Can I remap LLK to support HD MK for making piezography positive prints on matte paper with ProInks?
I’ve reviewed the video (thank you) and the documentation in Pro tools so understand the workflow.
Here is the background for this question.
I have Pro inks installed in my 7880. As I primarily use this printer for digital negatives slot 5, the K channel, is installed with HD PK ink. Slot 1, the LLK channel, has GCO installed.
When I want to print a piezography positive print I only use matte papers. I have built profiles using HD PK ink to print on matte papers (knowing the limitations PK on these papers). And so GCO is never used. I have been doing this for proofing purposes. But it would be nice to be able to print piezography positive prints without having to change PK to MK and back.
It seems to me that since digital negatives (and associated quad) does not use the LLK channel it doesn’t matter what ink is in that slow. And so when I remap quads from LLK to HD MK (as found in the 4880-7880-9880-Pro folder) for using the piezography pro inks for positive prints and use these for printing it will ignore the K channel and use the LLK remapped channel instead (now filled with HD MK). Correct or am I missing something?
p.s. – assuming this will work here is a followup question. I have HD MK ink in a cartridge. Instead of syringing this ink out into a new LLK cartridge is there any reason I cannot simply swap the LLK chip onto the K cart?
