CoCo Multi Channel is an Adobe Photoshop Plug-in enabling selective color correction in the RGB, Lab, CMYK, and multichannel modes. CoCo is the smartest tool for dealing with standard jobs such as spot colors, bump plates, HiFi, or jobs which will not be printed on a white substrate. CoCo offers smooth and easy color corrections and provides a natural transition of colors while retaining the original modulation. It allows the user to correct up to 16 colors in one filter. The CoCo makes use of a revolutionary Ink Display Technology (IDT). IDT easily changes the color in which the channels of an image are displayed. For example, rather than print a CMYK, print magenta, yellow, black, and PANTONE 361. With the help of IDT, the cyan channel can be displayed in this color, resulting in a realistic visual impression of how the printed result will look.Not only can CoCo Multi Channel process RGB and CMYK, but duotones, tritones, or any extra channels created in Photoshop can be displayed in their printing colors. The display also shows the individual separations as well as the combination of separations. The
range function gives full control over the scope of colors to be corrected. The combination of selectivity and range function allows, for instance, the correction of red in an image without affecting the skin tones (and vice versa, of course). Primarily developed for and tested in a high-end prepress environment, CoCo brings high-end quality color corrections to the desktop. paper color function simulates what the image will look like when printed on a substrate other than white. IDT makes it possible to simulate both standard and special printing inks on the screen. This results in a very reliable soft proof of images within the limitations inherent to displaying printing ink on screen.CoCo works in a fundamentally different way than Photoshop. Colors are corrected in accordance to the relative distance to the source color. The range function keeps CoCo fully in control. CoCo offers a very smooth transition from corrected colors to colors which have not been corrected. The result: retention of light and shadow parts, and a natural change of color. CoCo gives a smoother result than Photoshop, especially when working in soft tones, such as flesh tones and the like.Features:• instantaneous preview;• previews spanning more than one screen;• preview zooming and panning;• three-dimensional GUI and docking palettes;• ColorSync support;• Lab-image-mode support;• mask support;• color-corrections panel list;• simultaneous and sequential corrections;• user-definable defaults for correction and ink sets;• user-definable range and default range;• improved performance;• undo support where appropriate;• selective-color correction without masking;• shows the effect of an unlimited number of simultaneous color corrections in the preview before rendering;• standard and special printing inks can be simulated, as well as the color of the paper;• spot colors and bump plates can be created and simulated; and• enables the user to correct HiFi and other multichannel images.Fixes addressed in v3.5.2:• loading channel sets;• loading correction scripts;• errant, small crashes; and• load option of correction scripts was initially disabled on MacOS 9.Manufacturer: Aurelon Software
