Nexyad Skin « Yellow & Green »

What is a Nexyad Skin ?
The Nexyad Skins are based on a high technology combining image analysis, human visual perception analysis, image processing and color theories of great picturial movements. Whatever the incoming images (rushes or already modified) the application of our Skins generates a final rendering with the selected colors positioned where we wish. The all process is digital.
Our skins are not LUT and it do not need any human intervention. Job is done in one click.

Yellow and green are just beside on the color Wheel, in fact they merge from one to the other. But even combined all together one can keep a good contrast. This Nexyad Skin does not remove the other colors in image, but it rotate them enough to make all agree to each others. So we apply the green on the background and the shadows and the yellow for the characters skins because it is possible. Yellow can have two different significations: the good one for golden, sunny and rich color; or the bad one that means treachery, lying and deceit. Green has the distinction of being perfectly perceived by the human eye as « green » even if it is extremely light or dark. In psychology we can nevertheless distinguish two greens: green apple or green pulling to yellow that gives a positive feeling of fullness and youth (it’s the one that we took for demos films); and contrariwise dark green that is perceived as negative or even maleficent.
