To elaborate on my comments about Gamutvision made earlier today.
First I want to retract some of the bad comments I made about inconsistencies in some of the Gamutvision modules. I have BEEN unable to to reproduce some of the tests I did a few month back.
I stand by the buggy comment as the CRASH 002 screenshot below show an effect I get with some regularity.
The second screens shot shows a the wire frame outline of the aRGB colour space of my monitor plotted against the output of a colormunki made profile to my Epson 3880 (Solid colour) printing on a Red River Arctic Polar Gloss paper. The profile is 3D, and we can only see the 2D effect on the front of this image, but it is abundantly clear I can print a significant amount of blue green saturated colour that could exist in the image , but not be visible on my monitor. If we could see the back of the plot would also be able to see that a small amount of red and yellow has the same effect of being printable but not visible in the aRGB colour space on my monitor.
The Granger Rainbow - top right will show any anomalies in the gamut plot br showing incorrect transition or wrong colours. I deleted one profile because a solid black vertical strip in the middle of the blue band.
There is a lot more to it, but would be some what tedious to detail it all here.
I guess this is a long winded way of saying I use these features when prepping and soft proofing my images, comparing profiles, and generally trying to improve my prints.
Does it help - I like to think so, but cannot give an empirical answer.
At this stage I am not looking for a radical silver bullet break through. Most advances I now make are more incremental than revolutionary.
Enough for now.
