What is an MSW file?
An MSW file contains a set of paint swatches created in Corel Painter, an application used to paint digital art. The swatches an MSW file contains appear as rectangles in Painter's Mixer panel. Saving a set of swatches as an MSW file allows artists to easily re-use those swatches in future projects.
The Mixer is a Corel Painter feature that allows users to blend colors and create paint swatches. After a user creates a set of swatches, they can save those swatches as an MSW file.
