New features and enhancements

Undo/Redo functions for Print Calibration curves (CLRFLW-7442) 

The ColorFlow 8.2.0 software introduces an Undo/Redo function for Print Calibration curves for enhanced usability. Either while the Device Curves Edit dialog is open, or after it has been closed, you can select Undo or Redo from the Edit menu (or use Ctrl/Cmd-Z or Ctrl/Cmd-Y).  

Measure and report response using TC1617x charts (CLRFLW-5967) 

G7 and color setup experts can now characterize the response of their presses with the extended TC1617x charts published by IDEAlliance.

The TC1617 is a new characterization target developed by Idealliance which contains all the CMYK patch values of the IT8.7/4 (with duplicates removed) plus all the CMY and K-only values of columns 4 and 5 of the P2P51. Idealliance has released final versions of three charts: one for i1iO measurement, and two for i1iSis measurement. 

ColorFlow clients now have these three additional built-in charts for G7 support, each of which can be exported as a PDF file:

  • TC1617x (i1iO) cf
    This chart can be measured by i1iO and i1iO2 only, scanning for any measurement conditions supported by the connected i1iO.
  • TC1617x_H (i1iSis) cf
    This chart (as well as the TC1617xV cf chart) can be measured by i1iSis and i1iSis2 only, with any measurement conditions supported by the connected i1iSis.
  • TC1617x_V (i1iSis) cf

Activation of any of the above measurements produces a Full Color and Tonal response for process inks, and measurements of any chart can be exported.

In a report generated by any of these measurements, CIELAB measurements reported for the device or verified output are same values that appear in exported measurements.

Comparison Reports: clarify final entry of Figure 4.2.1 (CLRFLW-6327)

Comparison reports are useful for identifying problem color builds or for determining the accuracy of a color reproduction. They illustrate the differences between a device and a selected target. The final entry of Figure 4.2.1 (CIELAB color of critical tints) displays the tint that has the largest error. Because this was not documented, this final entry could be interpreted as a random color that was erroneously included in the report. ColorFlow 8.2.0 now includes this explanation below the table of Figure 4.2.1: "The last table row above shows the maximum single color difference among all patches."

Japan Color 2011 Support (CLRFLW-6611)

ColorFlow provides several built-in CMYK reference device conditions that encapsulate the color response of industry specifications or printing aim points. ColorFlow 8.2.0 now supports a Japan Color 2011 built-in CMYK Reference device condition.

The Japan Color 2011 device condition has Full Color and Tonal response, and therefore:

  • Can serve as a calibration or simulation target for Gray Balance or Tonal Match curves
  • Has full device profile and DeviceLink generation capabilities
  • Provides colorimetric and tonal response information, but no density or trap information, when used as a comparison reference in a Print Comparison report

Support new PDF/X Output Intents published in registry (CLRFLW-6614)

ColorFlow 8.2.0 now supports these profiles as built-in PDF/X Output Intents:

  • CGATS21_CRPC1.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC2.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC3.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC4.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC5.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC6.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC7.icc
  • Coated_Fogra39L_VIGC_260.icc
  • Coated_Fogra39L_VIGC_300.icc
  • GRACoL2013_CRPC6.icc

  • SWOP2013C3_CPRC5.icc
  • Uncoated_Fogra47L_VIGC_260.icc
  • Uncoated_Fogra47L_VIGC_300.icc

Print Calibration Curve usability improvements (CLRFLW- 6807)

To clarify the user interface terminology used when calibrating presses for G7, the word "conversion" has been replaced by "calibration" for icons, dialog boxes, radio buttons, reports, and so on. In addition, the Conversion icon has been replaced by the same curve icon used for device curves, with its tooltip changed to "Calibration". 

Ink Optimizing Simulation DeviceLink for G7 PCO (CLRFLW-7039)

The ColorFlow 8.2.0 software introduces an Ink Optimizing deviceLink with G7 calibration that helps save ink and improve color stability with G7 printing.

Increase ColorFlow Server default logging levels (CLRFLW-7264)

The ColorFlow Server's default logging level is now ALL, so that the Kodak support organization can gather as much information as possible when a customer reports an intermittent or transient problem with Prinergy-ColorFlow integration, thereby reducing the time to resolve issues.

Client support for macOS High Sierra (CLRFLW-7636)

The ColorFlow Mac client now works with macOS High Sierra so that ColorFlow can run on new and upgraded Macs.

Support for ISO 12647-2:2013 FOGRA 51 and 52 (CLRFLW-7581)

Include Tonal response in some FOGRA built-in device conditions (CLRFLW-7582)

Color store migration: remove unused records from all tables (CLRFLW-7598)

With ColorFlow 8.2.0, the process of migrating the color store now detects and removes records that are no longer used, speeding up the capture and snapshot for a customer's color store.

Sort contents of Prinergy list controls (CLRFLW-7622)

Lists of curves, color setups, and other objects delivered to ColorFlow Server commands are now sorted alphabetically.

PDF Help updated to version 8.2 (CLRFLW-7670)

印刷校准曲线 (CLRFLW-7442) 的撤消/恢复功能 

ColorFlow 8.2.0 软件引入了撤消/恢复功能,用于印刷校准曲线,增强易用性。无论是在设备曲线编辑对话框打开时,或在此对话框关闭后,您都可以从编辑菜单(或使用 Ctrl/Cmd-Z 或 Ctrl/Cmd-Y)中选择撤销恢复  

测量和报告响应使用 TC1617x 图表 (CLRFLW-5967) 

G7 和颜色设置专家现在可以通过 IDEAlliance 推出的扩展 TC1617x 图表描述其印刷响应。

TC1617 是由 Idealliance 开发的全新描述目标,其包含所有 IT8.7/4(已删除重复部分)的 CMYK 色块值以及 P2P51 图表中第 4 和 5 列的 CMY 值和仅 K 值。Idealliance 已发行三个图表的最终版:一个用于 i1iO 测量,另外两个用于 i1iSis 测量。 

ColorFlow 客户端现具有 G7 支持的三个额外内置图表,每一个都可以导出为 PDF 文件:

  • TC1617x (i1iO) cf
    此图表仅可以通过 i1iO 和 i1iO2 测量,连接的 i1iO 支持任何测量条件的扫描。
  • TC1617x_H (i1iSis) cf
    此图表(以及 TC1617xV cf 图表)仅可以通过 i1iSis 和 i1iSis2 测量,连接的 i1iSis 支持任何测量条件。
  • TC1617x_V (i1iSis) cf


在一份上述任何测量结果生成的报告中,该设备或验证的输出的报告的 CIELAB 测量结果在导出的测量结果里是相同的。

对比报告:阐述图 4.2.1 的最终条目 (CLRFLW-6327)

比较报告对于识别有问题的颜色搭配或判断颜色再现的准确性很有用。他们说明了设备与所选目标之间的差异。图 4.2.1 的最终条目(重要色调的 CIELAB 颜色)显示具有最大错误的色调。由于未被记录,该最终条目可以解释为随机颜色,被错误地随附在报告中。ColorFlow 8.2.0 现囊括了图 4.2.1 的说明,参见下文:“表格最后一行显示所有色块中最大的单个色差。”

Japan Color 2011 Support (CLRFLW-6611)

ColorFlow 提供多种内置 CMYK 参考设备条件,可概括行业规范或印刷目标点的颜色响应。ColorFlow 8.2.0 现在支持内置 CMYK 参考设备条件 Japan Color 2011。

Japan Color 2011 设备条件具有全色和色调响应,因此:

  • 可以作为灰色平衡或色调匹配曲线的一个校准或模拟目标
  • 具有完整的设备配置文件和 DeviceLink 生成功能
  • 当用作印刷对比报告中的比较参数时,可提供色度和色调响应信息,但没有密度或陷阱信息

支持新的 PDF/X 输出意向,该意向发布在 注册表中 (CLRFLW-6614)

ColorFlow 8.2.0 现支持这些配置文件作为内置 PDF/X 输出意向:

  • CGATS21_CRPC1.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC2.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC3.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC4.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC5.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC6.icc
  • CGATS21_CRPC7.icc
  • Coated_Fogra39L_VIGC_260.icc
  • Coated_Fogra39L_VIGC_300.icc
  • GRACoL2013_CRPC6.icc
  • GRACoL2013UNC_CRPC3.icc
  • JapanColor2011Coated.icc
  • SNAP 2007.icc
  • SWOP2013C3_CPRC5.icc
  • Uncoated_Fogra47L_VIGC_260.icc
  • Uncoated_Fogra47L_VIGC_300.icc

印刷校准曲线的易用性改进 (CLRFLW- 6807)

在校准 G7 印刷时,如需阐明使用的用户界面术语,将“转换”替换为“校准”的图标、对话框、单选按钮、报告等。此外,转换图标已替换为相同的用于设备曲线的曲线图标,其工具提示改为“校准”。 

G7 PCO 的油墨优化模拟 DeviceLink (CLRFLW-7039)

ColorFlow 8.2.0 软件引入油墨优化 DeviceLink 与 G7 校准,可帮助节省墨水和改善 G7 印刷的颜色稳定性。

增加 ColorFlow 服务器的默认登录级别 (CLRFLW-7264)

ColorFlow 服务器的默认登录级别现为“全部”,以便柯达在客户通过 Prinergy-ColorFlow 集成报告间歇性或瞬态问题时,为组织收集尽可能多的信息提供支持,从而尽快解决问题。

客户端支持 macOS High Sierra (CLRFLW-7636)

ColorFlow Mac 客户端现可兼容 macOS High Sierra,以便 ColorFlow 可以在全新升级的 Mac 上运行。

支持 ISO 12647-2:2013 FOGRA 51 和 52 (CLRFLW-7581)

包括某些 FOGRA 内置设备条件的色调响应 (CLRFLW-7582)

颜色库迁移:从所有表格中删除未使用的记录 (CLRFLW-7598)

借助 ColorFlow 8.2.0,迁移颜色库的过程现可检测和删除不再使用的记录、加速捕获以及截图客户的颜色库。

印能捷列表配许内容控件 (CLRFLW-7622)

提交至 ColorFlow 服务器的曲线列表、颜色设置和其他对象的命令现已按字母顺序排序。
