Blender's GUI colour scheme.

(Dittohead) #1

How would you change the colour scheme for blender’s GUI?

Is it just RGB values or is it more complicated.

I would alter the cursor a little, but that’s exactly about it.

The rest is fine with me, readable, enough contrast, just okay.

heh, funny I was thinking abut this last night. I’m kinda into GUI design and stuff. I tihnk it would be very handy if the user could set the colors themself. altho I havn’t seen the source code yet, I’m sure this wouldn’t be too much of a hassle.

Ooh, I’m thinking bigger stuff here. An XSI-style skin would be very nice indeed. Coz let’s face it, XSI is the SXI-est 3D app out there at the moment :wink: :stuck_out_tongue:

Anyone who points to Maya will be shot. :o :smiley:

yhea! XSI’s look rocks! the box is nice too.

Ha, posts on the GUI usually result in a balistic arguement. Whats up everyone gone soft? :smiley:

i think xsi may be attractive, but it is the WORST 3d gui i’ve tried yet. just plain horrible.

OMG am I going to agree with Valar King?! Tried both XSI and Maya. I freaking took off with Maya. Can’t say the same for SoftImage (even though I’ve had it for longer). But kinda getting off topic.

I like Blender’s UI the way it is. Changing colors would be ok, but don’t re-arrange the interface or anything.

I wouldn’t want blender’s gui drastically changed. I like it the way it is, and the color scheme is great.

XSI has a nice gui, but to me blender’s gui makes the process alot more faster. I’ve been using blender longer then XSI so that might sway my opinion.

I personally would make the background a little lighter and the buttons a little more saturated in color… at least that’s how I’d play around with it at first. Who knows, it might look awful…

When the source is opened we’ll (someone will) just create a new tab with sliders whose variables are linked to the color values of the different interface elements. It’ll have a Save button, too. You can keep it the way it is. You can make it wacky. And no one but you has to suffer.

HEY all I wanted was to change ‘crap-colored’ interface of blender.
