About the Interactive Viewer
The Interactive Viewer is possible because of the special nature of the I-Trap data
format that is generated during the Rip processing. This data format
is a compact format that supports, up to 16 inks, pixel level reference
to any of up to 127 different trap zones, image vs lineart and gradients designation,
random data access, and trap parameter sets.
Interactive Viewer has a Jobs Manager tool that
takes in jobs of any number of pages. You can easily see how many pages are in the
job and quickly see the preview of any page with a double click
to open and a simple keyboard shortcut to close. Trapping can be
turned on or off for all pages in the job with a single click and
can be individually set for each page.
The Interactive Viewer has an Information Manager tool that provides
access to all data about the trap settings and page information.
It starts with a main info window that gives the full list of inks
in the job. This doubles as a densitometer tool by giving the precise
color values from the cursor position over the preview. It also
provides positional information of the cursor relative to the original
data. The tabbed panel can then be switched to show the list of
trap zones in the job. For each zone, it will show the trapping
parameters for that zone. The next tab provides ink information
allowing you to control the color representation, ink settings and worflow parameters.
The Interactive Viewer has the
industries first Graphical Configuration tool for trapping. No longer
do you have to try to figure out all those numbers and tables. With
the Graphical Configuration tool, you are given easy to read feedback
on the most important trap settings in a composite graphical window. The
Interactive Viewer has a Page Preview tool that lets you quickly see the source
page. It lets you zoom in to the finest detail of any place in the
job. You can quickly move around while you zoom in and out on the
job. You can switch from the source un-trapped view to the trapped
view or split the window to view both simultaneously (in Windows only).
The Interactive Viewer has a Trap On The Fly tool
that allows you to zoom into any Area
of Interest in the job and with a single click it uses the actual
trap engine to apply your current trap settings to only the currently
zoomed data. This is one of the most useful tools in the chest,
as it gives fast feedback of how your job will be trapped. Using
the feature of random access in the trap data format, the Trap on
the Fly option of I-Trap can apply traps to zoom windows of entire
plate signatures in just seconds.
