KCMS Application Developer's Guide

Complete Color Profile

The preceding three profile types do not contain enough information for the KCMS framework to convert color data from one form to another. Useful color transformations can only happen when your application uses the KCMS API to connect two or more profiles together to form a complete color profile (CCP). A CCP is a connected sequence of profiles with a DCP or a CSP at either end, and possibly one or more ECPs or DCPs in between. The equivalent ICC term for complete color profile is device link profile. (See Table 2-1.)
