Changing Colours/attributes of Object Nodes

Recommended Posts



I'm hoping for an easy fix I've missed in my googling. 


I want to be able to change the colour/ attributes of a Marionette / object node from the object info panel or in such a way that it is easy/ quick to customise. 


Thank you for any help in advance. 


Kind regards, 


Marionette - 4 Square.vwx

Can you provide a better description of what you want?  I don't think I am understanding you.


You have a marionette object that has four colored squares.  You want to be able to change each of them independently from the OIP?

HI Pat, 


Thanks for any help you are able to offer! 


Yes - is this possible? Possibly a few predefined colours if that's easier? 


It's what I though would be a 'simple' version of a few object nodes I'm hoping to make to save time on a lot of repetitive tasks.

you could set a class by a node and control the color by class...?

One trick to this is that you actually have to edit the Popup Node to change the text displayed for the different options. I have not looked at it carefully enough to know what you have to do if you want more than three options.


Good luck.
