184 and 732 are CD6 and CD5 respectively, so it's clearly transposition.
Hmmm - interesting...
but the result was *awful*. Spectacularly, totally, utterly broken. If I use it in Photoshop's "Proof Setup", for example, the displayed image is mostly flat grey. If I turn on paper colour simulation it's mostly dark black-ish grey. (I can provide the .ti1/.ti2/.ti3 files and .icc if anyone's interested, but don't expect anyone to waste their time unnecessarily).
Yeah, I'd be interested to see the three original .ti3s and the merged one created with average.
A profile generated from just one of the sample sets seems to be a lot saner. It'll be hard to say how good it is until I send output from it to the press, but for previewing jobs that've already been printed it seems to be a decent match.
One trick I sometimes use when profiling is to take a TIFF of the original printed target, then transform it *from* the printer's profile to my monitor's profile - then I can compare individual patches and see at a glance whether it's off all over, or just in specific areas.
