If L < 0.5, S=(maxcolor-mincolor)/(maxcolor+mincolor) If L >=0.5, S=(maxcolor-mincolor)/(2.0-maxcolor-mincolor) For the example, L=0.45 so S=(.83-.07)/(.83+.07) = .84 If R=maxcolor, H = (G-B)/(maxcolor-mincolor) If G=maxcolor, H = 2.0 + (B-R)/(maxcolor-mincolor) If B=maxcolor, H = 4.0 + (R-G)/(maxcolor-mincolor) For the example, R=maxcolor so H = (.07-.07)/(.83-.07) = 0 To use the scaling shown in the video color page, convert L and S back to percentages, and H into an angle in degrees (ie scale it from 0-360) HSL - RGB If S=0, define R, G, and B all to L Otherwise, test L. If L < 0.5, temp2=L*(1.0+S) If L >= 0.5, temp2=L+S - L*S In the colorbar example for colorbar green, H=120, L=52, S=79, so converting to the range 0-1, L=.52, so temp2=(.52+.79) - (.52*.79) = .899 temp1 = 2.0*L - temp2 In the example, temp1 = 2.0*.52 - .899 = .141 Convert H to the range 0-1 In the example, H=120/360 = .33 For each of R, G, B, compute another temporary value, temp3, as follows: for R, temp3=H+1.0/3.0 for G, temp3=H for B, temp3=H-1.0/3.0 if temp3 < 0, temp3 = temp3 + 1.0 In the example, Rtemp3=.33+.33 = .66, Gtemp3=.33, Btemp3=.33-.33=0 For each of R, G, B, do the following test: If 6.0*temp3 < 1, color=temp1+(temp2-temp1)*6.0*temp3 Else if 2.0*temp3 < 1, color=temp2 Else if 3.0*temp3 < 2, color=temp1+(temp2-temp1)*((2.0/3.0)-temp3)*6.0 In the example, 3.0*Rtemp3 < 2 so R=.141+(.899-.141)*((2.0/3.0-.66)*6.0=.141 2.0*Gtemp3 < 1 so G=.899 6.0*Btemp3 < 1 so B=.141+(.899-.141)*6.0*0=.141 Scale back to the range 0-100 to use the scaling shown in the video color page For the example, R=14, G=90, B=14 Found on the net http://home.iitb.ac*****~shreyaspotnis
