Good morning all,
I have Profilemaker V5 platinum version with an EyeOne and DTP70 reader. Yesterday my colour result caught me with my pants down.
I have no idea on how to start resolving the problem and I am asking for some advice please. I am fairly inexperienced in this field of ICC profiles.
Plotter : Epson 9600,
ColourProof Pro and MetaDimension RIP by Heidelberg.
During my baselinearization, the process yellow under an eye glass is clean and is madeup 100% yellow ink only. The ICCprofile is created and bound to my paper profile.
The intention is to now output the proof with a press target profile (ISO ECI V2.icc) Using relative colourmetric intent.
The result is a excellent proof in all areas except yellow. The simulation for some reason adds cyan and magenta ink to 100% yellow. Unfortunately the bits added make the pure yellow look greenish and colour incorrect. I can understand trace addition but not such large amounts that the colour changes.
What I did try was to take an existing profile supplied by Epson on a very similar paper and use this as a start. Even this profile on its own has a dirty yellow but certainly not as bad. The moment I adapt this profile to my paper the dirty yellow is made worse.
Any feed back would be most appreciated.
