    We have a Falcon Ourdoor 46 and we just bought Flexi-10.
    When we attempt to print gradients we're getting other hues thrown into the mix. IE: light gray to black ends up with magenta or green hues.
    Is this something that color profiling will fix? We need to speak with someone who has a real handle on this stuff asap. The project is a $15,000.00 three bus deeal that we'll have to pass on if we can't resolve it very soon. We'd very much like to call anyone that can help.
    Thanks for any help.

    Denver.
    If you have transiencies. Take it into Photoshop and flatten the File. It'll work wonders.

    Thanks. It happens even if we set up a simple rectangle and gradient from white to black or from white to red. The hues still enter the picture.

    Make sure your rendering intents are set to 'No Color Correction' for gradients. Actually, they should be set to this for everything except bitmaps which should be set to 'Perceptual'.

    In Production Manager select the highest gradient handling option available to you. In 8.6 it's 'Super', bog knows what it might be in 10.

    If all of that doesn't get you there, convert all the gradient stuff to bitmaps and, if necessary, add a little noise to them if they want to show any banding.
