Additive Color Systems

Additive color systems use black and white film records of the color elements which are projected through the appropriate color filters. In some cases, the color filter is applied to the film itself. All additive systems suffer from reduced light transmission to the screen caused by the color filter. The first Technicolor process was an additive system. Technicolor will be treated in a separate section.
