# Beamer \color overlay with more than one color

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

``````\textcolor<1>{red}{\color<3-4>{blue}text}
``````

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
