How to Pick Accurate Colors in Maya

Have you ever wondered how to pick accurate colors in Maya with color management?

Color management shouldn’t make everything more difficult, but you need to understand what’s happening when you work with color. Something as simple as using an eyedropper requires a bit of thought under something like ACES, simply due to input and output transforms and how color management works.

Check out this new tutorial from the Maya Channel that covers how you can use Maya’s eyedropper to pick colors accurately either in the viewport or outside Maya even.

Walking over to the preferences seems a little tedious, but it’s reasonably straightforward once you understand what needs tweaks.
