ColorSpace.Connector

public static class ColorSpace.Connector
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.graphics.ColorSpace.Connector


A connector transforms colors from a source color space to a destination color space.

A source color space is connected to a destination color space using the color transform \(C\) computed from their respective transforms noted \(T_{src}\) and \(T_{dst}\) in the following equation:

$$C = T^{-1}_{dst} . T_{src}$$

The transform \(C\) shown above is only valid when the source and destination color spaces have the same profile connection space (PCS). We know that instances of ColorSpace always use CIE XYZ as their PCS but their white points might differ. When they do, we must perform a chromatic adaptation of the color spaces' transforms. To do so, we use the von Kries method described in the documentation of ColorSpace.Adaptation, using the CIE standard illuminant D50 as the target white point.

Example of conversion from sRGB to DCI-P3:

 ColorSpace.Connector connector = ColorSpace.connect(
         ColorSpace.get(ColorSpace.Named.SRGB),
         ColorSpace.get(ColorSpace.Named.DCI_P3));
 float[] p3 = connector.transform(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f);
 // p3 contains { 0.9473, 0.2740, 0.2076 }
 

This method is safe to call from any thread.

Summary

Public methods

Public methods

getDestination

added in API level 26
public ColorSpace getDestination ()

Returns the destination color space this connector will convert to.

Returns
ColorSpace A non-null instance of ColorSpace

getRenderIntent

added in API level 26
public ColorSpace.RenderIntent getRenderIntent ()

Returns the render intent this connector will use when mapping the source color space to the destination color space.

Returns
ColorSpace.RenderIntent A non-null ColorSpace.RenderIntent

getSource

added in API level 26
public ColorSpace getSource ()

Returns the source color space this connector will convert from.

Returns
ColorSpace A non-null instance of ColorSpace

transform

added in API level 26
public float[] transform (float[] v)

Transforms the specified color from the source color space to a color in the destination color space.

Parameters
v float: A non-null array of 3 floats containing the value to transform and that will hold the result of the transform

Returns
float[] The v array passed as a parameter, containing the specified color transformed from the source space to the destination space

This value will never be null.

transform

added in API level 26
public float[] transform (float r, 
                float g, 
                float b)

Transforms the specified color from the source color space to a color in the destination color space. This convenience method assumes a source color model with 3 components (typically RGB). To transform from color models with more than 3 components, such as CMYK, use transform(float[]) instead.

Parameters
r float: The red component of the color to transform

g float: The green component of the color to transform

b float: The blue component of the color to transform

Returns
float[] A new array of 3 floats containing the specified color transformed from the source space to the destination space

This value will never be null.
