A brief search turned up no obvious results.
So, I bought a ColorMunki. Some slight confusion.
When I go to print the target that will be used to create a profile, I'm assuming that I need to use the "media type" setting given by the paper manufacturer. For example: (this is using the canned profiles from Lexjet) Lexjet tells me I need to use "Watercolor Paper Radiant White" when printing on Sunset Select Matte Canvas. ( Well, actually, as per Lexjets print instructions for the 11880, it states you are suppose to use "UlraSamooth Fine Art Paper," but this apparently isn't exactly true. Lexjet just forgets to mention this...)
So, my questions are: Does it make a difference what "media type" setting I use to print the ColorMunki target? Aside from PK/MK black issue, I was under the impression that "media type" only affects things like platen gap settings and other physical media characteristics, and nothing to do with color.
Example: (this is all using Sunset Select Matte as an example) Suppose I print a target using Watercolor Radiant White as the media type, generate the profile, and use that profile with that specific media-type setting. Would I achieve the same results if I were to print the target using UltraSmooth Fine Art as the media type, generate the profile, and use THAT profile with THAT specific media type setting?
Lastly, if media-type does indeed make a difference during the target printing stage, what do I do if a paper manufacturer doesn't state which media-type setting should be used? Example: Lexjet doesn't state what should be used when printing from a 4900 using Sunset Matte Canvas. They don't even have a canned profile for it, actually.
