Assign colors to polygon vertices


You can manually assign color data to polygon vertices (CPV) using the Apply Color feature. The Apply Color feature provides a color editor to do this.

To assign a color to vertices

  1. Select the vertices and choose Color > Apply Color > .
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Click Replace color to set the color for these vertices.
    • Click either Add color or Subtract color to add or subtract the RGB values of the color you choose here to the current color of the vertices. This is useful for adding or subtracting white, red, green, blue, cyan, yellow, or magenta from a number of differently colored vertices at once.
  3. Click the Color swatch to edit the color using the color editor, or click the Grab color button (eyedropper icon) and then click any pixel on the screen to pick up its color.
  4. Click Apply Color.

    Color per vertex animation will not work for polygonal objects which do not have modeling/construction history. You can quickly create history on a model by selecting the object and then choosing Edit Mesh > Transform Component, but moving nothing.
