GrayscaleConversion node tag definitions

A formal description of all available tags in the XML job ticket GrayscaleConversion node. If the default value for a tag is “channel value”, this means that if the tag is not in the jobticket, the value is taken from the channel that processes the jobticket. If the tag is in the jobticket, the value of it overwrites the channel setting. Note that “BWProfile” and “BWProfileActive” are in the Output node.


Apply (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

if true, a conversion to grayscale will be done. One of the tags UseICCProfile or UseAMixOfColors must be true, the other false.

UseICCProfile (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

If true, and “Apply” is true, grayscale conversion will be done using the ICC profile specified with the BWProfile tag. BWProfileActive must be true as well, UseAMixOfColors must be false (as UseICCProfile and UseAMixOfColors are mutually exclusive).

UseAMixOfColors (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

if true, and “Apply” is true, grayscale conversion will be done using a mix of color channels. BWProfileActive must be true as well, UseICCProfile must be false (as UseICCProfile and UseAMixOfColors are mutually exclusive).

UseFileNameSuffix (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

if true, the specified string in “FileNameSuffix” will be attached to the filename.

FileNameSuffix (type:string, range:n/a, default:channel value)

File name suffix for BW images.

DotGainApply (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

If true, apply the dotgain compensation curve as specified in the DotGainTable tag.

DotGainTable (type:string, range:n/a, default:channel value)

Example: “6 249 6 249 27 222 65 176 128 108 180 62 250 5 250 5 black2white”

This represents a curve. The best way of approaching this is to make a curve in the Claro user-interface and then export that channel and take the numbers from the exported XML.

Gain_R_Apply (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

If true, apply a red curve as specified in the Gain_R_Table tag.

Gain_R_Table (type:string, range:n/a, default:channel value)

Example: “0 255 0 255 128 128 255 0 255 0 black2white”

This represents a curve. The best way of approaching this is to make a curve in the Claro user-interface and then export that channel and take the numbers from the exported XML.

Gain_G_Apply (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

If true, apply a green curve as specified in the Gain_G_Table tag.

Gain_G_Table (type:string, range:n/a, default:channel value)

Example: “0 255 0 255 128 128 255 0 255 0 black2white”

This represents a curve. The best way of approaching this is to make a curve in the Claro user-interface and then export that channel and take the numbers from the exported XML.

Gain_B_Apply (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

If true, apply a blue curve as specified in the Gain_B_Table tag.

Gain_B_Table (type:string, range:n/a, default:channel value)

Example: “0 255 0 255 128 128 255 0 255 0 black2white”

This represents a curve. The best way of approaching this is to make a curve in the Claro user-interface and then export that channel and take the numbers from the exported XML.

Gain_BW_Apply (type:boolean, range:true/false, default:channel value)

If true, apply a dotgain curve as specified in the Gain_BW_Table tag. The difference with the DotGainApply/DotGainTable tags is that this one only gets applied to grayscale images.

Gain_BW_Table (type:string, range:n/a, default:channel value)

Example: “6 249 6 249 27 222 65 176 128 108 180 62 250 5 250 5 black2white”

This represents a curve. The best way of approaching this is to make a curve in the Claro user-interface and then export that channel and take the numbers from the exported XML.
