- In all 2.8+ Blenders there is no wireframe colors in lit view modes, no any wireframe colors for objects like splines, empties, etc. what is wrong. They were not exist in 2.79 BUT!!! I been used groups for assigning different than black wireframe color for objects. Now I have no wire color difference option at all…
- In all 2.8+ Blenders in Material View mode not work In Front (2.79’s X-Ray) and Clipping Region features. I don’t know is it some graphic engine limitation, bug, or those who work on it just forgot about this features, but in 2.79 they been worked in Material View… I need to bring them back in 2.8+.
Widely with pictures
(all pictures from 2.91, but described are true for all 2.8+ versions at the moment of writing)
What's about Wireframe Colors.
I work many years on architectural visualization for game engine. Exterior/interior/area around like yards & roads. My work almost always are based on drawings so comfort using this drawings is important. In Blender 2.79 I been using groups (which have options to set different wire color) to set different color for drawings. In newer Blender I have no more such option and it makes work with drawing as much uncomfortable as it can be…
It would be also good to set wireframe colors in lit modes not just for drawings but for any objects. Color coding in this way in complex scenes “mast have” thing, otherwise it really hard to manage such scenes with hundreds/thousents of objects.
Now Materil View mode
Most of things I described right in images (open images in new tab to see full resolution)
After all a bit about X-Ray viewport feature and why this feature is questionable/can’t replace lack of In Front feature in Material View mode.Why also any other than 1 X-Ray value in scenes I working with makes things impossible to work on.
- I really need wireframe colors in lit view modes to be able to do my work in new Blender after 2.8.(related RCS topic)
- I really can’t do my work (I think lot of people have same issue) without In Front and Clipping Region features in Material View mode. (related RCS topic)
Thanks for reading. I would be glad to see here any reply from developers or discuss things and how they work.
