Responding to old thread which touches on my question: if I am rigging a hi poly mesh even with smooth shading off, and just wireframe and x ray joints on, it can be a little difficult to see position of joint in relation to everything else if the mesh is a mass of dark spaghetti.
Other than just changing mesh layer color
to light gray or similar using "Edit Layer" popup, is there a way to reduce opacity
of mesh (the wire mesh itself, not the faces) and/or other wireframe objects in the view, or have the joint/bone being added show in highlight rather than regular mode. This would all be for the sake of having the joint/bone being added "stand out" above everything else but still be able to see everything else in a faint opacity mode.
I also came across this similar autodesk post although I'm looking for "lighter" not "darker"
Thanks ahead of time!
