I think this has been mentioned before, but would it be possible to get a color palette or at least a color bar in the adjust color window (in both lighting and prop customization)? It's hard to tell what color I'm moving towards as I scroll...

Turn up the color intensity and you can see all the colors as you scroll through.

I've never seen the format for color that I've seen for moviestorm anywhere else. In line with keeping things in a familar format, putting in a more conventional color pallette would certainly make it easier for me. That double slider thing is HARD to get an exact shade on.

Yes, Lucinda - of course turning up the intensity does help, but I simply prefer to have a visual color spectrum so that I don't have to scroll through all the options. I like to "jump" directly to the color I want, you know? Also, I'm used to using specific color definitions in HSB/RGB mode. It might be a good idea to have an "advanced" option so we can perfectly match colors from other resources (like Photoshop) or the various content within the scene (i.e. if I want my couch to perfectly match my chair, etc., it might be easiest to manually define my colors numerically).

New colour palette is out in new build. What'ya think? There are still no HSB values, but is it headed in the right direction?

Definitely headed in the right direction, twak. A very useful tool. Do you know if this will be what the final UI for color options will be?
