the express rip was indeed the hq version and we had the seps recombining proofing solution bit as well (as you can see - i cant remember the damm name)


we had serious colour matching issues and as i said, at the time "they" were crap as opposed to the system. the rip itself was ok - standard hq stuff really - active/held queue etc


it was compose themselves who couldn't/wouldn't help us. and i should qualify that i'm in the u of k :hello:


i had their so called colour "guru's" in my studio for a few days - no improvements, so we binned the compose rip altogether because we were simply left, no calls, no help, no advice no nothing. once bitten and all that....

almost as bad as a "pdf guru"

i have no idea what a fcuking guru is anyway - and i care just slightly less for self awarded genius titles - unless it's prepress god in which case i'm in :)

Well the platesetter came in and it's a Heidleberg topsetter 6100?? They told me it was a SCREEN but I'm assuming it is the same thing maybe. And an AGFA gumming unit.

Doesn't Screen make them and Heidelberg just brands them? We have one, too.

Well that's what I'm guessing and to confuse me even more....... the printed manual says it is Fujifilm.
