    CMYK Color picker that constantly samples
    Hello !

    I'm looking for a color picker / eyedropper (for desktop) for continually displaying the CMYK values of a particular place on the screen. (without needing to click every time to get a read)

    The goal - I would like to use this as an aid for mixing acrylic paint to get a desired color.
    I video-shoot the paint as I mix and add the CMYK primes to it, and on the video image I want to have the color picker constantly updating with the color values, so I have feedback on the color as it changes.

    I managed to do that with the os color picker, but that requires to click on the magnifying glass and the picture every time I want a readout...

    Anyone has an idea ?

    Thanks

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Did find something that does just that, unfortunately for windows only, if anyone is interested.
