I recently uploaded some abstract mathematical animations to Youtube, and shared some of the still frames on FurAffinity and DeviantArt. Since then, I have written a blog post on my website, explaining exactly how I made these animations, and why they are so interesting. If you haven't seen my video yet, you should definitely check it out, and read my blog posts too!

You can watch the original video here:

You can read about how it was made here:

Journal History


LAB Color-Space Animated
Another important color space is the CIE-LAB color space. This color space is somewhat unique in that it tries to encapsulate uniform color perception. That is, if two colors look similar, they will be (more-or-less) the same distance apart, regardless of there chromatics or hue. Compare this with the standard XYZ or even RGB color spaces, where similar greens can be spaced much further apart than similar blues, for instance. You may already be familiar with this color space if you use some of the advanced photo editing features in Photoshop. Once again, the animation plots the A and B channels on the X and Y axis, while the Luminance varies with time.

You can read more about the LAB Color space on Wikipedia:…
XYY Color-Space Animated
One important color space is the 1931 CIE-XYZ color space, as this is pretty much used as the standard from which all other color spaces are based. Typically though, one dose not work in the XYZ color space directly, but rather the related XYY color space, as this is easier for humans to visualize. Similar to my animation of the YUV color space, I have plotted the chromatic components on the X and Y axis, while allowing the luminance to vary with time. Because the CIE-XYZ space is an absolute color space, independent of viewing conditions, certain assumptions had to be made. In this case I am using the sRGB standard. You can see the three points of the visible 'triangle' correspond to the red, green, and blue primaries respectfully.

YUV Color-Space Animated
I was wanting to add support for different color spaces to my program, but I was wanting to see what sort of coverage those color spaces had. Thus I created this animation for the YUV color space. Here the U and V channels are plotted on the X and Y axis, while the Y channel, or luminance, varies with time. The gray areas correspond with YUV values that do not have a valid RGB conversion. This is a useful color space, as it separates the brightness or luminance from the rest of the color data. It is also easy to calculate, as it is a direct linear transform of the standard RGB color space. For this reason, it is used as standard in many image compression algorithms, such as JPEGs and digital video.
