But the end result should be good color matching (which Birmy is capable of with a proper custom profile anyway) plus smooth screens. I too have spent months chasing down such workflows, but it may soon be possible to get such results without nearly so much time or effort, with Adobe's PressReady. Such a combination, at least on glossy stock, is indeed capable of showing the difference between 35mm and medium format, or drum and flatbed scans. C.
