View Full Version : Changing Bone Color In Layout?

02-26-2008, 07:06 AM

Is there any way to change the display color of a bone in Layout? I can't find it anywhere--either in the Properties panel for the bone, or the Scene Editor Options panel.

Please advise.

Never mind, I got it. Just in case anyone else is wondering, the solution is to open the Classic Scene Editor and click the name of the item--a pop-up menu should appear listing the possible display colors. Note: This doesn't seem to work in the new Scene Editor.

The the classic scene editor that's right click by the way.

In the new scene editor just (L) click on the bone icon in the list.

In Schematic View, right click on any item to change the color.

I have a quick question related to this. I'm currently rigging a character; how do you make bones show through when your viewport is set to Textured Shaded Solid? I've seen it done in William's videos before, I've even done it myself, I just can't remember how it's done.

Right next to the Viewport display-type drop down in each Viewport is an arrow. Click and select "Bone X-Ray"
