keys in your gradient to attach other nodes too allowing you to have not only one dynamic texture, but an unlimited number all contained within the gradient.

I figured the Node editor might be helpful here. I don't have much experience with Nodes but may be able to figure it out after a while. Could you suggest a basic set-up for this with a screen shot perhaps. Much Thanks.

Make two or more gradients, and output colors mix in tools > mixer, with enveloped opacity.
