curve creation and linearization tools
for Epson UltraChrome K3 Print
These new self-contained QuadToneRIP tools allow for easy toner profile creation and linearization. The built in starter curves are compatible with all standard UltraChrome K3 printers and ink sets, including the new SureColor Printers.
Now available as a powerful native macOS application

A new Curve Editing interface for working directing with the ink values
New in version 1.3 is a new intuitive curve editing interface that works just like a Photoshop curve editor. It allows you to work with the shape of each ink channel separately. This can be used for smoothing the ink curve values or making new curves directly.
Premade Curves for SeveN Common Toning Profiles
The shape of the pre-made starter curves are designed for easy linearization with the built-in tools, and allow them to be compatible with both the Stylus Pro and Sure Color printers. They do not require any manual calculation or the need to compile QTR-curves from ink descriptor files.
starter Curves for interpositive and Direct to plate Photogravure
If you are using photopolymer gravure, you have the option of choosing to make an interpositive and stochastic screen two-exposure method or a direct to plate approach with a single exposure (using MK ink). Additional smoothing tools solve some of the problems with inking and wiping that some people might encounter when getting starter.
Easily control the Black ink Limit
The default black ink levels ensure deep rich blacks without losing detail, but the ink limit controls allow for easily modifying the total ink limit for a wide range of papers.
The Ink balancing system prevents to added color toner inks from overloading the paper and prevents excessive ink bleed and pooling
Simple Biult-in Linearization tools
Linearization is done with a standard 21, 51, 128 or 256-step target.
The behind the scenes smoothing and linearization functions shift the final quad curves to the needed levels for perfectly smooth prints.
The stand-alone linearization system allows you to reshape and preview the final quad curves without any additional need for the standard QuadToneRIP tools.
Easily export the linearized curves with a single button and get on with the real printing.
