Now that I’m reasonably comfortable with the new PiezoPro system/tools and how the inks behave on my papers, I am ready to move to K5 Cool + K4 Warm on my 7900. I realize I will need to redo some of the linearization work I’ve already done, but I think the investment in learning this system was necessary before getting in deeper.
I will be putting the Cool Very Light in my Orange slot since the normal channel for this ink (Green) is dead. Here’s an outline of what I think I need to do:
- Load Cool Very Light in new refillable Orange Cart, install, then run a number (3-4?) of large (24 x 36) purge prints to push out the Piezoflush currently in the Orange channel.
- Once I see ink printing, run additional purge prints to remove the Piezoflush staining.
- With staining gone in the new ink, and for each of my papers:
- Remap my "starting Cool K5 curve" to move Green to Orange slot (starting curve will be the specific paper curve you've provided instead of the K4 Master curves I used previously)
- Linearize the remapped Cool K5 curve
- Create a new Neutral curve using the Blender Tool to combine the new linearized K5 curve with my already linearized Warm K4 curve
- Name the new Neutral curve so that it is clear it is a "custom" K5/K4 blend
Regarding the Blender Tool: Can you provide the bezier control points and Cool/Warm % you used in making the Neutral curves you provide? As a starting point, it might help reduce the amount of work I’ll need to do to make the new K5/K4 Neutral curves.
