RGB yellow for APA102 led strips

Post by MMK4243 » Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:53 am

I have pretty good luck on the accuracy of colors for these except yellow which is nothing like a yellow (255,255,0). Has anyone experimented with an RGB number that will give something close to a real yellow? -- thanks much. I get good accuracy on red, blue, green but nothing close to yellow -- of course I realize it's a mix of the 3 and maybe that's an issue for any mixed color. ?

Google "color picker" and find a good yellow. Set the values.

If you read the post, I kind of did that. Try 255 255 0.

Oh well.
