Compose’s InkScript Optimizer is a Preflight, Standardization and Optimization software for four color separation files. It allows designers and prepress companies to quickly and accurately produce documents for problem-free printing. Printers gain the capability to control and improve the printability of files containing four color separations by optimizing the separation according to the actual process/press/paper. Standardized files using InkScript Optimizer will generate reproducible proofs as well as plates and cylinders that allow optimum printability and runability on press.
Preflight, Standardization, & Optimization
Preflight for accurate CMYK separations
InkScript Optimizer’s «Preflight Check» mode performs a detailed analysis of the CMYK separation of images and the contents of PDF documents (images, tints, fonts and vector graphics). Any non-compliant element is detected and listed in a report that can be used internally or shared with clients. The following non-compliancies can be detected:
Standardization for customized corrections
In «Check and Optimize» mode, InkScript Optimizer corrects only elements that have non-compliant color space / separation.
Only areas with excessive TAC that may cause printability problems are corrected without any impact on original colors.
Optimization for perfect printing
InkScript Optimizer’s «Optimize Always» mode allows you to adapt the separation of all the elements of a document to optimize their printing. All visuals in the same publication (editorial, ad 1, ad 2, etc...) will be color separated with the same profile and the same GCR which can be defined in line with your in-house standard or you printer’s specifications.
With an appropriate color separation common to all pages, the risk of set-off and compromise on the press is eliminated, make-ready is greatly facilitated, and the match between print and calibrated proof is perfect.
