I want to import obj or x3d files that have a texture encoded as vertex colors. In blender 2.79 my workflow is following the description of Jan in his answer described here: How to display and use Vertex Color from OBJ model. (Basically: Selecting the "material" tab in the properties, adding a new material to the object and checking the box "vertex color paint")
This works nicely for blender 2.79. However, I would like to get this to work in blender 2.8. Though I am able to display my object with vertex colors in the viewer (by simply setting the "object interaction mode" to "vertex paint mode") blender 2.8 won't render my vertex colors.
Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!
