    You will need to get your hands on a transmission densitometer. You can search for an X-Rite 341T or 361T, Tobias, or others on ebay.

    The RTI RIP is a Harlequin RIP, so you should be able to find a manual pretty easily. rti-rips.com may be a good place to start. They also offer good phone support in English.

    Basically you have to:
    1. Get the exposure set correctly (optimum film density varies by manufacturer, but 4.0 is a good place to start if you can't find any info from mfg). Choose "print exposure sweep" from "output" menu to find proper exposure setting using densitometer.

    2. Linearize film. Select "Print uncalibrated target" from the "Output menu". Measure patches with densitometer and write values on film with Sharpie. With this information you can create a media calibration curve, then apply to your page steup.

    3. Create a compensation curve if desired to open or close tonal areas, or adjust for a printing standard.

    Sorry to say this is only a very breid description of what has to be done... may not be a bad idea to find an older industry person in the area that can offer some hands on assistance.

    no. we enlarge that film to 4 or 5 feet according to our size. then we make four color cmyk blocks then we print on sinthatic paper.

    Got it. A good tool to calibrate for the printing process would be Chromix Curve2 software, combined with a spectrophotometer. You print a P2P target that can be downloaded from the IDEAlliance website, measure it with the spectro, and import the values into Curve. Curve will generate values that you can use to generate a press curve in the RIP.

    Curve tool doesn't connect to spectrophotometer, but you can use measuring software related to your device such as ColorPort or MeasureTool, then export as a CGATS text file that you import into Curve.

    Hi willie0869,

    if i get the values from curve2 software then no need to caliberate fuzifilm katana LD-M1060. still i need to caliberate fuzifilm also.

    Hi Vikk,

    The first step was to calibrate the film using the transmission densitometer. This step is to linearize the film only. You're correct that you could possibly skip this step and go with a single calibration curve. The key would be to output a calibration strip, and using a loupe make sure that the highest areas (98%, 99%) are not solid, and the lowest areas (1%, 2%) are not blown out. For me personally, I would never go down this road without first linearizing the film...

    The values you get from Curve 2 will be applied as a press curve in the RIP. in your page setup, you will actually have two calibration curves. A media curve for the film, and a press curve for the final product.

    Cheers
