Lenticular color


Additive system of colour photography which made use of a black and white film stock, the base of which was embossed with a very large number of minute lenses or cylindrical ribs. When exposed through the base using a camera lens fitted with a banded three-colour filter, the image was recorded as a number of colour separation elements which, after a reversal processing, could be projected through a similar lens and filter to produce the original colours.
