ok, I'm trying to help out a little. I'm not very experienced in Rasterproofing but maybe I can tell you something about the normal colormanagment-settings of CPXF.
Your Workflow is not configured for colormanagment yet. So go to System-Manager and set the workflow offline by clicking the green dots. Otherwise you won't be able to change settings.
Then go to "Workflow-Designer" and choose "Load Workflow" from the Menu. Load your Workflow (Workflow-Name followed by the word "offline") and click the color symbol.
Now for the settings:
If you are working with different sourceprofiles leave it NONE, instead check "use embedded if available". This maybe not working with Rasterproofs, that I don't know. If your Proofdata is always in the same CMYK-Colorspace (maybe your custom Working Colorspace in Photoshop) you can set this as the source-profile, but there's no need to, the data is already seperated and won't change.
This should be the Profile of the machine and/or printing circumstances you want to simulate with your proof, for example isocoated.icc if you want to simulate european standard for offset-printing on paper class 1 + 2.
Visual Correction Curve (VCC):
This is more a possibity to "tune up" your proofersettings when you're not completely satisfied with the results or you haven't got a measuring instrument. So leave it unchecked for start.
The standard linearization is not done by Visual Correction Tool, you use the Option "Linearization by measure" (don't know the correct name in english, it's the left option of the colormanager). The linearization won't save a Correction Curve-file, it will overwrite the EPL-file of your paperprofile which CPXF generates by itself (simply when you put a Paperprofile in the Profile-Folder.).
Where to put Paper profile:
Paper Profile must be set for the PRINTER, not the Workflow. Go to System-Manager, choose your Outputdevice and select your Media and Inks. CPXF will load the profile automatically if it's in the right folder and generate a linearization file (epl).
I really don't know anything about this.
This option is only needed if you want to connect a Linearization to a specific Paperprofile, to make sure it's only used in combination. But there's no need doing that.
ok, that's it. For more you should consider reading the manual or visit the link loethelm posted. Hope I could help.
P.S: Sollte ich hier irgendetwas falsches geschrieben haben, bitte ich darum, mich zu korrigieren!
