    You're welcome - I haven't switched your request on just yet.

    I will probably go through unapproved posts on Friday, since hopefully then my life won't be quite so chaotic.

    Let me fix the uploads for PNG - I prefer that format too. I will ammend your feature request post.

    Hmmm. Since all forum images are converted to JPGs... the compression is butchering the images. To view a PNG that clearly shows the differences, go here:

    Thanks!

    Here's a bit better comparison image (I hope).

    Thanks!

    Kenneally,

    I will do that, but here's one variation on the possibilities of UI customization.

    Thanks!

    Add it to the Feature List forum - fire up photoshop if you want to offer some suggestions.

    oh, I agree with you, we need a standard windows color picker to let us create our own preferred clip color

    Anton,

    I need to clear up some confusion. The colors are normal and have been normal as you will see in the attached image that compares SR's color clip images with mine... the colors are the same. (SR is using a different font and possibly with display anti-aliasing turned on but other than that... they're the same. - SR what font is that your using?).

    What I have been complaining about is the developer's CHOICE of clip colors as you can also see in the attached image. For the darker colors (dark blue, dark green and dark purple) the developers chose 100% saturated colors that practically glow in the dark. This 100% saturated color is the clip color when a clip is selected. When it's not selected... the clip color is darked slightly.

    But because the garrish, 100% saturated color was chosen, even the deselected/darkened clip still practically glows in the dark.

    Contrast these colors with the stark white clip text and the problem becomes even more apparent.

    What I wish is that the developers would simply choose a more desaturated color to begin with so my eyeballs would stop glowing in the dark.

    Thanks!

    do the colors appear normal when you start a new project and add some clips?

    Anton,

    Thanks for the ideas but I'm not sure what you mean. Why would I want them to be default (which appears to be white according to the swatch).

    When opening a previous 4.24 project, the colors are what they are and some were identified as 'unknown' in the bin. When I opened the clip color dialog... the ones I opened (the dark blue clips) all said 'default'. When I then chose the dark blue color instead to reassign the color, the color stays the same but the text finally reverses out to white as it should.

    So this is the answer for getting the reversed text part... re-assign the colors again.

    What's weird is... once I found (or was shown) this solution I went to do this on all the clips. Some of the clips already knew there proper colors even though I hadn't reset them yet (such as the 'Light Blue' clips).

    Thanks!

    to set clip color to default, go to clip properties and select default at the bottom of the File Info Tab

    Unfortunately... I have just noticed a crash issue.

    I have loaded the project that I have been working on (and all other aspects seem OK so far) and I was going to each bin folder to re-color all the clips.

    When I go to the 'Titles' folder (which has a lot of titles in it) Edius 4.51 crashes... every time. Not sure exactly how many are in there but I would guess about 50. These are all Quick Titler titles, by the way.

    Thanks!

    SR,

    What is the font that is being used on your system? The Windows Classic for me sets it to Tahoma under the appearances tab.

    Are you running your display card to anti-alias the interface?

    Thanks!
