All of the above, but get the basics right and you avoid lots of issues. Basics: make sure your color box or garage warms up your color reasonably (don't toss cold color into a hot box) and once hot, your rod stays on the hot side long enough. Make sure it's really hot before you stick it up! Hot = at least 1000 for most trans or 1100 for gaffer opaques. Or nevermind the numbers and just judge pickup temps as ok if its just starting to stick to the brick or slump a bit (if it's a long rod)
