Colour film wasn’t invented until 1940 and the Supermarine S6 won the Schneider Trophy contests in 1929 and 1931. So, no colour film exists of this aircraft. You may have seen Second World War films cleverly re-mastered from Black and White into colour but how do they colour old black-and-white movies? The process is known as film colorisation. Where old black-and-white movies are first converted into a digital format and then, with the help of computer software, individual objects are colorised one frame at a time. Here we have employed a similar visual effect of our 3D animation.
Applying a vintage photographic effect typical of an image of the period.
