I am trying to set the vertex color of a generated geometry to output it to a .ply file (and not necessarily having them displayed into the viewport). I can set the vertex color to the original mesh, but not to any generated vertices.
I have done a minimal example to show what I mean: If I switch to the original geometry the vertex colors are correctly set (the original cube appears in pink and the .ply file contains the vertex colors). When I switch to the generated cube, the vertex colors are ignored and not exported.
I have followed most of the answers I have found on this StackExchange without success:
- How to output to vertex color
I am on Macos X monterey, with Blender 3.2.0 alpha Silicon version.
Any ideas on how to properly export vertex colors, or what I am missing?
