I’ve used K7 inks for a year now and am familiar with linearizing using Roy Harrington’s droplet. Now I’m ready to get going with the Pro inks (Epson 3880). However, the 2017 Deluxe Edition Manual does not explain how to deal with the 3 curves used with Pro inks. Reading previous posts in this forum it seems that the recommendation is to linearize the Cool quad curve, and the Warm quad curve, right? I know the moderators say it should work right out of the box, but I’m going to check it anyway. I am confused by the Neutral quad curve. Why not linearize the neutral curve? If a neutral colored image is some combination of the Warm and Cool inks (2:8 or whatever) then what is the role of a Neutral quad curve given that there is no Neutral ink? How does linearizing Warm and Cool affect the Neutral quad curve? Can one have linear Warm and Cool quad curves, and print using just the Neutral curve and have the print not be linear?
I’m sure this is my limitation, and I am grateful if anyone can shed light on this for me. Thank you,
