Following its incorporation in , Technicolor developed a series of two-color processes as necessary steps toward full-color photography and printing. Two-strip Technicolor feature films like The Gulf Between , The Toll of the Sea , Wanderer of the Wasteland and The Black Pirate each showed tremendous promise in photography and color design, but implementation flaws resulted in technical problems and commercial failure. After a series of technical and financial stumbles during the early s, Technicolor rebounded with its new three-color process. The camera required an entirely new design, although it utilized many of the same principles already developed for two-color photography, such as a beam-splitting prism. The camera captured crisp, vibrant colors that were then recombined in printing. The Technicolor three-strip camera captured separate color records onto three strips of film.

Through connection with Walt Disney — , the three-strip Technicolor process that achieved worldwide fame was brought into being. In a process of "successive exposure," animated material was filmed three times through a red, a blue, and a green filter to produce three black-and-white records that were transposed onto three dyeable matrices. Important here was the use of panchromatic—rather than orthochromatic—black-and-white stock: this responded not only to blue and violet light but also to yellow and red light, thus making possible a fulsome and richly accurate record in black and white of the full range of color in a scene.
Becky Sharp went before the Technicolor cameras in December of The untimely death of its original director, Lowell Sherman, a month later, caused the picture to be restarted when Rouben Mamoulian took over the megaphone. Using Kodak panchromatic film which had an equivalent rating of approximately ASA 5 after the light passed through filters and beam splitters, photography required terrific amounts of light.
