Stock Groups are a mechanism that allows a user to define a number of media that they would like to be treated identically for color processing. A single calibration and characterization is associated with each Stock Group, and all media within the group are processed using those transformations. The user can define a representative, or centerline, stock on which the Stock Groups calibration and characterization are built. This concept allows the user to easily manage a set of stocks as if they were a single stock, and frees them from having to keep track of previous associations, without losing the flexibility of the existing solution.
