Fujifilm XMF / java and 3D Export
Last post by frailer -
We used to be able to Export these before the move to current XMF and new iMacs. I've followed the prompts to download (see screenshot for no-can-Export), and have, I assume, downloaded JRE.

Have done a restart, but it's still not Exporting. I've emailed Fujifilm Graphics software guy, but thought I'd drop this here
in case someone has some thoughts overnight.

Thanks....   :hello:

generally we strip out ICC profiles here as well... the digital indigo only really 'understands' SWOP profile and anything else will produce 'unexpected' results (i.e weird at best!)
For Offset, generally i strip them out as well... although with the new rip its probably not so necessary now, but the old rip we had some crazy stuff happen with some embedded profiles, so figured best to remove. All offset work has a digital proof, customer approves first and the press(s) matches fairly well.

 The only thing that worked properly on the printshop i used to work was a supra 2008 ( or '05 ) model on prinect '11 workflow  ( that's when they bought it and never upgraded ever since )

 We service it a couple of times after doing some ''tests'' the management thought of ( exposing plates on very low speeds so they could be processed on our analogue ( film ) processor  :facepalm:  :banghead:  :banghead:  :banghead:
Supra was filled with blue ''debris'' after a couple of months and after the obligatory service ( cleaning ) never stopped - and never got serviced again - if it ain't broke we don't mess with it -

Before prinect i worked a little bit with nexus and preps 5.3 so i can't really compare it with anything else, but i think it's a very productive and user friendly workflow with lots of capabilities!

Indigos don't use toners - don't know about Xeikon.

I don't know how they call their ''inks'' but they are liquid, water-like not offset ink-like.

I also don't know if calibration is the right word, but i believe that they must conform to the ''ordinary'' ISO stantards ( FOGRA - gracol swop etc ) depending on the continent and the customers of the printer ( in Europe that is FOGRA39 or usually iso coated v2 300 )

As far as how the PDF's are made...we encourage customers to use our job options file we supply them with. Basically PDF X4 with the only change being zip compression instead of jpeg and the latest pdf version available. We don't want them outputting for any special conditions.

I know on Rampageā„¢ (R.I.P.  :tombstone: ), unless you purchase the additional module that maintains ICCs, it cannot apply an ICC profile to any jobs, and my understanding was that it strips existing ICC profiles from jobs. I did use ICC profile for our shop, but only on the proofer (using EFI Color, pre-XF).

Where I'm at now, we have no presses and anything that requires that kind of volume goes out. We are strictly digital now and don't use ICCs; it's all down-and-dirty, take it or leave it.
