    ISO 12647 compliant PDF files

    Is anyone aware a software application or preflight preference that will produce ISO 12647 compliant PDF files? I know Alwan PDF Standardiser is available but I can only find Mac versions and PC is the platform I use.

    Many Thanks...

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, I think there isn't any ISO 12647 compliant PDF files because ISO 12647 is the standard for printing and digital proof but not PDF.

    PDF/X files are described by the ISO 15930 norms.

    PDF/X1-a = ISO15930-1 for instance

    However, the output intent required by a PDF/X files should be compliant with ISO12647 (ICC profiles such as: IsoCoated v2, PSO UnCoated, etc.)

    So... you must use a PDF/X file (ISO15930) prepared for ISO12647 color rendering...

    Hope that helps

    Tony is right.
    Choose the PDF/X1-a or PDF/X3 preset when you are exporting from your favourite app and make sure you have set up the correct profiles in the color management preferences.

    Ok, but keep in mind that all PDF/X files, whatever the flavor (x1a, X4, etc.) are driven by the output intent.

    Therefore, there is no special concern in PDF/X1a for color management, everything is in DeviceCMYK (color defined by the output intent). However, PDF/X3 (4) requires to pay attention about your color management policy (embedded all ICC profiles, etc.)

    Last but not least, if you plan to keep your live transparency, you cannot make your PDF via Distiller (PostScript)... If you do so, you will still get your PDF/X... but flatten!

    Hope that helps.

    Re: 12647

    You must have output values for generating 12647 PDF file; i mean is no "automatic" method, you must print some test chart to know how your printers work, so you can input values in your software workflow
