i really hope this is easy to understand (maybe i need to improve my english skills) and you guys will create awesome effects with this technique :)

colors & brightness for vectors:

Red: 255 0 0
Green: 0 255 0
Blue: 0 0 255
Yellow: 255 255 0
Pink: 255 0 255
Cyan: 0 255 255
White: 255 255 255
Black: 0 0 0

I have made a Hue/Saturation/Brightness to RGB converter function in the editor, but I don't know if there's any practical way to share it at the moment...

Aw shoot, the same function works in my favorites just fine... I don't know about the file management on next gen consoles but on PC it's simple to remove a favorite from the save folder. Which one do you have?

Your picture]

So, basically this is a conversion from the numbers that you see in the editor to the colors right? I was actually changing emission and I just used this

While waiting for some kind of way to manually delete save files, you could try saving only one object as a favorite and name it to start with letter A so that when you'll open the favorites tab, it will be the first favorite on the list and won't crash the editor.

i think i know what caused the problem!
when you save connected operations (on xb1) to your favorites, their connection (the red arrows) get lost. extract function cant work without connected operations, thats the problem. please fix it soon
