Only dot gain curves created with Esko Curve Pilot (.DGC and .ICPRO files) can be used in Automation Engine. This means that also the new Imaging Engine can only use curves created by Curve Pilot.

To learn how to create a dot gain curve with Curve Pilot, we prepared an e-learning module.

This module will explain:

  • How to create a single dot gain curve
  • How to create a reference curve
  • How to apply a reference curve
