Tip: Using ICE to drive the OpenGL vertex color display


Courtesy of Vladimir Jankijevic, here’s ” a really handy way of showing
arbitrary colors on a polygon mesh in the viewport, without having to create
a vertex property.”

  • Create an ICE tree that sets self.Color in a per-point context.
  • In the Material node property editor, set Vertex Color Display Property
    to Color.

    • Yeah, looks like something introduced in 2012. In 2011 SAP, I don’t see Color in the Vertex Color Display Property list. In 2012 it’s there automatically.
