Maya Color Marker Outliner and Viewport management script


Color Marker is a small Outliner and Viewport management script for Autodesk Maya that will allow you to add different colors in Outliner and the View-port (mesh wireframe, deformers, curves, emitters, joints…) making it way easier to see and arrange stuff if you are dealing with the heavy scene.


If you already have the script and you have a Gumroad account check the product page and the download should be there. Please check also product info and release notes for more info.
With the download, there is also a Help file which shorty goes over every feature in Color Marker.

  • Update – “Select” option should now be significantly faster to select lots of objects as well as it supports multi-selection which means you can select, for example, 2 objects with different colors and it will select all other objects with those 2 colors.
