This paper compares two systems for neutral requirement predictions in terms of % dot area values of halftone seperation negatives. The systems compared (to note a significant difference in the neutral requirement prediction) were the GATF system using the "GATF Color Reproduction Guide" as -control and the RIT system which calculates neutral requirements from empirical second degree equations. A significant difference between calculated values of neutral requirements for each prediction system was concluded.
