I have Signlab 9.1 print & cut and Mutoh Valuejet 1638. I dont have icc profiler module on my software. I have tried to make a new media profile few times with VPM own simple media profiler. I didn't get any profile wich is good enough.

Does anyone know how or can I import profile which I made with X-rite i1 own profiler software?

Hi TomiH,

The basic calibration offered with VPM is for linearization only, and does not offer the ability to create a full print mode (which includes a new ICC). This is the feature that you will require. It is an addon package available through sales.

I am not familiar with the Xrite software, but the general procedure is the same for third party products. We used to use GRetag software in this manner 6-7 years ago. The following assumes that Xrite software allows you to create ICCs.

You will need to edit a new print mode in VPM which has the ICC tags disabled (unchecked).

Because you are possibly starting with a very limited set of print modes to choose from, I would recommend that you perform the linearization first of this new print mode. (If you do have a large selection of print modes to choose from, choose a print mode of similar material type to what you are profiling. The linearization curves will be similar in most cases).

Using this new print mode, print the target charts supplied by the third party software. It is important to have ICCs disabled while printing IT8 target charts.

Scan the targets using the third party software and create a new ICC file.

Once the ICC file is created, you can manually edit the print mode above, use this new ICC file and re-enable all the input icc.

This workflow is dependent on the quality of the ICC generation of the third party software. Purchasing the addon module for VPM provides a lot of greyscale controls for the ICC.
