How to change the colour of the bone in figure window?
« on: March 19, 2016, 10:58:25 pm »

  After modeling the mesh I want to apply the bones to it in figure mode. So I add one bone to the root, assign the mesh to that bone and build the skeleton following the mesh.
   Well, everything goes OK until I start to paint weights so the bones influence different parts of body, colour of the bone to which I imported the mesh repeats and makes it impossible to paint those parts of the mesh.
 Is there any way to change the colour of the bone/s?

You can't change the color of a bone.
There's 4 colors.1 vertex can be influenced by a maximum of 4 bones.There's 4 degrees of separation between 2 bones of the same color.So 2 bones of the same color can't influence the same vertex.As I type
this ,I'm not sure it will be helpful.If it ain't,ask again.
Someone else might have a better explanation.
