Color cube - interesting 3D color picker idea: a rotatable cube (drag with mouse). From

I'm gonna carefully peruse the drunkmen archive to see what else I missed.

very nice, both

we'd like to see inside the cube though, no?

You can, albeit archaic, create cross-sections in 3 earlier editions. Check the thematical archive under 'colour pickers'. The same goes for hsv space.

here's my first approximation - some dodgy polys but u get the idea ...

That is cool. I wouldn't have thought of making it that way.

However, the rotation would be better if it worked by rotating relative to the screen, not by changing the parameters of x and y rotation.

And sometimes the whole polugon becomes a mess. Don't know why.

your absolutely right ... have been too lazy to sort the rotation properly

the reson the thing messes up is cos of shiftdown and controldown trying to move the section face ... not working yet

So, it's alpha channel on the inside?

it's rgb for xyz all through ... 0 to 255 edges has been updata'd ...

... re-updata'd, enlarged and improved.

shift / control to move section face forward / backward
