i have constant problems with colours - display - print...etc. Now we bought new i1, but this thing is new for us, so i watched few tutorials, but i really didn't find any conclusive things that would show me, how to do things properly.
1. can't get 2 extended monitors to be the same (color profile)
2. problem with command workstation profile creation
3. problem with Wasatch 6.6 profile creation
4. problem with Versaworks profile creation
1.First thing that i wanted to do is to calibrate 2 monitors where i use extended monitors - here i noticed problem that i don't get same results (how much different can colours be - if i compare one to another there are different greys...). I used D65 (i read that D50 is more suitable for display - print comparisons, but it is so reddish)
I used native contrast, 100 luminance - I read few tutorials what are the best settings). I manually changed RGB and Brightness, used v.2 profiler...)
I have 2 different LCD monitors - LG and Samsung - is it possible to get same colour results?
2. because there is no support for x-rite i1 pro 2 in CW, i used ipublish to create linearisation file and printed in CW. I used basic profiles that are pre-installed. Then i read linearisation file in ipublish and used it to create new colour chart with over 2k colour patches, exported tiff file, and printed in CW. Then i read the colour strips in ipublish and created .icc profile with light conditions D65. I imported colour profile to CW as output icc profile and printed graphics, and the graphics printed without profile look nicer that with profile - colours were blurred - like it would not be enough contrast.
i have newest CW installed, and Konica Minolta 7000 production machine.
3. first i printed linearisation file from 0-100% for CMYK, and limited Y and K colour so i could see difference between 90 an 100%. Then i set ink limit to
C = 100 %
M = 100 %
Y = 80 %
K = 70 %
SUM - ink limit = 350
because wasatch 6.6 doesn't have support for i1 pro 2, so i used ipublish to create linearisation file and printed in wasatch. Then i read file in ipublish and created colour chart with the linearisation file provided. Then i printed colour chart and read it in ipublish and created profile. I imported profile to wasatch, and you wouldn't like the alien colours that i got...
I have Wasatch 6.6 and Mutoh 1604 with eco solvent inks - not original
4. I really don't have idea how to start profiling in Versaworks. I read that there should be support for i1 pro2 measurement device but i didn't find it in the device list. I really would need step by step how to create profile.
I have newest Versaworks and Roland VP-540 with eco solvent inks - not original
Thank you for your time and any help that you could offer.
