Gel Swatch Library version 1.2.0, now available through Apple's App Store and iTunes, gives users more options in browsing and searching nearly 1,000 GAM, Lee, and Rosco gel colors.
Compare any two colors in the library, not just similar and complementary colors. And the complementary feature now offers 12 complementary colors instead of the previous six – an improvement suggested by lighting designer Richard Pilbrow.
Other new features:
The Gel Swatch Library earned the ESTA Member's Choice Product Award in the “Widget” category at LDI in October. Since its July introduction, more than 1,700 copies have been purchased, and the application has been praised by many in the lighting industry.
“We've been listening to our customers, and we think these updates will make the application even more useful to them,” said Wybron's Scott Longberry, head developer of the Gel Swatch Library.
In the comments section of the Gel Swatch Library page on iTunes, one customer shared how he “used the heck out of this app.”
“A touring company sent me their rider with three different brands of gel on their lighting sheets. I was able to quickly cross-reference each color and get the colors close enough to keep them happy,” the customer wrote. “I had most of what they wanted but not quite the same brand. … I don't have the budget (rather, a budget at all) to accommodate every touring group that comes here. This helped me do just that with what I had in my inventory.”
The updated application still offers the same features as before – letting users search for gel colors by name or number and displaying each color's Spectral Energy Distribution curve and CMY/RGB percentages.
Customers who have already downloaded the Gel Swatch Library will be notified when the update becomes available. They can download the updates at no additional charge.
