Color Panel palette buttons menu

Post by Soom » 14 Jul 2021, 05:07

Hi
In the last TVPaint Version we finally have got shortcuts for the Color Palette modes. In a late night's procrastination effort I have created this custom panel with buttons to quickly select between color palette modes.
You can use it and do to it whatever you like.
In my workspace I stick it just above the Color Panel

ha wow thats funny...
i had been working (eh well...procrastinating :-) ) on the same thing
a different direction though...
i was thinking more of something in line with the curent tvpaint icons and still working on it, i'm mostly not happy with the variations one...

When trying this, i really appreciatie good icons more, its an art form in itself, and getting it right comes down to the pixel

My idea behind doing all the palette icons in monochrome
might seem counterintuitive for colorpalette icons,
but i was thinking as they are all full of color, adding color to the icons doesn't help to distinguish them.
so i tried to come up with icons that signify the difference aproach of selecting colors most.

Oh, haha - I thought somebody will probably do it better :) I frankly didn't put much effort into the icons - I didn't have time for it - I just made screenshots of the panels, reduced and cleaned them up a bit, but even this took some time (while I was supposed to be working on my storyboards :)). Yours look way more professional - I might even use them instead of mine - can you post your panel once it's finished?
thanks

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but it defaults to the blue that was set when I loaded the plugin.
It's only when I first start TVPaint. Otherwise it acts the way it should while the program is open.
