Extract CLUT and turn it into a Paint Shop Pro palette?
« on: July 09, 2017, 10:37:25 pm »
I am dealing with a ".TIM" file with 16 CLUTs, each with 16 colors. I would like to extract some of these CLUTs and have them in ".PspPalette" or ".pal" format that can be used with Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9.

I realize I can always take an existing 16 color Paint Shop Pro palette and just change the index values to match what is in the CLUT, but that is time consuming.

Is there a way to extract CLUTs from a ".TIM" and have it in a palette format that can be loaded into Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9?

I used Tim2View to rip the sprites with the correct CLUT loaded into ".PNG" files.

Unfortunately, the palette in those ".PNG" files do not match the CLUT.

Is there some program out there that can extract the CLUTs into a usable format? I vaguely remember something called PVV, but I'm not too sure...I think that one was specifically for VRAM.

EDIT: Yup, PVV can't open ".TIM" files.
