View Full Version : Colorflow and 1-bit tiff workflow

I'm not really sure what I'm asking and I'm not sure which of our Kodak sales techs to ask this so I'll just start here.

I'm completely unfamiliar with the 1-bit Tiff workflow that becomes mandatory with Win2008 server. I'm assuming that Prinergy outputs a 1-bit tiff file that can be either proofed or plated. Does this physical file already have the Colorflow adjustments made to it?

I ask because a company we work with recently upgraded to Prinergy 5 and told us that if we upgrade to Win2008 then we could just give them the 1-bit Tiffs to plate should our trendsetter break. But they don't have Colorflow.

We apply a calibration curve and a dot gain curve during the creation of one-bit tiffs but we are still using Harmony. You can use ColorFlow to do it though.

We use Colorflow with a 1-bit tiff workflow for plate output. All curve information is applied to the 1-bit tiff during creation.
