Composite Components proprietary Digital Blue™ paint is specially formulated to have the optimal color density, reflectivity and saturation for the cleanest possible composite. CCC paints have been Hollywood’s choice for twenty years, our materials have been used in productions like Life of Pi, Lucy and The Amazing Spiderman. Professional effects supervisors choose Composite Components because of our precise formula of dyes and pigments which yield the optimal color value for the cleanest possible composite. This patented Digital Blue™ color value blocks the reflection of red and green light, yielding a luminant and extremely pure blue that can be digitally extracted with cleaner edges and less foreground color distortion. In 1996 The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded us their Scientific and Engineering Academy Award for the developing the digital series of traveling matte backings, i.e. Digital Green® and Digital Blue™. CCC paint can drastically cut the time and expense of rotoscoping and color correcting the poor composites that result from with using low quality paint.
ESTIMATING PAINT COVERAGE: Coverage obtained from any paint is highly dependent upon surfaces to be painted, preparation of the surface, and painting techniques used by the paint crew. For purposes of budgeting, we believe that you can assume one gallon of our traveling matte paint will cover 200 square feet of properly prepared surface (cyc wall or muslin sealed with a standard white primer). One gallon of paint to 150 square feet should give two coats (on average) of coverage. Download the Digital Paint Label Instructions
