The refine program is a bit experimental, in that it hasn't been widely used or evaluated. In spite of my efforts to tame it, it also doesn't respond very well when faced with out of gamut target colors. I found in simulations that it tended to bounce from good to bad each iteration for those colors. Any "noisiness" of the printer/instrument readings (ie. lack of repeatability) will make things difficult as well.
Indeed, this is exactly what happens when performing a few iterations.
I'd need to see much more detailed information to comment any further.
I have attached a few measurements. In the archive ProofingPaper.zip you can find 2 measurement files. Index 0 means that it was the initial target. In PremiumGlossyPhoto.zip there are 5 measurement files. As you will see, with this paper only on step 4 the substrate dE started to increase. The measurement files contain the following columns: - reference CMYK; - printed CMYK( device link output ); - reference Lab; - measured Lab; - reference-measured dE Also, at the beginning of each files there are a few statistics about each measurement. The average substrate dE is computed considering all the white patches in the target. Best regards, Marcel.
