Enter values for an Xyz to convert it to Cmy, or vice versa.
Xyz is an additive color space based on how the eye intereprets stimulus from light. Unlike other additive rgb like Rgb, Xyz is a purely mathmatical space and the primary components are "imaginary", meaning you can't create the represented color in the physical by shining any sort of lights representing x, y, and z. It's complicated to explain in a nutshell, so read more about it here:
Cmy is frequenty associated with color printing, and it's determined by the relation of colors cyan, magenta and yellow. Unlike Rgb, cmy is subtractive, meaning that higher values are associated with darker colors rather than light.
If you're into color, color theory or design you should definitely check out the award winning Nix Color Sensor. It really is a game changing tool!
All calculations were doing using the open source ColorMine library.
The code used for the Xyz and Cmy conversions can be found on Github:
var xyz = new Xyz();
var cmy = xyz.To<Cmy>();
Color conversions performed using the open source ColorMine library.
