Color Temperature

Color Temperature can be used, for example, to make the mood of a texture cooler or warmer.

Especially for hot or luminous objects, we often observe a color change that follows certain rules. There is a reason that the sun is yellow-white and a glowing iron is reddish. Color temperatures are normally measured in Kelvin (K) and denote the color of energy-saving light bulbs, for example.

The color temperature can be changed with the help of this Node. Since green and violet are not included in the typical color range of color temperatures, a separate Tint value can be used to add these colors.
