Lenticular colour film is an early colour motion picture technology based on coding colour information as spatial intensity patterns and recording these in a panchromatic emulsion. Conventional restoration of such film relies on playback requiring special optical equipment, in particular a colour filter identical to the one used for recording. We have developed a digital colour reconstruction procedure employing a modern high-resolution film scanner and image-processing software. This approach is very flexible, with respect to both the particular type of lenticular colour film and the degree of restoration.
