Aspecular (Flat/Flop) Angles – reflectance off from the specular angle. We use to allow a better review of the “base” or underlying color in pearlescent effect system.
Brightness – could be a reference like adjusting brightness on a cell phone, or meaning something like saturation, or possibly lightness/value, or flash/pearl reflection. For us it’s probably best used for pearl effect description rather than color.
Chroma/Chromaticity – the intensity or saturation level of a particular hue. A hue at its highest intensity has no other color mixed with it.
Fluorescence- excitement of a color under UV light. Fluorescent dyes, fluorescent pigments, and optical brighteners act by absorbing ultraviolet radiation and re-radiating a portion of this energy as visible light. Can be an aspect of Metamerism
Hue – the purest form of a color, as around a color wheel. Colors that have not been mixed with white or black. When we say red, yellow, green, we’re talking hues.
Intensity – brightness or degree of a color’s purity or saturation. See Chromaticity
Metamerism – a phenomenon that occurs when two objects appear to match in color under one light source but not under another.
Opacity – the measure of the amount of light that can pass through a material. The level of scattering and absorbing that occurs.
Saturation – attribute of color perception that expresses the degree of departure from a gray of the same lightness. Grays have no saturation. See Chromaticity. Sometimes used to reference depth of color.
Simultaneous Contrast - refers to the way in which two different colors affect each other. One color can change how we perceive the appearance of another when the two are placed side by side.
Specular Reflectance (Flash) – reflectance of a beam of light at an angle equal but opposite to the incident angle; mirror like reflectance.
Transparent vs Translucent – clear like glass vs cloudy/milky characteristics.
Value – the natural lightness or darkness in a hue, or the amount of white or black in a color.
