  • It seems like you just need the RGB values so you can recreate the exact color, right? If that's the case then alternativeto.net/software/digitalcolor-meter/?platform=linux would be a good place to start.

  • I actually think that swatch is pretty cool ... I like the numbering concept for the colors - for example theres yellow-100, yellow-200, etc. I could just pause the video and use a sampler to grab the colors, but ideally I would be able to import the swatch somehow.
