What is Kaleidoscope?
Kaleidoscope is an add-on designed for Blender that adds in a few nodes that can help you in making your scene more colorful and accurate to the real world.
The Spectrum Node of the add-on allows you to generate and use color palettes directly inside Blender. Just connect the colors to the nodes, and then you can manage the palette directly through the Spectrum node. It is global for every scene, so if you change in in one material, the node updates for all the materials.
With the colorful Spectrum Engine, you can generate infinite color palettes that follow certain rules such as Monochromatic, Complementary, Triadic, and even more. Whether you have a base color in mind or just want to modify the hues and saturation of palette, Spectrum has it all for you.
The Spectrum Node has the option to load online palettes, which are regularly added by me, or the Community Palettes that are added by users using the add-on around the world. You can also Publish your own palette in this community Palettes list.
Spectrum is compatible with ColorRamps, by making an invisible link to the ColorRamp you choose. This is useful when you want to modify the proportions of colors in the palette.
Intensity is a collection of all those pre-defined values nicely categorized and can be used directly in your scene. If you are looking for correct Glass IOR value, or just the correct Blackbody temperature value to make your lighting colors look correct, Intensity has it for you. Now you don't have to go to the internet and waste time searching for a value. It is all inside Blender
Both Spectrum and Intensity node can be animated and also have built in syncing functionality. This would allow you to transfer all your saved palettes and values from one system to another automatically.
