Default Re: Dark Theme in Pro Tools 2020.11

Thanks! I also noticed that:


16-bit color value = (8-bit color value * 256) + 8-bit color value


Example:


ActiveTabColor (19018,35466,64250,65535)


Dividing each of these numbers by 256 and throwing away the remainder (a.k.a integer division or using a floor function) results in 8-bit RGBA values in the 0-255 range:



(74,138,250,255)


Keeping only the remainder (modulus division) results in the same set of values - that means that the Most and Least Significant Bytes of the 16-bit values are the same!



So let's say we're starting with the 8-bit RGBA color spec above. To get the the 16-bit versions:



(74 * 256) + 74 = 19018

(138 * 256) + 138 = 35466

(250 * 256) + 250 = 64250
(255 * 256) + 255 = 65535


Currently this holds for all the default 16-bit RGBA values

To each their own but as I said many times dark mode is what's having me finally update from 2019.6. I stayed on that because of the bugs in the MIDI event list in every PT version after that. but this was the deciding factor.


With having a lot of free time on my hands due to this stupid pandemic combined with my natural curiosity in seeing how things work and trying to fix said things led me to do what I'm doing.


Main thing is we have a choice now that we didn't have before. Use what you want to use

Gotta love the irony of taking the time out of your busy creative schedule to needlessly come on here , help it move towards 31 pages, and explain how you are surprised and too busy to take the time to tweak it .

Love it.


Kev:
Have you seen the latest changes I've made to the file? I posted an imgur link a couple of posts back. I managed to make the track grid in the edit screen a bit more usable.

Thanks for the work as I was going nuts trying to figure out the conversion as most online color table sources use 8 bit values and the dark mode file uses 16 bit. And just to make clear this pdf is for the stock file colors and not the modified colors I and tmuzik have worked out.

Ha ha. Yes it seems ironic. I never said I was too busy, just surprised that this grew into so many posts. Again I appreciate the work for folks that want and like dark mode. For my eyes, I like it bright and bold—but to each their own. Peace.

I can't lay claim to finding the dark mode file but as you've seen I'm one of two people here that are posting changes they've made and what they've found. Surprised there aren't more digging into this. Like I also said I have the time due to this damned plandemic to muck around so I pass along what I've found (at least for Mac users).
