Running a linerization and profile on epson 9600 from Colorburst RIP SpectralVision- ie same as Xrite profiling. Lin looked good with reasonable step values (and values for c,m,y, and k suggested by colorburst).
Built a profile - profile target prints looked good- generation seem to go ok but the profile produces clogged black and an overal magenta cast from about mid-tone. Printer is remote so it is not that easy to run lins and targets over and over. I looked at the neutral rendering curve in ColorThink and was perplexed. here it is:
First- if anyone can intrepret this rendering curve - with its wacky lines- I would appreciate a heads up.
I am at a overall ink limit of 250 with black at 50%. I am thinking that the amount of magenta ink is just too much relative to the other inks and I should reduce the limit on the individual magenta channel and maybe step up the black (if it can take the ink). (Notice black is at a max density at about a 3/4 tone.) Then relin and re profile.
FYI- the black started at 25 either by default or my selection.
Anyone with hints or suggestions - I welcome them. Thanks
