Since the background image can vary so much and often effects work best on darker to black footage, I find it hard to see the article paths and keyframe nodes since they are in dark-gray or black.

I've seen no way to change the color of these unlike i.e. Safe Zone, etc.

Point: Not everyone has 20/20 vision. Being able to change the color and brightness of the particle paths in Bezier view mode to clearly contrast with one's footage (i.e. neon green over black or mauve footage, etc.) would really, really be useful

If already possible in some form, please advose of how/where.
Thanks.

I'm playing with PI demo since yesterday - love the simplicity and the intuitive appeal but I'm not sure about some display issues too:
I think the blockers dots outline circles dont need to be that big... I would prefer a filled blocker display with points instead of these big, offsetted outlines...next to that a bezier/spline based option for drawing blockers would be great...but maybe I'm overlooking sth. here- in that case please enlight/forgive me.
Being able to change the path colors is a must in my opinion too...(I was lucky with my footage so far).

Any of the PI staff and particle wizards have some thoughts on this Q? :)
Some modality of a reply would be appreciated.

It isn't possible to change the colours now. The only thing I can think of that might make it easier is to drop an Increase Brightness emitter onto your footage as you work (it's in the May 2001 library), and then delete it before render time.

OK, thanks, Deane. That said, I hope such a feature would be considered somewhere down the line. NRN

I've added these to the "future features" list. Bezier blockers has been on the list for quite a while, and being able to change colors for all of the different objects and paths is now too.
