    You dont need to make the profiles on your own.
    With GMG ColorProof a standard ICC profile for the media is not enough, the process of calibrating a new (non GMG) media is quite an hassle

    In my opinion.
    Regarding to Contone proofs: Esko FlexProof+Kaleidoscope results are best.
    Regarding to screened proofs: GMG is best.

    I am using an old verison of EFI Colorproof for several years now - I am very satisfied with the results on my HP Printer. I think the quality of the rip also depends on which output the result is generated, i.e. which printer is used.

    It depends on your needs... Efi is good, but GMG is complete solution for color managment and color conversions between the difrent color profiles and color representations ond difrent printing tehnologies

    We use Serendipity Blackmagic as our RIP. Its able to do softproofing, but also output to our Epson printers. And reading the 1 bit tiff data from our Harlequin rip it can make real dot proofs, awesome stuff!

    I use separated eskoLen-file+EfiColorProoof(screend proofs) for flexo.
    BUT for a screened GMG it is better.

    GMC uses CUSTOM profiles... So i prefeere standard ICC software for better integration.

    X-rite Monaco Profiler. Good gray balance and smooth color tones especially near gamut edges.

    Efi or colorproof

    EFI IS MORE FAST AND SIMPLE OF GMG, I WORK WITH Both , AND EFI USE more HARDWARE, BUT IS BETTER

    Agree for Efi - but in the same time is the buggiest software that I ever seen...

    EFI XF 4 can not handle overprints of spot colours properly. I.e., Black + Yellow looks lighter than Black itself, and in some condition may looks lighter than the whitepoint of the reference ICC-profile.

    Absolutely the best especially with perceptual rendering.
