Color in Virtual Palettes

Post by PhilFoleen » Wed Aug 06, 2008 1:24 pm

Here's a suggestion: When you bring up the virtual 5x5 palettes (Group, Color, Position, etc) from the tools menu, it would be great if on the Color Palette, when you store a value, a box shows up in the selected square with a sample of the color stored, like the bubbles do for fixtures.
If you want to paint with light, you're going to need a Palette

You can store multiple colours for different fixtures. How would you see that? Isn't the description enough?

Maybe you could (as a separate thing) set the color of ANY button on ANY Palette. A Nice way to set up groups of related groups.

With Color palettes, you have an open to "Show Colour as used in first fixture".

That's a nice idea.

Only for the operators with too much time and too little knowledge of their swatchbooks :roll:
It could be a nice idea for any touchscreen application for end-users in some situation (Vision.net)
