Physical Mode: This is the default set of controls providing a realistic result based on natural hair color and response. Combined with Dye, users can create any plausible result. This expects color input to be sRGB color space.

Artistic Mode: This mode replaces the Melanin controls with Color options. While this can produce unrealistic results, it allows for greater art directed freedom.
