Proofer RIP replacment... whatcha got!
« on: December 21, 2020, 11:07:22 AM »
So our EFI RIP finally died and EFI says its not supported anymore. Great. Let's spend more money on a simple program that allows us to append a color profile to output.

So what is everyone using out there with their proofers? We have an Epson P9000.

Wait? What? Are you talking about EFIcolor? Then I would probably upgrade to the next version which is fiery XF, right?

We use Fiery XF...
He stated their PDF's are 99.9% accurate and I replied we prefer 100% accuracy.

Yeah it was EFI Color. So I should just get the newest version?

Joe, we contemplated going 100% soft (giggity) but too risky for us.

We use Fiery XF...

We do too, but protect your dongle. They charge about 250 bucks for a new one.

And make certain to get the male end properly inserted into the female end. You've got a 50-50 shot of getting in the hole right the first time. If there's not a good connection, your hardware could have a software issue. Nobody wants a dangling dongle; it can be an embarrassing problem.
