Quick Start


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.
