Don't forget the spoiled rotten kids who only use Facebork.
I know printing is a game of minute numbers, that's part of the reason I liked it. That's why I don't understand why the boss thinks everything can be fixed by a hammer. The minute measurements we use are the difference between success and failure.
The web sheet actually grow a little across the web as it goes through each unit of the press. We print in KCMY order in the press. Our web growth profiles enlarge the cyan one-bit tiff a tiny amount, the magenta a little bit more and the yellow the most but only across the web. A typical profile runs the black at 100%, the cyan at 100.03%, the magenta at 100.7%, and the yellow at 100.11%. It really does help
I've been in sheetfed for 15+ years, about 5 of them in a web shop and this is the only place I've ever heard of web growth. I honestly have no idea what it is and I'm pretty damn sure the web place we were in didn't know either.
Not seeing a whole lot in that video outside of some basic stuff. Indesign has years and years of development and fine tuning. Hopefully that is not the only view option you have when working, I like being able to simple hit "w" to see the finished size and hit again to see my bleeds and everything off page. If they leave the pasteboard around the page dark like that it will make it very difficult to use, at least for how I work. When setting things up I will have things all around the page sitting there till I need it.
Hopefully they come out with this app closer to being production ready then they did with Designer and Photo which lacked some very basic functionality. I will definitely be buying this as soon as it is available to really see how it stacks up to my favourite app Indesign. I think Affinity has a long road ahead of them. Great to have options outside of Quark, just hope it can live up to the usability of Indesign.
You know who will get the iMac Pro? Designers of the local church newsletter. You know them well. More cash than brains.Bought with tax free collection plate money.
Look out Adobe!!! That was very interesting
Yeah, same here. We saw it but the pressman just centered the marks to split the dif and called it good.
I'm not saying we don't have the issue on our sheetfed (s). It is just the guy in charge of sheetfed never wants anything changed. By God they ran it that way 50 years ago and they can run it that way now.
We have a new (to us) ManRoland Rotoman that can deliver folded sigs or sheets like a sheetfed. We use web growth on the stuff runs as folded sigs but not on the stuff that comes out as sheets. All from the same roll of paper. Go figure.
