You would like to see how the defined separation control curves
would treat your document? – Click on the 1:1
Optionally you can define a lower resolution here. Now select the
C M Y K (4 frames), Greyscale
icon and start the conversion.
You now get four new frames with greyscale images. (From the frame
names you can find out in the Frame editing module which frame
represents which colour. The frame's name will be prefixed with a
process colour character. For example, TEST.TIF becomes
in the cyan separation.)
If you select the C M Y K (4 frames), Monochrome" icon you
will get directly the same data that would land on a separation film.
Define the required imagesetter resolution, e.g. 1,270 dpi. Of course
you will have to set or load a matching raster definition in the
Raster generator. (Do not forget to set the colour separation curves.)
Now start the conversion by clicking on
Convert to, which
brings up a dialog that asks you how you want to convert the raster
graphic; choose the
Rasterized bitmap graphic radio button.
If you are satisfied with the result, you can fix the separation,
32 bit as the colour depth. With colour image files
this will not waste memory, as Calamus always uses the same amount of
RAM for 24 bit and 32 bit images.
You can make the separation test with all Calamus objects. But you should only fix image frames.
