For performance reasons, BrainVoyager supports both index based coloring (e.g. two-color curvature information, or for painting/cutting during flattening) *and* RGB coloring. To store both kinds of information in a separable way, 3 bytes per vertex would not have been sufficient.

Internally, any RGB colored vertex is stored with hexadecimal 0x3f prefix (which resembles single-precision floating point numbers in the range between 0.5 and 2). Index based colors are stored with a prefix of 0x00. Currently, alpha information is not supported (per vertex).
