Is it possible to get the color of a vertex group that is coloured with dynamic paint? I have a mesh of tree which was created from particle instance and then applied. Then I joined all of that to create a single mesh. Then dynamic paint was used to draw a color on that.

The complex part is that I need to get the color of the vertex group which was named leaf-1.

I proceeded with dynamic paint for coloring the mesh and that is a brilliant tool. Now I need to export the color values of that vertex. I thought the dynamic paint values are stored in the dp_paintmap vertex color. But that values are full of (1.0,1.0,1.0,1.0). I have been searching for this and found a similar question. blender.stackexchange.com/questions/123261/getting-color-values-produced-by-dynamic-paint Please help me. Where is this data stored? dynamic painted mesh assigned vertex group

Thanks to Phillip You need to read this from the evaluated object, see

import bpy

ob = bpy.context.object

depsgraph = bpy.context.evaluated_depsgraph_get()
object_eval = ob.evaluated_get(depsgraph)

#vertex colors are in fact stored per loop-vertex -> MeshLoopColorLayer
if ob.type == 'MESH':
    #how many loops do we have ?
    loops = len(object_eval.data.loops)
    verts = len(object_eval.data.vertices)
    #go through each vertex color layer
    for vcol in object_eval.data.vertex_colors:
        # look into each loop's vertex ? (need to filter out double entries)
        visit = verts * [False]
        colors = {}
        for l in range(loops):
            v = object_eval.data.loops[l].vertex_index
            c = vcol.data[l].color
            print("Vertex {0} has Color {1}".format(v, (vcol.data[l].color[0],vcol.data[l].color[1],vcol.data[l].color[2])))
            if not visit[v]:
                colors[v] = c
                visit[v] = True
        print("Vertex-Colors of Layer:", vcol.name)
#        for v, c in colors.items():
#            print("Vertex {0} has Color {1}".format(v, (c.r, c.g, c.b)))
