I'm about to embark in a project with heavy vertex color painting, in Maya 2020. I used to love Vertex Chameleon, which had a neat suite of selection-based painting tools like a 2D program would have. Unfortunately, its compatibility with recent Maya versions seems discontinued since it went open source, so it doesn't seem like an option anymore. I've seen some plugin called SX Tools but it seems to lack crucial stuff (like brightening/darkening a selection without having to paint new colors, previewing the color adjustments in real-time and stuff like that). I know of no other tool for that purpose, the rest is brush-based tools like Zbrush etc.
With a lot of mobile companies games doing low-poly and vertex-color stuff, seems like a rare empty niche, and I wonder what they use or if they're forced to older versions of Maya. Do you guys know of any good selection-based software (plugin or external, paid or not) with good vertex-coloring tools? Really desperate.
Thanks in advance
