OK, this is what I have gleaned from Tom's explanation and from using the 2 programs:
CP has fixed reduced sat target points. In CP, the triplet (color/intensity of the pattern) is changed according to your target gamma.
In CM V5 the reduced sat target points
are changed according to your target gamma. The triplets are fixed no matter what gamma is used/targeted.
The triplets I used in these patterns are what CM V5 expects to see when you select "75% sat only" at 75% level no matter what gamma you target. They are very close to what CP expects at 2.2 gamma, but in order to really nail it I am going to have to make some new patterns for CP.
The triplets I used are:
I am going to ask Joel to verify this.Edited by Chad B - 4/12/13 at 7:06am
