Sign in. Following its incorporation in , Technicolor developed a series of two-color processes as necessary steps toward full-color photography and printing. The feature films The Gulf Between , The Toll of the Sea , Wanderer of the Wasteland , and The Black Pirate each showed tremendous promise in photography and color design, but implementation flaws resulted in technical problems and commercial failure. After a series of technical and financial stumbles during the early s, Technicolor rebounded with its new three-color process.

The illusion of motion pictures is based on the optical phenomena known as persistence of vision and the phi phenomenon. The first of these causes the brain to retain images cast upon the retina of the eye for a fraction of a second beyond their disappearance from the field of sight, while the latter creates apparent movement between images when they succeed one another rapidly. Together these phenomena permit the succession of still frames on a motion-picture film strip to represent continuous movement when projected at the proper speed traditionally 16 frames per second for silent films and 24 frames per second for sound films.
