Color changing effects with cross-halftone prints

We propose new methods for creating color varying prints with classical cyan, magenta, yellow inks on a metallic specularly reflecting or on a white diffusely reflecting substrate. We use a special cross-line halftone with optimized surface coverages of the inks to create cross-halftone prints whose colors change when rotating the print in-plane under specular reflection. These prints enable viewing at the same location a first image with a first set of colors and upon in-plane rotation of the print or displacement of the observer, a similar or a different image whose parts are colored with a different set of colors. Applications comprise counterfeit prevention, art, advertisement, decoration, exhibitions and surprising displays in amusement parks.
