OptisWorksregistered commercial software add-on for SolidWorksregistered was used to simulate the effect of different colored filters on the appearance of colored stimuli. The Macbeth ColorCheckerregistered was modeled as a reflective source and both reflective and emissive sources were modeled in a partial 3-D model of the F-16 cockpit. Bitmap images of the color checker and cockpit were manipulated in OptisWorksregistered and elements assigned spectral properties. Colored filters were created from real transmission spectra and interposed within the light path. The results before and after filtering were displayed on a calibrated computer monitor and measured. The calculated and measured chromaticity values were determined to be in close agreement.
