 We ramp up the red channel of the LED, and when it's halfway through (when ''​i = 500''​),​ the green channel begins ramping up. At ''​i = 1000'',​ the red channel is fully on, green is halfway to full on, and blue is just starting. They start and stop the process approximately half a second offset from each other, and once they'​re all at full brightness, the process reverses to bring them back down to off. We ramp up the red channel of the LED, and when it's halfway through (when ''​i = 500''​),​ the green channel begins ramping up.
