    program for building 7color profile

    Morning..

    As my DTP20 is not supported by profilemaker and colorport has a bug and doesnt import multi channel patches i wonder if there is another program i could use to build a CMYKRGB profile for a RIP?

    Monaco does work but i only have one target avlb and would like to use more patches like i can in messure toool...

    Any advice is apreciated. Thnx

    Heidelberg Colortool and i1Profiler are both excellent profiling softwares, able to generate MC profiles. I would try them both.

    i installed the color toolbox now..

    was able to open my messurement data as CGATS.. saved in colorport..

    i can see all details. patches and densities.. but when i try to build a profile.. it says.. wrong parameters ?.. any idea?

    as far as i can see the toolbox is limited to the charts they deliver. and there is no 7C chart for the pulse.. and you cannot create your own .. , too

    use the Heidelberg`s testchart

    u can find the links below the color toolbox links.

    There is some sample measurement data, so the colorport data is probably not suitable to create the profile.

    By the way, what do you profiling, proof or press?

    Ap.

    P.S.:

    try to make a testform in colorport to your pulse from the heidelberg sample measurement file
    (trunk the patch definitions from the file in excel, then import the list into colorport)
    toolbox is not limited to the charts, but the patch definitions, i think

    HI Apa-.-. thnx..

    i am trying to build a CMYK+RGB profile for my Z3200 inkjet printer for a RIP that controls 7 channels.. wasatch.. or EFI.

    so lins and limits i set in the rip.. i tried with monaco but the results werent perfect. some gradients and grayaxis. monaco only has one chart to use!

    i did install the heidelbergs testcharts.. but also.. i only see ONE for multi color. the pdf. i cant see the messurements for it.. will look again. and .. even IF.. i cant import them to colorport.. cuz of its bug that you cant import 7 chanels..

    the new Canon Pro-1 photo inkjet actually is using 12 ink cartridges. but many of them for grey scale printing. the colored cardridges are 7. is it possible to use it for 7 channel calibration?

    Hello T.

    I've managed to import the 7ch reference from PM5 to Colorport (2.0).

    Open the ref file in text editor,

    Find the section:

    BEGIN_DATA_FORMAT
    SampleID SAMPLE_NAME 7CLR_1 7CLR_2 7CLR_3 7CLR_4 7CLR_5 7CLR_6 7CLR_7
    END_DATA_FORMAT

    Replace with:

    BEGIN_DATA_FORMAT
    SAMPLE_ID SAMPLE_NAME PC7_1 PC7_2 PC7_3 PC7_4 PC7_5 PC7_6 PC7_7
    END_DATA_FORMAT
    import.

    have a nice day

    holy CHRIST..

    you made my DAY.. it WORKS.. man.. i tried SOOOO f*ing much for DAYS..

    i changed ink names in the text, samples data what ever!!.. but i never found a ref. text from CP to see THAT..

    thats AWESOME!

    gives me some more time to waste and paper to shred! thnx

    the official answer from xrite was.. sorry, i tried for days, too.. but it looks like there is an incompatibility that cant be solved by editing the .txt.

    hahaha!.. great support!
