It starts with a collection of colors taken straight from the outdoors and photographed in carefully controlled lighting. A mathematical algorithm takes the colors and writes organically-shaped pixels using the specific color information. The resulting pattern, while still digital is far more organic in appearance than other digital patterns because A-TACS® Camo replaces the unnatural angled pixels with organic pixels. The organic pixels are then digitally modified to create real world elements without subscribing to the traditional limb and leaf mimicking patterns. The end results are patterns that eliminate the human outline from as close as a few feet and minimizing the blobbing effect when viewed from a distance.
