    Question trapping software - need advice

    Hello, I have a company Prepress Print Off-set, we work with CTP BASYS, and received every kind of material, commercial, editorial and all the programs used in the market.
    I wonder what solutions would be interesting to put in our company
    Example: Traps, we would use in direct RIP? or you guys recommend any software, I thought a lot in ArtPro, but as it is a program that requires conversion of the files, it runs the risk of a very big mistake, because we work all type, like a recommendation for some software to do Trapping in this PDF that would be interesting.

    Grateful

    Traping to the best programs is Heidelberg Prinect PDF Toolbox, it does so directly on PDF

    Hi djcampos,

    If you get lots of different files, from different source, I suggest a "Workflow System" as a base to "Normalize" your work. Now as some good workflow goes, Prinergy (Kodak) / Prinect (Heidelberg) dose pretty much the same thing (they were made by a joint venture between Heidelberg and Creo) they both run on PDF. So if you can get ANY artwork in pdf you can run them trough both and then trap, impose and color separate as needed. Their are many other solutions out on the market but I can vouch for Prinergy its very stable. You might also take a look at Nexus or Odystar just to name 2 more.

    Hope this helps.

    Trapping

    Almost all of the trapping we do is through Harlequin 8 with trap pro.
    Very seldom do i have to manually trap anything (using illustrator
    or Trapwise).

    Thanks

    When I use before the Artpro again, there are many problems, for example: little figure, fonts conversion wrong, etc... Do all the tissues, so is a manual there are many issues...

    I now is to use Prinergy, very friendly, automatic tissues...

    I believe that the best thing is to use rip harlequin. In order to make trapping and the corresponding separations.

    I vote for in-RIP autotrapping in your case. TrapPro or Adobe IRT.
    Both give acceptable results in most cases.
    ArtPro isn't a tool for your kind of jobs.

    I would use in-RIP trapping such as Rampage, It mixes trap values, uses luminance and colour values to trap.

    I also find that in-RIP trapping is faster then trapping in acrobat using plug-ins
