You can use the Colour Fade effect to change the colours in your artwork from the colours in their original palette to the colours in an alternate palette. This works just like overriding a character’s palette with an alternate palette using the Colour-Override effect.
For this to work, your alternate palette must be a clone of the original palette. This is because the Colour-Fade effect knows which colours in the original palette to replace with which colours in the alternate palette based on each colour’s “colour ID”. When you clone a palette, you create a new palette with the same colour IDs as the original palette, but you can change the colours in the cloned palette without affecting the original palette—see Cloning a Palette .
If you add a colour to the original palette after you created a clone of it, you can clone the colour from the original palette to the clone palette, so that it also has the same colour IDs across palettes—see Copying and Pasting Colours .
In the Node View, click on the Layer Properties button of the Colour-Correct node.
The Layer Properties dialog of the Colour-Correct node appears.
In the Palettes list, select the clone palette which you want to use to override the element’s original palette.NOTE You do not need to select the original palette used in your artwork. The Colour Fade effect only needs the alternate palette. It will find which colours to replace with the colours in the alternate palette by matching their colour IDsTIP
You can also use an alternate palette that is on your computer or your Harmony Server database, even if it is not in your scene:
- To add a palette from your Harmony Server database, click on the Add database palette button.
- To add a palette from your computer to the list, click on the Add file system palette button.
Click on the Add button between the Palettes list and the Whole Palettes Overrides list.
As soon as the clone palette is added to the Whole Palette Overrides list, you should see its effect in the Camera view.NOTE
If you don’t see the effect of the palette override, make sure that the palette you selected is actually a clone, and not just a copy, of one of the palettes used by the scene element to which the effect is connected—see Cloning a Palette .
