Brian C Cooper, Robert Gonsalves, Robert Alan Paoni: Secondary color modification of a digital image. Avid Technology, Peter J Gordon, November 5, 2002: US06477271 (28 worldwide citation)

An ellipsoid chroma region of a chroma plane may be defined to specify a range of chromas for which a secondary chroma modification is to be applied, and to determine an output chroma for each chroma of the chroma plane based on the ellipsoid chroma region. Further, two or more different-shaped chro ...

Robert Gonsalves: Method and apparatus for color manipulation. Avid Technology, Peter J Gordon, February 26, 2002: US06351557 (27 worldwide citation)

Recoloring an object may be performed by calculating an offset in the hue, saturation and luminance between the source and destination colors. The source image is then adjusted using these offsets to produce the desired color.

Robert Gonsalves, Michael D Laird: Natural color matching in a video editing system. Avid Technology, Peter J Gordon, January 25, 2005: US06847373 (17 worldwide citation)

Colors in an image that are selected as a source color can be matched to a selected destination color such that the modification to the image appears natural. Components of a selected destination color having a first luminance and components of a source color having a second luminance are received. ...
