The background simulation (A.K.A white point simulation) when making a contract proof is typically not accurate at the first attempt. This KB describes a way to improve the simulation.
Software requirements: Color Pilot 16.1.1 or higher / Pack Proof 16.0 or higher
Modifying the white point of a press profile will recalculate ALL colors (also the solid colors)! As a consequence, you will lose some color accuracy (depends on the modification size).
All values should be "0".
Click Next and define the variations.
If the background simulation is too dark, go for 0 up steps.If the simulation is too light, you have to go for 0 down steps!
