I am trying to create content for D-cinema. Therefor I need to do colorspace conversion to XYZ colorspace. I found these RGB/XYZ Matrices but do not really know how to use the values... Does anybody have a clue? All the best! SwK

Code: ```[X Y Z] = [R G B][a b c] [d e f] [g h i] X = (R * a) + (G * d) + (B * g) Y = (R * b) + (G * e) + (B * h) Z = (R * c) + (G * f) + (B * i)``` The matrix M, shown below, is the RGB -> XYZ matrix for a given working space. Scroll down on that page you were on and you'll see the matrix M you need to use Code: ``` [a b c] M = [d e f] [g h i] Adobe RGB -> XYZ matrix: [0.5767309 0.2973769 0.0270343] M = [0.1855540 0.6273491 0.0706872] [0.1881852 0.0752741 0.9911085] [X Y Z] = [R G B] M X = (R * 0.5767309) + (G * 0.1855540) + (B * 0.1881852) Y = (R * 0.2973769) + (G * 0.6273491) + (B * 0.0752741) Z = (R * 0.0270343) + (G * 0.0706872) + (B * 0.9911085)``` Understand now? __________________ You can't call your encoding speed slow until you start measuring in seconds per frame.

And you may need to linearize the sRGB, by applying a reverse gamma of 2.2, and some special cases for very small values: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRGB The linearized sRGB to XYZ is: Code: ``` 0.4124564 0.2126729 0.0193339 0.3575761 0.7151522 0.1191920 0.1804375 0.0721750 0.9503041``` (Moved to general development) __________________ Regards, sh0dan // VoxPod Last edited by sh0dan; 15th October 2009 at 15:27.
 16th October 2009, 12:37 #5  |  Link elmarikon der Name sagt alles     Join Date: Jul 2008 Location: Hamburg, Germany Posts: 37 ooookay... so I was trying to get that all into a avisynth script, but with minor success..:-( I could not figure out how to combine e.g. X = (R * 0.5767309) + (G * 0.1855540) + (B * 0.1881852) into one new channel... this is my script right now: Code: ```vid = Mpeg2source("...").ConvertToRGB24 vidx = RGBAdjust(vid,0.4124564,0.3575761,0.1803475) vidy = RGBAdjust(vid,0.2126729,0.7151522,0.0721750) vidz = RGBAdjust(vid,0.0193339,0.1191920,0.9503041) MergeRGB(vidx,vidy,vidz,"RGB24")``` The result is just a little more bluish, then the source... I guess, it's not that easy, right?! I attached an image in RGB (the original) and one in xyz colorspace. The xyz should of cause in the end look the same as the rgb, but since IrfanView or sth. can't deal with xyz it looks LSD-ish:-) So, I will have to change the colors to make it look as freaky as the xyz image... for your help!

Otherwise, your efforts will be (unfortunately) fruitless, since avisynth is limited to YVx and RGB color spaces. __________________ You can't call your encoding speed slow until you start measuring in seconds per frame.

I know about that, but by simply recoloring the images, I guess it must be possible to achieve the goal of having some kind of 'fake xyz' or am I wrong? Has no one got an idea?

 23rd October 2009, 13:32 #9  |  Link elmarikon der Name sagt alles     Join Date: Jul 2008 Location: Hamburg, Germany Posts: 37 So, the idea was to recolor R-->X G-->Y B-->Z export as raw images or tiffs and interpret as xyz colorspace afterwards. But I just can't figure out how to recolor properly... what do u think??
