I'm using my Z3200 with Color Center to measure a 1728 color patch
and wondering if there anyway to output the measurement or convert it into something that ProfileMaker 5 could read

Under the option, I can export it direct to something call .csv and CGATS format with serveral option i could check:

SAVE AS CGATS MEASUREMENTS FILE
-include original cmyk/rgb and sample_ID values
-include spectral measurements: use 5/10/20 nm spectral bands (interpolated)
-include CIE XYZ measurements (2nd Observer)
-include CIE Lab measurements (D50 illuminant)
-Include Status E density measurements

SAVE AS MONACO PROFILER MEASUREMENTS FILE


So which option I should pick?
or is there any way to convwert the Monaco Profiler Measurements file into something that ProfileMaker could read?

Thanks
Aaron

Not really. It says "Error in file format. (Error 20203)"

I've listed all the options I can check/uncheck before I make the measurement
Should I just check all of them or just some of them?

No experience with what you are calling “Color Center”. With ColorPort from X-Rite, you are given similar options and CGATs saved doc’s open in ProfileMaker Pro. You may need to download the free ColorPort form X-Rite and measure using that product. Or see in a text editor how Color Center is saving that CGATs and compare it to one ColorPort saves.

There is a way to convert a PROFILER session file to CGATs.
    • Set up a testchart in ColorPort to match your original reference data, ink limiting, scrambling/non-scrambling, etc. If you don't have that information recorded, you can open the session in PROFILER and find your settings on the Patch Options page.
      Populate a fake measurement in Colorport (option + click on Measurement Status under the Measure Target tab.)
      Save this data as a CGATS file.
      Open the CGATS file in Excel. Remove all the spectral data. Copy the L*a*b*values from your Monaco session, and save them into the the respective columns on the CGATS file. Save this file out as a .txt file.
      Then, drag and drop, or load this CGATS file normally.

What should be my file extension? .csv?
just want to make sure because i'm running out of paper

Thanks Andrew!
