We show how highly chromatic Multi-Twist Retarder (MTR) films can be used to create a single-film color filter wherein the color may be selected only by the MTR orientation angle. By this approach, we can create multi- color images with just an MTR between polarizers. We study the design method and limits of the available color gamut possibilities in this approach, and experimentally demonstrate several designs of continuous and discrete patterns. This technique may be useful in art, displays, microscopy, and remote sensing.
