Layer Color other than given RGB

Hi there,

I tried to set a Layer Color via

> layer_data = layer.GetLayerData(doc)
> layer_data['color'] = c4d.Vector(200,100,50)
> layer.SetLayerData(doc,layer_data)

If I take 255,0,0 as RGB-Values, it's a red one so this works basically.
But the result of 200,100,50 is a white layer instead of a brown one.

in Vectors colors do usually get stored in floating point values ranging from 0.0 to 1.0 instead of integer values from 0 to 255.

k. are there other - maybe simpler than calculating from 0-255 to 0-1 - possibilities since the RGB-Values in the ColorChoosers are also from 0-255?

Converting 0-255 to 0-1.0 is only a matter of dividing the value by 255. Can't get much simpler than that
