When characterizing the color response for a curve-controlled device condition, if you output the ColorFlow chart in the Print Characterization mode in Prinergy, you must define device curves for the device.

Note: If you output the ColorFlow chart by selecting a print curve in the Process Template, you do not need to define device curves for the device. 

 For pooled devices, the device curve that you define for the device becomes device curves for all pooled devices in the device condition. 

  1. In a device condition, click the Device Curves icon .
  2. In the Device Curves Definition dialog box, in the Curve Origin area, select Preset.
  3. Select one of the following options:
  4. If the device condition is for the Flexographic Press device type, define bump and cutoff curve values.
  5. To deliver device curves from the current state, select the Use Current State for Approved Snapshot check box. This lets you adjust and use device curves to reflect a change in press behavior, without needing to capture and approve a snapshot for production output.
  6. To view the device curves you have defined, click View Curves.
  7. Click OK.
