The NEXYAD skin 3-strip reproduces the Technicolor process used from the thirties to the sixties, as we analyzed in many films. It is not just saturate the colors, or to multiply the red, green and blue together. Otherwise we fast get fluorescent colors everywhere; meadows « lime green » skies « cobalt blue », etc … in all circumstances. However, we give luster to certain shades for famous movies like « The Wizard of Oz, » « Gone with the Wind, » « Duel in the Sun, » « An American in Paris, » « Scaramouche » « Ben Hur », « Lawrence of Arabia », etc.
The overall rendering of skin Nexyad 3-Strip is rather dark in luminance (case generally observed on the period films), with a quite strong contrast saturation: low saturated colors may alternate with saturated color spots. Similarly, all colors are not possible. In particular, the red shades are highly targeted.
