You are here: Surfaces > GeometryColorSetter


Sets colors, via appearances, on geometries (such as surfaces) that support appearances, and match a Geometry XQuery.

For ease of reference, these geometries are called matching geometries. Existing appearances are removed from these matching geometries before new appearances are added.

When Color Generation is set to Random, this transformer creates uniformly spaced, random colors. The randomized colors are the same each time you run the workspace, facilitating visualization and demo creation.

For more information on appearance support in FME, see Appearances.

Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
