    open profilemaker5 testcharts in color toolbox?

    Hi, I'm testing color toolbox 10, and can't open my profilemaker5 i1iO reference files for measuring.

    When opening reference file I get error:

    The normative identifier is missing in the first row.
    Normative "Originator" missing.
    Normative "Descriptor" missing.

    Could not read normative test chart data from this file.

    When opening measurement file done in profilemaker I get error:

    The normative identifier is missing in the first row.
    Normative "Originator" missing.
    Normative "Descriptor" missing.

    The Desnsity data has been recalculated to match the density status in the preferences

    Could not read reasonable media white from this file

    Are you sure that Color Toolbox even supports CGATS/PMP native measurement or reference files? I doubt it does, with the errors it is throwing up. The RGB file you showed me is some sort of linearizing chart as there are very few RGB values, something like 0, 30, 50, 80, 100 and just variations on those. Absolutely no other numbers used so cannot be a profiling target chart. Of course, the CMYK file was an ordinary IT8.7/3 and nothing unusual there.

    Why do you want to open a PMP reference file inside Color Toolbox anyway? It is probably a much better idea to simply create a brand-new reference file and target chart inside Color Toolbox as 99% of profiling apps will build a higher quality or more accurate profile when built from a target created within the app, rather than a target from some other profile creation software.

    But I'd say best thing to do would be find out if Color Toolbox supports PMP files natively as that might be the problem there?

    Use PatchTool for normalizing the PM data and save in CGATS5.
