View Full Version : color sampling a rendered image?

05 May 2007, 09:29 AM
does anyone out there know if it's possible to sample colors directly from a rendered image in Maya?

Yep, there is an eyedropper tool in the Color Chooser window that opens when you click on a color swatch. The eyedropper can sample any pixel from Maya's interface on your monitor including the viewport and other color swatches.
If you want to copy colors between materials open multiple material tabs from the Attribute Editor by using the Copy Tab button at the bottom of it.
