Color conversion scripts

 LSL Portal

The following functions convert between LSL color in Red Green Blue (RGB) format and color in Hue Saturation Value (HSV) format. The functions are based on "c" algorithms from c color conversion but required some debugging and extensive re-working to fit them in to LSL. For a discussion of HSV color format please see the wikipedia entry at HSV Color

//If you wish to use H(0 to 360), leave the boolean value "h360" set to true.

//Edit 12/27/2009: Cleaned up readability, played around a little bit with value calculation, and hopefully everything is more accurate now. failthfulll Moonwall brought it to my attention that the script wasn't working properly when using H ranges of 0 to 360.

HSV to HSL

For more info about the difference between HSL and HSV, see the wikipedia entry: HSL and HSV

Original code most likely from: converting-between-hsl-and-hsv.html

// Convert from HSV (hue, saturation, value) to HSL (hue, saturation, luminosity)
// Created by Michaelangelo David code released to the public domain under GNU GPL version 3.0 license.

HSL.y = HSV.y * HSV.z;
if (HSL.z <= 1) HSL.y /= HSL.z;
else HSL.y /= (2 - HSL.z);
HSL.z /= 2;

return HSL;
}

HSL to HSV

// Convert from HSL (hue, saturation, luminosity) to HSV (hue, saturation, value)

HSL to RGB

I wrote the following two functions since the RGBtoHSL By Cobalt Arkright had a strange bug (math error) when some values was passed to the functions. And I couldn't find a reverse function for RGB to HSL. I tried to find out where the error was but I didn't succeded in fixing it so i wrote them from the beginning with a different approach. The functions are similar however, just something different in the coding.
