I have only recently started making printer profiles, with an Eye-One Pro and Match 3.0.1. The first attempt was for an Epson R800 on a cheap everyday matt-coated paper.
I printed the two-page RGB target, which looked ok, and was measured well dried in strip mode. When Match came to calculate the profile however, it threw up the alert: “Warning: The profile check resulted in some deviations. If you decide to continue please test the profile before you use it in production…”. I re-read the targets with the same result, and then repeated the procedure with the one-page target. Same again. The profile seems ok in practice as far as I can tell.
Mike Cummings reassures me that Match often throws up these spurious alerts, especially with matt papers, but I am posting here partly to inform others who might be in the same boat as me, and partly to ask for other peoples take on this problem. What sort of deviations is Match finding? If it is not impressed by the gamut achievable with a particular printer+paper combination that is understandable, but the alert implies a problem with the profile. Id like to know what is going on, or what Match thinks is going on.
