Color an object inside GH without baking it (ghplayer)

I have a little grasshopper definition that just creates curves for Rhinocam. To streamline things, I change the colors of the curves, because RhinoCam can automatically detect them and apply operations based on their color.

Using it in Grasshopper is no problem. I use Human to bake with attributes.

Using it with Grasshopper Player is a problem, because both Human and Elefront’s bake components are dead ends, I can’t pass the colored curves from them to Grasshopper Player’s context bake.

Definition is below. It requires Human and Sasquatch (sasquatch component in red group in screengrab). I’m adding a screengrab in case you don’t have sasquatch because my questions are very simple and unrelated to that part of the definition anyway:

Is there a Human or an Elefront component that can apply attributes to an object within grasshopper and keep that object for further use in Grasshopper, with it’s attributes?

Or can I use Human or Elefront bake instead of Grasshopper Player context bake in Grasshopper Player?

Is there some other way around this?

It’s not super graceful, but it works, I replaced your troubled components with a little rhinocommon and added a bake/abort option at the end (not because you need an abort, but because I couldn’t work out how to stop it baking every time you add a setting, sorry :sweat_smile:) - hope this helps,
