Flash support?

Feb 15, 2007 11:32 AM

Ok - the only way i seem to be able to actually use a downloaded ASE file from Kuler is to
launch AI
Open Swatch Panel
Open Swatch Library...
Other Library...
Locate ASE file from Kuler
A new swatch panel opens up in AI with the Kuler colors but there's no option to export this to a
file of any kind (nevermind a pallette format for flash).

So then I realize after playing around that I need to click on each swatch to add it to my main
Swatch panel.
next I need to export that as an AI.
Then from Flash Import the AI.
Wow (whew!) That's quite a few hoops.
Anyone found a better way?

    Hi Chris,
    Thanks for the post. Currently there isn't an easier way to pull kuler colors into Flash, however, we are always looking for ways to improve functionality. :)

    I agree. It would be great to just be able to download a .clr file... or better yet, make the next version of Flash capable of "adding" .ase files.

    Hi Michael,
    Ask and ye shall receive. Flash CS4 has a Kuler panel, which lets you pull Kuler ASE files directly into your Swatches panel as a theme. It's a little hidden, under Windows > Extensions > Kuler.

    You can also find Kuler panels in Photoshop CS4, Illustrator CS4, InDesign CS4, and Fireworks CS4, in other languages as well. Look under Windows > Extensions > Kuler.

    This is great if you only want to deal with up to 5 colors at a time. For anything larger, kuler is useless and arbitrarily limiting. Why not just allow all CS4 apps to support the same color swatch formats?

    i agree..kuler should be integrated as a panel in every adobe product that deals with color. Combinations should be quietly stored and shared between applications without annoyng open/save dialogs...
