RE : Color Temperature


It may be possible to estimate the color temperature from the RGB Radiance channels by:
1) transforming the RGB values into xyz trilinear coordinates
2) using an approximate formula relating xyz to color temperature.
See for instance this paper:
McCamy, Calvin S. (April 1992). "Correlated color temperature as an explicit function of chromaticity coordinates". Color Research & Application 17 (2): 142-144

Hope this will help you.

My first post.... let's hope this works:

Is it possible for color temperature to be measured within Desktop Radiance?

The luminaire color temperature output can be adjusted, but can color
temperature be measured on the surface at a single point in Radiance?

Thank you,
