ColorSeparateCommand Class

Separates an image by color plane to produce one grayscale image per plane. You can specify any of several color-space models, including CMYK.
public class ColorSeparateCommand : RasterCommand 
Public Class ColorSeparateCommand  
   Inherits RasterCommand 
@interface LTColorSeparateCommand : LTRasterCommand 
public class ColorSeparateCommand extends RasterCommand 
public ref class ColorSeparateCommand : public RasterCommand   
  • The supported color-space models are Rgb, Cmyk, Cmy, Hsv, Hls, Xyz, Ycrcb, Yuv, Lab and Sct.
  • The pointers in the array should be in the appropriate order, which in most cases is the order of the letters in the name. For example, for CMY separation, the first pointer should be for the cyan plane, the second for magenta, and the third for yellow. The only exception is RGB, which should be in BGR (blue, green, red) order.
  • This class supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale and 48 and 64-bit color images is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This class does not support signed data images.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
