These will bring up (or focus, if already visible) a minimal GUI in which you can adjust track color (R,G,B / H,S,V) and A (alpha = “blend”) values.
More info in the manual (see the tool page)
Note that this tool can generate some extra undo data. Every time the track color changes, an undo point is generated. I’ve tried to minimize this to some extent by not having the track colors update instantly to reflect the slider changes. This might need some finetuning too.
A known issue for now is that setting exact HSV values by typing them in acts somewhat erratically. I’m guessing this HAS to be some kind of rounding error weirdness in the HSV-RGB transformation…
press key combo
cmd+g —> change group sibling tracks color to group parent color
shift+ cmd + g —> change group sibling tracks color to selected track’s color
(substitute cmd with ctrl on windows and linux)
I think this will allow flexibility enough, but this was kinda hard design task. So I’m open to suggestions for better group color handling. It should however be something simple and yet powerful enough.
And an important note: These shortcuts will by default IGNORE group siblings that are also groups. This I don’t know whether it’s good or bad. I’m not sure how to approach this problem. />/>
If this stuff works, I’ll probably upload this when tidied up into the tools page.
Will be fixed…: removed a misplaced debug error notice when trying to apply selected track colors to group siblings on a track that has no parent track.
Should be implemented: Applying group track color to the group when a group track is selected must also work. For the test version, (if my memory serves me right) it does nothing…
