    Rip software

    Hi All

    Do any of you guys have some experiences with rip software.
    I'm working with an Epson 3880 and an Epson 7890 - and it'll probably only be with the 78990 (24") i'll be using rip software.

    What do you use and what's the cost of this?

    Re: Rip software

    I worked for ECRM many years ago. At that time, there were really only two rip engines on the market -- Adobe and Harlequin. Any company requiring rasterizing software used one of those under the hood. But the field may have changed a lot since then. I suggest you look for a prepress forum instead of a photography forum to get current information -- few photographers actually need to know anything about printing technology, and a lot more people think they know things than actually do. FWIW

    Hi tclune

    Thanks, queess you're right. Probably should find some prepress site. Do you know about any good prepress sites?

    But of course, I'm still interested in any concrete input and experiences on rip software.

    Last time I was involved in this, there was a usenet prepress user group, but I don't know if that still exists. Another site that is spoken well of is http://printplanet.com/ but I don't know it personally. FWIW

    Thanks, I've found a couple of sites. Printplanet is one of them.
    A very good one is http://www.graphicdesignforum.com I've already got some adcice here.

    What I'm thinking of using this rip for is layout of a bunch of pictures on the roll of paper.

    Look at this: http://www.colorbytesoftware.com/index.shtml

    If you wish to find a less expensive solution, QImage claims to have rip technology under the hood.
