background gradient

What I'm wanting to do:

I have a 10 min project...with four camera angles - green sceened - with varying levels of zoom.

For my background I intend to use a photoshop 'cloud' shot I have made. Three of the angles can use the same backgound with various crops done to make the background appropriate. The fourth will be different but matching...

To create a bit of a subtile variety in the background I want to have one colour on the 'clouds' at the start transitioning to a different colour at the end...and perhaps through a third colour in the middle.

So...the backgound will need to be cut into separate events to accomodate the various cropping that needs to be done, yet the transition will need to be smooth over all the events over whole the 10mins.

I had thought I would fade from one to the other, but have found that fades do not cross cuts.

Any suggestions on how this can be done? I thought of varying opacity in the events but can't see how to do that...

I'm using Vegas Pro 11
