as i spent NUMEROUS hours with installing RIPs and wasting papers i would like to give a briefs review here to help others and collect their opinion.
i decided to start with EFI because of some advantages.. but the bugs are just killing me.
they have that dynamic wedge idea.. great i think! only works on a single page tho. took me 6 hours to find out that it is not working with a nesting (although it should)
i had everything set up perfect to deltaE 1 with my Z3200ps.. even though i calibrate it every morning.. im off around dE 5 now!.. not sure why..
when i do the relin with EFI it gets me an average of dE 56!!!.. obviously not right!
so i tried colorGate.. printed the first LIN chart for my pulse.. oops.. its printing one for the i1.. had to choose another chart.. that worked.
printed the profile.. read it remotely.. cant read the data.. why? bug!.. had to read everything again. line by line.
rendered a profile. printed the first picture.. TOTALLY wrong colours!.. why? no idea!
i printed the optimization profile with 510 patches (thats what it says) read it.. got dE of 50 max...? why? . i counted the patches. its only got 500 on the printed chart.. why? no idea.. lol
i gave up!
