|fig.2c technicolor circles (goodfellas)||< 3 / 6 >|
Computer based visualization of the most common colours in a movie scene in which someone is lighting a cigarette in a car.
Based on the concept of representing the predominant colours of an image as circles spread on an area, I worked out a method, where the position of the circles was strictly defined depending on its colour value. In digital systems, each colour code consists of 3 values (e. g. RGB). To give each colour a unique position, I worked with a 3-dimensional coordinate system. Additionally to the calculated position the size of each circle is representing the frequency of the colour in the image. From the threedimensional program a twodimensional still is exported to create the above image.
