When you pick a color in 3ds Max, you are specifying 24 bits
of color data, which provide a range of over 16 million colors.
Object wireframe colors
are used primarily as an organizational tool. Object naming strategies,
named selection sets, and object wireframe color strategies provide
a rich set of tools for organizing even the most complex scenes.
You can use two dialogs
to specify colors:
Color dialog contains two preset palettes
of colors that you use to set an object’s wireframe color. This
is also the surface color you see in a rendered viewport. The two
color palettes are Default palette and AutoCAD ACI palette.
Selector is a generic dialog that you
use to define any color in the 24-bit color range. For the purpose
of defining colors to assign to objects, it is available only through
the Default palette.
The Layers functionality
lets you organize your scene and can also be used for assigning
object colors. For more information, see
Manage Layers Dialog.
