    Default Gradient folders

    Each song that I sequence, I have a different color scheme. Is there a way to put these sets of colors in a gradient folder. so when i'm working on a specific song I only see those assigned colors 4 or 5, and not see every color I have made for my whole show?

    I guess I'm the only one that could use folders.

    how many colors do you use? I've found that I've added all the colors i ever use to the preset library and it comes out to less than a dozen in total. They're always all visible on my screen.

    But if you want to manage them in groups, you can certainly export your preset libraries to a file and then reimport the appropriate one when you want to use it.

    I use 4 or 5 per song. I make sure the colors I use actually match each other, and want each song to have a unique color scheme.

    I have not figured out how to do this myself I just have a list of like 15 presets I use normally but once you said this I went to try it and not sure how is there info on how to do this on the vixen site?

    There is an import and export folder on the toolbar in the preset libraries docker. You can do it for colors, curves, or gradients.

    color collections are for something else. And honestly, i don't remember what for. I think it had to do something with the old nutcracker effects.

    There are some automated features to add multiple effects that can rotate through the color collections so each effect added uses a different color based on the collection used.
