Hi all

Is there a pre-built rendering intent written into the Fiery software for CMYK to CMYK that cannot be changed (Rel Col I assume)? Looking at the workflow it seems the rendering intent settings are only for RGB to CMYK in the workflow.

Or does that rendering intent option for for both types of separations?

Thanks

You are correct, the CMYK rendering intent uses the RC table in the profile. This makes sense because there are rarely cases of CMYK source data with a wide enough gamut that Perceptual would be required. We do provide some mapping options. Full Output GCR is receomended and gives the best colorimetry.

I you did have a need for saturation rendering, choose Pure Primaries (called "quick" on older Fiery Servers) but this will not give the best colorimetric precision.
