How do I print in fine art mode using a clear transparent media? If I choose CMYKWW transparent media, it only gives me the option for quality layered. I have tried using generic backlit and generic and I made it work, but my colors come out WAY too dark. Any help would be appreciated!

In the media profile you have, the only mode that has been profiled is Quality Layered.

If you want another mode to be available you have to build a profile for it.

In this case the profile is for clear media and thus you will need a spectrophotometer that supports transmissive readings.

These devices are very expensive so it would be more cost effective to call in someone to build you some profiles.

PS you say the colours are way too dark? It may be they are dark if assessed on a white background but maybe they density is set for backlit viewing?

Put it on a lightbox - the density may be fine for that application.

I got my colors to come out better by using a different media option, I believe I chose generic vinyl, and the colors came out the way they should.
