Author Topic: ColorConvert - Color tool for Substance Painter  (Read 9089 times)

First of all, I apologise if this is not the place to post this.

I have noticed a lot of people have been a little confused by Substance Painters choice to use decimalised (0-1) RGB colors instead of the standard 0-255 RGB layout.

As I have just finished college I had some time kicking around and decided to do something about this.

This is where ColorConvert somes in, ColorConvert is a free, open-source tool I have released that allows users to convert hex, RGB and RGB Decimalised into the other 2, which has improved my workflow over the last week or so and thought I should share it with the rest of you.

I have hosted the first version on CodePlex, which can be found at

I will be continually updating this as and when I need to, if you do choose to give it a try, please read the info in the Help tab, it explains a bit on how to use it, and what you can and cannot do with it.

This can be used quite well in conjunction with ColorPic and will always stay topmost (on-top of other windows) as ColorPic does.

If any of you do choose to take a look, please let me know what you think.

Quite usefull, thanks.

Quite the opposite! The Substance Painter color widget is in linear space (not sRGB as in Photoshop). So if you have ever tried to match a color by using RGB from photoshop you run into having to convert to decimal from 0-255 RGB. This in itself is not hard to do - you simply divide your color by 256. For example : 127 (gray) = 127 / 256 = 0.496.

or... you can use the handy converter that kyle_12 has generously offered. :)


I have corrected a slightly embarrassing bug from the initial release.
The new version is here:
