The icc’s I created for CCP K3 Vivid Ultra HD are nowhere near the accuracy of the curves I created for PiezoPro. I’m running both inksets on a pair of Epson3880’s.
I’m using an i1 Pro2 to create a custom icc for CCP ultra HD inks in a 3880 on Epson Legacy Platine. (The iMac is recently calibrated with the same device.)
I seem to recall some anomaly with printing the control patch charts and this computer. My web search has come back empty.
Q1: Is there a quality difference in printing the patches in a scrambled pattern vs. in a chromatic pattern?
My images are generally 16 bit color; the control patch files generated by i1Profiler are 8 bit.
Q2: Does bit depth affect profile creation? If so, would converting the patches charts to 16 bit yield different results?
I print through Print-Tool, so I chose “No Color Management” in Print-Tool. I used i1 Profiler to generate and save 2033 patches. After 24 hours of drying time, I created the profile; then I chose “Optimize” and Printed another 2033 patch set using that first profile. This created an “optimized” icc.
I selected M0 single scan, photo paper, semi-matte Paper, and Solvent Inkjet flyout settings in i1Profiler.
My system is a 27"iMac, OS X 10.13.3.
I’ve been forced into iterative printing, making adjustments in PS until the print looks close to my preference. Any tips on creating ICC’s for your inkset on this printer? I was expecting far better results with a $1500 spectrophotometer.
Unless I’ve overlooked something in my internet search, I have come back empty on discovering anything I’m doing wrong. Is there a specific web source you could refer me to?
