  • This tutorial shows the simple operation of the i1i0 table using Chromachecker Capture software. The control strip consists of 18 spot colors and the G7 patches to iterate a G7 curve directly out of Capture. This creates a simple and automated process for operators to perform a quality check on G7, process colors and spot colors.
