We found that the color-to-color transition with ChromoUpdate was faster than creating the Bird texture from scratch with PhotoChromeleon i.e. 33.1min vs. The total UV projection time required to create the dithered grayscale texture can be derived from the saturation graph in Figure 9. For a black pixel, all three colors: cyan, magenta, and yellow must be fully saturated. Although each color channel requires a different UV exposure time to reach the optimal target saturation, we can only saturate all dyes at the same time since we only have one UV light source, i.e. the UV projector. This results in a saturation gradient, which we captured using the same photo camera as in the previous experiment. A precise alignment is crucial in our system to enable saturation and desaturation of the same pixel with the two projectors. Once all cubes were fully saturated, we started the desaturation experiment by shining a bar of red, green, and blue light from the visible light projector onto each cube to quantify the effect of the light on each dye in the same way as the desaturation experiment in PhotoChromeleon . 3) Updating a grayscale preview to a colored image: We found that updating a grayscale preview texture to a full color texture requires the same reprogramming time as Photo-Chromeleon .
Desaturating a fully saturated black pixel to a target color is representative of the texture transfer approach that was shown in the prior work Photo-Chromeleon , which always starts from a black texture. Since desaturating a pixel back to white requires all three color channels (cyan, magenta, and yellow) to be fully desaturated, the overall time for creating a white pixel equals the longest desaturation time among the three color channels. This occurs because the resolution of the UV projector (1920×1080 pixel) tends to be smaller than many high-resolution 3D model textures. When the dithered image is now projected, each black pixel in the image corresponds to exactly one black pixel in the projection, avoiding aliasing artifacts. Our grayscale preview algorithm creates the dithered pattern using a dithering method by Floyd and Steinberg and applies dithering to the projection image rather than the 3D model texture to avoid aliasing. In starting from a desaturated sample, our method benefits greatly from the quick saturation of the yellow dye in yellow regions and the resulting low saturation levels of cyan and magenta, which can be quickly desaturated subsequently.
You can use it to display your Google Photos and it works with other smart home devices you might own, like Philips Hue lights or a Nest Hello video doorbell. For the best lighting effect, turn off the lights in your room and close curtains to reduce ambient light and this will make the sunset glow ever stronger. In a way, it makes each year’s 10 Best List a temporal thing. Without running down the entire list of standard and optional features, suffice to say the $41,790 base SE model is well appointed. That’s why I have my own personal rule of never considering a movie for my all-time list until it’s at least 10 years old. However, this benefit disappears partially when transitioning from an already existing texture to a new texture because some yellow regions in the new texture might already have high saturation levels for cyan and magenta and thus these need to be desaturated, which takes more time than creating the yellow color from scratch.
We found that this dye ratio offers a slightly darker color when at full saturation, i.e. a better approximation of black and thus better contrast in the resulting photochromic textures. We then airbrushed cyan, magenta, and yellow photochromic coatings in the ratio of 1:1:3 onto the three white cubes. I took a spot meter reading off the forehead and then chose to underexpose it slightly. We then convert the color image into a grayscale image, and finally apply dithering. To determine the desaturation after a certain time of exposure to visible light, we sampled each gradient image with 40 data points by partitioning the gradient in 40 equidistant regions and computed the mean saturation value (S) in the HSV color representation. We first create the colored projection image for the UV projector, which as a result is already downsized and has the correct resolution (1920×1080 pixels). 2) Updating a grayscale preview with a different grayscale image: As shown in Figure 5, updating a grayscale preview can result in either only black pixels being added (i.e., when a new element is added in a previously white area), white pixels being added (i.e., when an element is erased), or both.
