    This probably won’t be of more than an academic interest to many. Every year the Royal BC Museum (and others, I’m sure) host the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibit, produced by the Natural History Museum in London , UK. These aren’t prints on paper, but prints on film that are mounted into backlit frames. Anyway, the folks at x-rite are hosting a webinar on profiling transmissive materials, on December 9.

    Yes, but you need an i1Pro3+ and iO table to do it.

    Or a DTP-41T to do it. Or a Spectrolino T. Both can occasionally be found on Ebay. You’ll need to use an older software like ColorPort to measure, then save CGATs for i1P.

    I don’t recommend doing so unless you really want to spend a lot of time building transmissive profiles.

    I think it’s worth saying that while there are many older instruments and applications that support transmissive profiling, XRite has introduced some all new color science into the transmissive profiling process with i1Profiler3 and the i1Pro3+ and the results are better than I’ve even seen before. And yes, you can do it with or without the iO table, but a lightable is required for either. I have a short review with details and examples one can view at https://www.on-sight.com/xrite-i1pro3-review/
