Color Depth

The first thing to understand about color in Director is color depth. Color depth, sometimes called bit depth, relates to the number of colors that a computer can display at the same time. The maximum number of colors is governed by how much room (in bits) a computer has to store information about each dot, or pixel, on the screen (Table 9.1). The more bits of color data the computer stores for each pixel, the more colors the computer can display (Figure 9.3).

Figure 9.3. This series of images suggests how the color depth affects the appearance of a cast member. Try it yourself and see the results in color.
