I got excited when I paid for the Pro version because I wanted to use the Themes & Color Customization
But I’m slightly disappointed as the actual colours I wanted can’t be pre-defined by me.
That’s to say, there’s a single default colour, but all others chosen by the user are of a pre-set base set (i.e. absolute red, green, blue etc)
Maybe my expectations are too high, or being fussy in wanting certain RGB/Hex colours.
But is there not an option in Themes to set your own set of colours? - which is what I’d hoped for!
PS, I can’t create a topic in ‘Feature requests’ which is where I was going to ask if this can be added if not.
Unfortunately that is the easiest way to offer users a lot of colors. If you want to create a palette of your own, you need to use VAR functions. LMK if you need help.
@Astradyne The very Unique thing is you can set any colour you want in the preview using your camera But as @thomasfmal has said you can use a simple Var opacity thing to set your selection of colours . I have done a test and can not find the limit of the Var count . I think it is 64 bit so that could give you a choice of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 colours . However most will agree with you that the Theme Colours are Shite . You have obviously spent a bit of time on another Planet .
Thanks for the replies, @thomasfmal I don’t suppose you have an INSPECT face you can send me so I can dissect how to use VAR into the theme module? I appreciate you’ve offered to help.
I’m used to JS/JQuery, but this baffles me as I can’t see how to set a VAR value in the first place and the documentation is vague at best.
@russellcresser and yes, being on another planet at times opens your mind to the default colour palette on Facer not suitable for all
If a VAR could be set to a set of values (e.g. 1,2 or 3), how would I got about setting HEX value to 1=#FF0000 say?
Ha Ha @Astradyne . Since I am no longer a Pro it is not easy for me to do a test for you . If you get stuck I can Unearth a Template I saved . You can not do Hex colour Manipulation . All you can do is duplicate the element you want different colours and switch them on with Opacity or send them off Screen .
So your Tap Pad will keep counting but Modulo % will convert the count to a Cycle .
Sorry the syntax might be a bit out .
My memory is not that good .
Im away from my computer, but Ill help you later today.
Im going to create a tutorial for this so that it’s easier to find for others. I’ll put a link here after I finish.
Perfect, it amazes me there’s so little detailed documentation on what is an amazing product.
Hopefully they can consider using your stuff as I can see a lot of contribution from yourself in these forums.
Great tutorial, far more in depth than official documentation. Tested on my own face on various elements and works really well.
Thanks again mate.
