Film Language Tag: saturation
The purity, brilliance, or vividness of a color's hue; in the Munsell color system, the degree of difference between a color and a shade of gray with the same level of lightness or brightness.
Three-strip Technicolor films, such as Gone with the Wind (1939), have very rich, saturated colors. The Three Amigos (1986) spoofed the highly saturated look of three-strip Technicolor during its desert campfire musical number. At the opposite end of the spectrum are films such as Saving Private Ryan (1998) that have intentionally desaturated colors, verging on the monochromatic at times. The color control on a television adjusts the display's color saturation, though apparent color saturation can also be affected by the signal's luminance level. On a vectorscope, color saturation is represented by the signal's distance from the display center line.
