    They look great OnlineRender.
    They should work in earlier versions of LW too?

    FYI, last year I wrote a little Windows utility to convert ACB (Adobe Color Book) files to LCL files (Lightwave Color Library), so if you find an ACB online you can download it and convert it into a Lightwave-compatible LCL file.

    If you do a Google search for "Download Palettes", a variety of companies / organizations have published their color palettes in ACB format. Note that the utility does not support ASE (Adobe Swatch Exchange) format files.

    P.S. I changed the linke above to point to the later post with a second / fixed version of the utility

    When you want to use .jcl files with the lightwave color picker, you simply rename them to .lcl

    The one I'm glad I found in the Federal Standard library.

    I don't know where Kryslin got the Federal Standard color library, but here's a .TXT upload from an old LW thread when the Jovian color picker was being implemented, which can be renamed to .LCL:

    I think I found it in that thread. There was that initial block of color libraries, then a few other contributors added the von Luschan skin tones, crayola colors, and the Federal Standard Library.

    Do the .lcl files only work with the paid version of Jovian?

    What version of LW are you running? Jovian is standard in LW now - from v11 I think. And yes, they work.

    The full/paid version of Jovian was integrated into LW11.6. Only the paid version supported the import of color libraries (JCL then, LCL now).

    The original web site is down but you can still visit via timemachine...
