By using \color<3-4>{blue}{text}, the text will be blue on slides 3 and 4, and black on other slides. Is it possible to make the text red on slide 1 at the same time?

Note that your example should be either \textcolor<3-4>{blue}{text} or {\color<3-4>{blue}text}. – Martin Scharrer Jul 21 '11 at 13:03

Inner specifications will override outer ones.

I am actually try to use two different colors for this: tex.stackexchange.com/q/23678/2015. Any ideas? – Li Wang Jul 21 '11 at 12:17

How about the following layout on your slide:

\<2> {text2}  % item 2 in standard (black) color
<5> etc.
