VirtualDJ 8 User Manual

COLORS


VirtualDJ offers color selection that can be used to highlight tracks in the browser via the Tag Editor and also can be used to mark Points of Interest such as Hot Cues, Saved Loops and Remix Points in the POI Editor and Pads Editor. The color palette can be selected in Options under colorPicker.

There are 4 options to choose from: Auto, Gradient, Simple or System. By default the Color Picker is set to Auto. This will use Gradient colors for the Tag Editor and Simple colors for everything else (Hot Cues, Saved Loops, etc). This behavior can be changed by selecting one of the other Color Picker options to make color selection universal.

Gradient



The Gradient Color Picker offers 8 base colors to choose from (7 colors + 1 transparency). Clicking on one of the offered base colors will open up different shades for that selection. Clicking on one of the variant shades will assign that color to your selection.

Custom values for colors that are not in the default color selector can also be used in the Pads Editor. Entering a Hex or RGB value via VDJScript into the Color Tab of the Pads Editor will display custom colors. Example: color '61,77,38' or color ‘#3D4D26’ will display a dark shade of Olive Green. Common color names can also be used such as color ‘green’. List of Native Effects
