Xitron Systems / Re: Postscript out of InDesign with RTI RipKit, then ripping

Is there something glaringly wrong with doing it this way?
Aside from being stuck firmly in 1992? I suppose not!  :lmao:
Okay, Okay, Okay, that wasn't fair! Maybe true, but not fair!
LOL, thanks for the…whatever.

You will be fine until something comes out wrong/missing. When that happens...good luck.
I'm cautious. Going to do a lot of back and forth tests.
This goes back to the issue I was having the other day with Navigator/Harlequin not launching because I went in and tried to give more memory to the application. Come to find out that Navigator 8 is only a 32 bit program and if I want to utiize the RAM I loaded in the 64 bit ready XP box, we need to upgrade to at least Navigator/Harlequin 10. The boss lives for not spendng money, even if I have to manually trap and put sheet marks around the page. The dollars for a new rip that traps would have been paid for by now, but hey - job security for me.
If you run into your old self in that space-time continuum, don't shake hands. Same matter can't occupy the same space, and you might explode the whole universe.

You know when we first signed up for CC we asked why we couldn't just use individual accounts and they gave us the spiel of how much easier it is to manage and then gave us the team accounts for the same price the individual accounts were at the time which was an upgrade. But it wasn't against the Terms of the Service at the time. They just discouraged it. Once again they change the rules in the middle of the game.

Yeah once I confirmed it through talking to Adobe through a chat on their site. Turns out that we're violating their Terms of Service by using licenses intended for freelancers.  :facepalm: So yeah. Really fun.

Xitron Systems / Postscript out of InDesign with RTI RipKit, then ripping
Last post by rickself -
I've been doing some testing to speed things up in the old rip and I came up with much faster ripping with a separated PS file from InDesign and dropping THAT into the Navigator rip for plates. In the Roam window I compared the Cyan plate from a ps file ripped on my Mac, laying it down on a ripped file from Navigator and saw no difference. In a fraction of the time. Instead of moving a 20mb file across the network for it to rip 45 minutes, I moved a 100mb file across the network and it took only 2 minutes to rip. I made sure to change my screen angles in InDesign to reflect the same angles in the rip.

Is there something glaringly wrong with doing it this way? I do the layout in InDesign to the sheet size, add my own side guides, reg marks, colorbar - all the rip is doing is translating the file to plate.
