Color in LSL

Color in LSL

LSL has its own special format for color. LSL uses a vector to store color. Unlike traditional RGB where each channel is 0 -> 255, LSL's color channels are 0 -> 1.

Format: <R, G, B>

• float x Red value [0, 1]
• float y Green value [0, 1]
• float z Blue value [0, 1]

Light colors

Unlike most other functions relating to color in LSL, lights operate in a slightly different color space and thus do not accept a regular RGB value. (Or, they will, however the displayed color will not be the expected color).

Fortunately, this is easily resolved with 2 functions:

  • llsRGB2Linear - Convert regular LSL color into linear color. (for use in lights)
  • llLinear2sRGB - Convert linear color to regular LSL color.

color picker

Equivalent color vectors to the default color picker palette. These are defined in the viewer program directory's skins/default/colors.xml while custom user-saved palette entries will be in user_settings/colors.xml.
