To fully support the latest OS and development technologies, from V6.4.0 onwards GMG MX is upgraded to VISU as the sole Color Engine of PrintFactory.
As VISU is aslos specifically built for this industry and share the same architectural concepts full functionality and continuity is guaranteed and explained below.
New pmms are created with VISU. The VISU profile creation wizard is very alike to the MX wizard and consists of the same 3 main steps: linearisation, TAC (Total amount of coverage) and Target gamut calculation.

Existing MX pmm
Existing MX pmms can still be used and are fully functional. However, they can no longer be recalibrated. To be able to recalibrate an MX from V6.4.0. onwards, the MX needs to be converted:
- Calibrator: select the variant of the pmm and right click
- Convert to VISU
- => a separate pmm is created with the same name adding VISU at the end.
The converted profile now uses the VISU engine and allows for recalibration, Device-Link and spot color tuning, LAT adaptation.
Note: Convert to VISU is not supported for RGB profiles and will require a new VISU pmm to be built.
