What good is vertex paint mode?

Post by bill2reg »

I have used vertex paint mode, but when I render the object (Blender render or Cycles render) there is no color on the object. Only the default gray. So what is vertex paint used for? Am I missing something? The colors do show up in vertex paint mode, solid or textured display, but that's the only place I can see them.

you need to enable it in the materials tab, Options panels, Vertex color paint / light:

CoDEmanX,
Thanks for the reply. Now it seems then that this only works when using the Blender internal render, not Cycles. OK. But when I tried it, there was still no color at all when rendered. The cube that I tried didn't even show in gray now.
Nothing at all like there was no cube in the scene.
