Knowing where in color space this happens would be useful. With the TC918 target I tested quickly today, I see slightly above 1dE for 20 colors, mostly light green’s and teals when I sort this way in ColorThink. I don’t believe I did anything wrong printing because the average dE is low, its those worst 10% that concern me. I guess I’ll pop the same target into ID and see what I get.
I will try to repeat the problem again in the next day or so. While at it I will throw in the new color printer utility for good measure (no pun intended). So, with TC918 target I will print one with:
1) PSCS3/OS10.5 to Epson 3880 (latest driver), using No color management mode
2) IDCS5/OS10.6 to Epson 3880 (latest driver) with null transform technique
3) PSCS5/OS10.6 to Epson 3880 (latest driver) with null transform technique
4) OS10.6 to Epson 3880 (latest driver) using new color printer utility app
Seems like a good plan?
Sure would be nice to have an ISIS right about now
My Spectroscan is a little slow by comparison, but with Measure tool if I find any significant differences, I will also look to see if there is any clustering of the data.
