I programmed colourpickers in visual touch, they control RGB fixtures. However, the white colour doesn't look nice, so I want to change the RGB levels. Can I do that within the colourpicker?

No, the colour picker only works for the RGB channels

Hi Dennis,

No I meant the white button in the colourpicker. For example, white equals red at 100%, green at 100% and blue at 100%. That seems blue instead of white. I want to change the level of white, for only that colourpicker.

Well, the colours are stored in <HOME>/Visual Productions/Common/Colours/Factory/Palette16.xml (for the picker16) This allows you to set different colours and as long as there's no big difference between the output of your fixture & colour rendered by your monitor it should be ok.

But the .xml file is used for all colourickers of the same amount.
Also, because the file is located in the "common" directory it might be overwritten after a software update.

If I'm right, it has 3 parts: the first 2, middle 2 and last 2 digits. Then it will be 0-15 with after 9 A, B, C, D, E and F as values. Then you can create 16*16=256 values of R, G and B. Just like a DMX fader has 256 values (0-255). Now you need to have some Maths to calculate your values. If you need a colour of, its 00, full on of a colour is FF.
