Is there a way to change the color of keyframes on the timeline? For example, I would like all the keyframes associated with the Left Leg to be Blue and the Right Leg to be Green.

There is a way to change the colors of all keyframes. If you go into the user preferences and go to Themes > Dope Sheet then you can change the colors of selected and unselected keyframes.

I could be wrong, but after using Blender for two or three years I have not seen a way to change keyframe colors for individual bones. Would be a nice feature have for sure.

  • $\begingroup$ I like the idea too, but in thinking about this more, I wonder if the issue with this suggestion is that, unlike so many other elements in the scene, such as items in the Outliner, which have an independent location in the list, or objects in the 3D view, which have a discrete position in space, different keyframes often find themselves directly on top of each other on a given time position in the timeline, meaning you'd have no way to see them independently. So, depending on the situation, the color differences between various keyframes would often be undetectable. $\endgroup$ – R-800 Jun 11 '20 at 3:13
