This document describes the
setup of the Luicd Trapping plugin to the Harlequin ScriptWorks
Rip and the I-Trap Interactive Trapper and Viewer, the rules and
parameters that are used by the Lucid Dream Trapping Engine.
It is assumed that the user
is familiar with the basic concept of trapping, trapping terminology,
as well as the ScriptWorks Rip configuration issues.
The TaskForce I-Trap trapping
engine processes the raster job data supplied by the Rip after interpretation
and rasterization and outputs the trapped data as a set of two binary
files that need to be returned to the Rip for producing the final
output by the desired device plugin.
Benefits of I-Trap
I-Trap can be configured
to trap jobs automatically or interactively and can be easily set
up to accommodate different kinds of jobs. Users will usually start
trapping everything interactively to learn the system. Once trapping
parameters are fully understood and have been configured, these
settings can be saved in a Page Setup that would be later used to
print automatically trapped jobs.
TaskForce I-Trap can be included in a queue with any available
output Rip plugin transferring data through a spool folder mechanism.
