Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What is the correct color space for video?, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Terms and Technology (2014).
- Besides the bit depth of the color,…it's important to realize that…there's different color modes.…Many graphics applications, such as Photoshop…and Illustrator are designed to create…outputs for many different needs.…Architects use Photoshop to work…with blueprints and 3D models.…And of course, photographers, imaging of all types,…find Adobe Photoshop useful.…And of course, when it comes to Illustrator…there are many traditional illustrators or animators…that use it and often times, these outputs…are intended for commercial printing.…
Well, in that case, it's CMYK.…Cyan, magenta, yellow, key, or black.…This is a subtractive color theory…and this type of color theory is useful…when it comes to print based graphics.…On the other hand, when we're designing for video,…we're working with additive color.…Red, green and blue combined to create white,…or essentially pure white light.…This is why a white light source…can be split apart using a prism…into all the colors of the rainbow.…
