Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting wireframe line width and color, part of Maya: Workflow Tips.
…By default in Maya, all objects have the same wire frame color to begin with.…And this can be problematic.…If you've got a really heavy scene with lots…of objects and you're trying to navigate using a wire…frame display mode, then if they're all the color it…can be very difficult to find what you're looking for.…I'm going to switch to wire frame mode so we can see the difference here.…I'm going to click here.…Or you can press the 4 key to enter wireframe mode.…So as you can see,…these 2 objects both had the same…wireframe color, which is the default dark blue.…To change the wireframe color, you'll select an object or…objects, and go into the display menu and choose wireframe color.…
From here you have a choice of all these options, these colors…are derived from the user defined colors in the Colors Settings Window.…And because of that, these colors will…change depending upon the current user's preferences.…So this is a bit problematic in a way,…we'll see a workaround for this in the next movie.…But the point I want to make here is that, if you choose let's say this cyan color…
