Color import via CSV (template needed)

(1/2) > >>

MWo:
Hello community.

I'm searching for an example or template to import a color (in library) via CSV.
Every Excel file saved as CSV failed to import correctly.

I try to create a template to import CMYK values as a color.


Thanks for your help.


Cheers

Keyshot not really being a print program (InDesign, Photoshop), I think it would have difficulty dealing with the CMYK color space import. I know you can create CMYK colors within Keyshot but I believe it's using the RGB or HSV values to generate the equivalent (albeit smaller space) colors of CMYK. Going from RGB or HSV is (relatively) easy but going the other way (CMYK to RGB) is difficult because you're having to fill in the missing colors of the larger RGB color space. See attachment...

All I know is that going from RGB to CMYK for greens is going to be the death of me.

Furniture_Guy:
LOL! Yes, blues and greens are by far the worst. That pop or brilliance just disappears on paper...
