CMYKColor

CMYKColor
is a graphics directive which specifies that graphical objects which follow are to be displayed in the color given.
CMYKColor
specifies opacity a.
  • Color and opacity levels outside the range 0 to 1 will be clipped. »
  • CMYKColor can be used to specify colors for color printing.
  • CMYKColor specifications are automatically converted to RGBColor when simulated lighting calculations are done. »

Use diffuse surface color:
Use diffuse and specular surface color:
Use glow color, setting the diffuse surface color to black:
Use Blend to mix two or more colors:
Use Lighter and Darker to mix with white and black respectively:
CMYKColor is equivalent to CMYKColor:
Use Opacity with CMYKColor:
Use the opacity argument in CMYKColor directly:
CMYKColor is related to RGBColor in the following way:
For economy of printing black is usually separated out:
By using the same parameters in CMYKColor and RGBColor you get complementary colors:
CMY values are complementary to RGB values:
Values outside of the 0, 1 range will be clipped:
In plot functions, use ColorFunctionScaling to control global scaling of variables:
