.COL File Extension

Autodesk Color Palette

Question: What is an COL File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an COL file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an COL file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .COL extension are known as Autodesk Color Palette files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the COL extension, please let us know.

How to open a COL file:

The best way to open an COL file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the COL file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the COL file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

    ArtRage uses .col files for its color palettes. When the file is imported, a .col file should display a color name and a color swatch for each of the colors in the collection.

    I would like to know how to create .col files so I can expand my available colors, but have not found the information needed to do that.
