To apply multiple dot gain curves in a job, you can create a curve strategy (.ICPRO file).
A curve strategy is created in Curve Pilot as a combination of various single curves.
In the strategy you can specify that a different curve has to be applied for a certain ink (C, M, Y, K, spot color), line work, images or based on certain screen settings (lpi, dot shape and angle). You can also specify a combination of these criteria.
To learn how to create a curve strategy with Curve Pilot, we have prepared an e-learning module.
The modules will explain:
How to create a new curve strategy
Which criteria can be used
How to use a combination of the criteria
