Re: filmscanners: which space?



Firstly, if the results were as per your example I would look for a new
RGB-CMYK and/or CMYK-RGB conversion profile.  Even visually the colors are
different.

If, however, such a result should be, then the 16 points are 6% of the total
gamut which is sufficient to adjust the green - I can't fathom wanting to
change it more than that.  And I can adjust B or R as well to compensate for
the G.

The point is that yes, there will be damage and loss without question but,
at least for me, there are times when the benefits of being able to adjust
in CMYK outweigh these damages.

| The complexity comes in when you add translation into another device.
|
| Lets say your original RGB values were 128,64,168, then after mapping
| through CYMK and back to RGB you now have 138,16, 186 (I'm making these
| numbers up, but they're somewhat believable.  Now you want to print to a

print
| a test print and low and behold its too green.  You only have 16 levels of
| green left to futz with.
