Controlling color of individual (instanced) objects

-Set Vertex Color node sends data for each object to Attribute node in Cycles

1.  when looping through the object list, a color is assigned to each object (index) using a Color List node

2.  at each index in the loop the data is sent from the Set Vertex Color to the Attribute node in Cycles

stuff i keep forgetting

+= (incement)

ctrl-c = copy script if over menu item

 ctrl-shift-c (hover over an objects property, ie location x window – will copy “location”

When accessing a “custom property” – usually in an Object Attribute Input… write it out [“propName”].
