QuotePreview ResolutionDefines the resolution for the plate preview that appears on the press console viewing station. Select one of the following resolutions in the list:Low resolution is approximately 12.5 ppi, which gives good preview images.Medium resolution is approximately 25 ppi, which gives a sharper preview image with more detail.High resolution is approximately 50 ppi, which gives the sharpest available preview image with the most detail.Very High resolution is up to 100 ppi, which gives the sharpest available preview image with the most detail, depending on the plate output resolution.Note: Higher resolutions give better quality preview images, but they dramatically increase the preview image file size.
Quote from: scottrsimons on August 12, 2022, 06:09:12 AMThis may or may not help. We don't have a Manroland, but have KBA presses and Prinergy. We send our plate files separately from our CIP files. Our CIP files are rendered at 300 dpi with the preview set at 'Very High', where are plates are rendered at 2540 dpi 1-bit tiffs. And I believe the preview is just creating the basic thumbnail image for the pressman on their console for a visual of the job. But when they open the job on the console the 300 or in your case the 1600 image than shows. And our CIP files appear to be under 1mb in general.
Quote from: johnny_jay on August 12, 2022, 06:27:19 AMJoe - Yes, the CIP files are their own output process. We do not output the CIP from the plate output because we have quite a few odd scenarios where there are upper plate changes, lower plate changes, single black plate changes and other odd outputs and the Manroland CIP data must be all 8 separations of a run.We do it via RBA so we have a manual trigger RBA selected (based on paper) that does 3 things, sends plate data to the plate setter, creates the CIP file and creates the tiff for PressProof.
Quote from: Joe on August 12, 2022, 07:07:26 AMIf your actual CIP files were at 300 dpi they would be much larger than 1 MB. What kind of file is being sent to the location in your Device section of your output template? That is the file that will be 300 dpi.
Quote from: scottrsimons on August 12, 2022, 07:20:08 AMJoe, our system is sending 'generic press interface' ppf files, so I'm assuming that is why they are so small. And we are not using the 'Device' tab in out Process Template. And they are being sent to a CIPLinkX server.
