I measured my test print in single scan mode this time, successfully, with version 1.5.0, of 48 lines, 1600 patches. I do have an icc profile and have saved it to external drive also.
My questions of the more experienced users:
1. Is there a way to save a measurement as you are doing it, say on line 7 of 48, and every so often, as user sees fit ? I could not find this ability.
2. What is ADC and where is it found and how to disable it, anyone know?
3. Could someone update me on what XDR is in this software, and how it affects the profiling of icc profiles?
I am hesitant to upgrade to 1.5.4 now in software. May stick with 1.5.0. Any thoughts on this?
As I said, I did succeed in getting a single scan icc profile of 1600 patches, will print a test photo print with this profile later today, on Canon ipf6400.
1. No, a shame you can't. It's another "what are they thinking?" issues with the product. Worse, you could in theory measure all the patches and only at the end of the process be told something you measured at the beginning of the process is questionable so you can't save the existing data or remeasure.
2. Where are you seeing this?
3. It's difficult to get a firm answer from X-rite. It's supposed
to aid with multiple device connectivity. It's a mess of a solution in search of a problem. It's always running, sucking up system resources. In older products that didn't have XRD, it was no big deal to connect multiple instruments, worse case you quit the application, hooked up the new device, relaunch. Instead we have something that gets it wrong more often than with past products and it is buggy and has components all over the system with no uninstaller. A huge mess of poor engineering and software design.
I'm hesitant to upgrade as well. I saw the Release Notes, they are a joke! It says little if anything about the differences in since 1.5, the bit about the color engine scares me, it's important for them to let us know what we should be seeing here. If I build a new profile in 1.5.4 that's different due to the color engine and I'm doing trending or analysis, I need to know how this may affect me.
