colour.uv_to_Luv

colour.uv_to_Luv(uv, illuminant=array([0.3127, 0.329]), Y=1)[source]

Returns the CIE L*u*v* colourspace array from given \(uv^p\) chromaticity coordinates by extending the array last dimension with given \(L\) Lightness.

Parameters
  • uv (array_like) – \(uv^p\) chromaticity coordinates.

  • illuminant (array_like, optional) – Reference illuminant CIE xy chromaticity coordinates or CIE xyY colourspace array.

  • Y (numeric, optional) – Optional \(Y\) luminance value used to construct the intermediate CIE XYZ colourspace array, the default \(Y\) luminance value is 1.

Returns

CIE L*u*v* colourspace array.
