Hello Panu!

I can confirm that the new version corrects the palette editor's generation of data! This is a great program, making it really easy to pick YUV colors to match RGB requirements.

Thanks again for your hard work on this!

Hello Panu,
Finally I got to use the Palette Editor as well. Really enjoying it, this makes life between RGB and YUV so much easier.
One thing I noticed, the RGB value display under the Microcode input shows the R,G and B twice but in different order. The 24bit value is formatted as BBGGRR, the separate value are in the order R,G, B.
Is there a special reason for the different orders or is it just a mixup?
I was confused in the beginning, but now I know how to pick the values for my conversion table.

Hi, great that it works!

Hmm, not sure but it might be that my software internally uses r,g,b, and the 24-bit value is whatever comes from Windows when my OnMouseMove handler queries the color of the screen pixel under the mouse position.
