I'm trying to apply a different silhouette color to each element of my figure.

I pulled a nude jams out of the library and added conforming shirt, pants, shoes.

I want James to be a brown silhouette, pants colored blue silhouette, shirt green silhouette, shoes black silhouette

When I try and use the silhouette styles all the elements take on the same silhouette color. Any ideas on how to apply a different silhouette color to each element of my figure? Any ideas?

Thanks everyone :)

One solution: render the items separately and composite them together in a paint program - trivial to adjust color that way too, as you adjust each layer before compositing them together...

set 'em all to white (against black background) render as uncompressed tiff. as per pjz, in photoshop, click on each white body shape and give it a new colour.

If I understand you correctly, you want to be able to pose and render but have all the items appear to be colored solid, no reaction to light, right?

Select each material zone where you want this to happen, turn off the Diffuse_Value and Specular_Value, then turn on the Ambient_Value and set the Ambient_Color you want. No need for post work. Don' forget that you can save the character like this and get him back any time you want.

In this screen shot, I'm showing the shirt material.

Renderosity forum reply notifications have been wonky in the past. I'm testing the waters to see if it's working now. If you ask me something and I don't come back, it probably isn't. (Updated January 17, 2017)
