Can the Viewport Display Mask color be changed?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


i was wondering if there is a way to not only change the opacity but also the color of the Viewport Display Mask,

since the default color (white in dark mode) is a littlebit distracting. 

Thank You

There is config file for colors (.wb for dark scheme, .bw for light scheme):
c:\Program Files\Side Effects Software\Houdini 13.*.*\houdini\config\3DSceneColors.wb

Copy this file into your %HOME% directory
eg: c:\Users\user\Documents\houdini13.0\config\3DSceneColors.wb

And then look for this row in this file:

ViewMaskOverlayColor:    1.00 1.00 1.00    # view mask overlay

You can change colors there. It will be applied after Houdini restart.
