colour.characterisation.best_illuminant

colour.characterisation.best_illuminant(RGB_w, sensitivities, illuminants)[source]

Select the best illuminant for given RGB white balance multipliers, and sensitivities in given series of illuminants.

Parameters
  • RGB_w (array_like) – RGB white balance multipliers.

  • sensitivities (RGB_CameraSensitivities) – Camera RGB spectral sensitivities.

  • illuminants (SpectralDistribution) – Illuminant spectral distributions to choose the best illuminant from.

Returns

Best illuminant.

Return type

SpectralDistribution
