With the latest version of Mac OS Ventura and Capture One, my ICC printing workflow is broken. Not sure when it happened (after which upgrades) and can't tell if the problem is C1 or MacOS specific, but today I just noticed the problem after printing on my Canon Pro-1000 a complex image in which the reds were way off from the screen. My whole workflow is calibrated (Eizo with hardware calibration etc + papers with specific ICC profiles)
So that's the problem: if I use the C1 printing dialog box and specify as a color profile "Managed by printer" and then select the profile from the Canon printer driver, everything works fine (accurate colors, profile is taken into account). If I export the same image to Canon's Professional Print & Layout application and print on the same paper and profile, I get a similar print with correct/similar colors. So far so good.
However back to C1, if I print from C1 and choose directly the color profile, my colors are off. In this scenario, I expect C1 to apply the profile while disabling the Canon driver's color management (ie turn it off). My impression is that the Canon driver color management is not being turned off correctly which leads to double profiling and thus inaccurate colors... The weird part is that selecting a color profile from C1 leads to inconsistent behaviours in the canon driver: for example if I click in Print settings -> Printer Options -> Color Matching I get both options greyed out ("ColorSync" and "Canon color matching") which is expected but If I leave the exit box and get back again, "Canon color matching" becomes selected (but still greyed out). Same if I open the "Quality and Media" dialog box the first time, "Rendering Intent" is disabled (as expected) but it is enough to leave the dialog box and open it again to see this option active!! (ie no longer greyed out). Looks like a software bug in which the settings are forgotten or lost leading to a situation in which, somehow, the printer driver no longer remembers that its color management should be off (ie managed by the application) and thus takes over color management leading to a double profiling.
Not sure if anyone noticed that, but in my case lost too much time and money printing to finally understand what is happening. Now I am only printing from Canon's application, no longer trusting C1's color management.
