open any 4 to 10 colors or CMYK ICC Real Press profile in ICC_Profile_Convertor
main menu, and the press the " Create and save "
button in order ICC_Profile_Convertor computes the CGATS text
characterization file of the equivalent Virtual RGB N-Colors press.
this Virtual RGB press CGATS characterization file with the profiling
software that has created your original N-Colors press ICC profile,
ensures that not only you will get exactly the same color gamut, but
also the gamut mapping algorithms used for computing all the
Rendering Intents of your original N-Colors and equivalent RGB ICC
Profile will be the same. So that both your original N-Colors profile
and equivalent RGB profile will behave exactly the same way when making
your RGB or N-Colors separations, or when soft proofing or hard proofing
your images to be printed on the real press.
course, soft proofing the Virtual RGB Press output, by using the virtual
press RGB ICC profile, makes all prepress operations quite accurate,
easy, and fast: You can produce Virtual press RGB color separations, and
the according RGB PDF documents.
can hard proof your RGB PDF on any color printer or color proofer, by
using the Virtual RGB Press ICC profile as the source profile, and the
printer profile as the destination profile.
at the end of your production process, your RGB PDF should be converted
(Using Relative Rendering Intent: NO COLOR CHANGE), into N color separations for your N-Colors press. Of course, you can use
Absolute Rendering Intent as well, because the paper tint is the same in
both Real and Virtual N-Colors press ICC profiles.
