I am interested in the ‘hsl $1’ section of the following patch from the ‘Swatch Object’ help file. Please see below.
The dial connected to this ‘hsl’ section allows for scanning directly through the RGB colour scale, ignoring saturation.
Is there any way of reading this data, to allow for a dial or number box to display the current RGB setting on the output section of the swatch box rather than the 3 separate R, G and B values? So, treating the swatch area horizontally like a single plane (with numerical values of 0-127 for example).
Could someone also please explain the ‘hsl’ section of this patch and what it actually does?
