Im new to Pantone colors and have some doubts. I started using Pantone Bridge Coated book and Pantone software named Pantone Color Manager. Software is regularly updated and I export palettes as soon as update happens.
What I noticed is next (will took color 109C as an example):
- Pantone Bridge Coated book have same CMYK values as shown in Pantone Color Manager (as you can see in image bellow)
- When I export palettes from Pantone Color Manager to Illustrator CS6 and check the same color, I get a little bit different CMYK values, like:
Main question: Why this happens, and how can i get same values in Illustrator? Please note, that Im directly exporting palettes from Pantone software (where color values match values in the book), but for some reason I get different values in Illustrator.
Side question: You can notice that on posted images there are different HEX and RGB values (comparing picture and screenshot from software). I guess that Pantone periodically alter color values in order to get best combination possible. If that is the case, I should stick to values which i receive from Pantone software and use Pantone book to quickly get colors for project. Is this right?
