Multiplane Camera plane colors

Post by D.T. Nethery » 17 Nov 2020, 14:54

When using the Multiplane Camera FX "Wizard" to select clips or layers as Sources for the multiplane camera , the Wizard selection tool automatically assigns different colors to each plane , so it is easier to see which plane to select and drag to reposition the plane on the Stage. However, if you forego using the Wizard and choose to set up each Plane one at a time and choose the images from the Library as sources , the color assigned to each plane is always the same color , so the colors have to be changed manually.

My request is that when the user manually creates a new plane then a different color is assigned to the new plane than was assigned to the previous plane. (the option still exists so that the colors may be changed manually by the user at a later time if they want to , but in the simple action of creating a new plane it will not be assigned the identical color as other planes created previously. )
