I'm at home without my Pantone book: can somebody please look up Pantone 214 C and let me know if there is an exact process equivalent? Fangs :)

Fangs :)I cannot find my PMS-to-process book but I looked 214 up in Illustrator and asked it to show it in CMYK. If that works, then the formula is 0 100 34 8 — does that work for you?

Out and about at the moment,if you are in a rush try downloading Pantone Colourbridge and check on the PDF chart.

Dang. vB ate my earlier reply.

My pantone book gives the same values as yours, KT, other than 8.5 instead of 8 for the K.

Looks to be a pretty good match, too.

Sorry, I was rushed so didn't explain myself properly. Frustrator gives 0 100 34 8 here too, but will Pan 214 convert exactly to process, rather than just approximately? In other words, does the Solid-Process swatch in the Pantone book have the four spots?

Good luck with it.

I'm looking at the Pantone Process Color Imaging Guide 1000. It's got Pantone 214c and Pantone OZIB-C as the equivalent, and 0 / 100 / 34 / 8.5 as the CMYK values.

I think that means, wrt your question, "Yes". ;-)

And unlike some of the Pantone-supplied CMYK equivalents, this one's a pretty good match to the PMS version.
