help with a
« on: April 05, 2010, 12:15:39 PM »
I'm getting a new epson 1400 today, (I've given up on the 3000, for now) my problem is with the rip software. Should i get the upgraded software for my fast rip through http://www.garmentdecoratingsupply.com/FilmMaker-DTP-100-Upgrade-From-FastRIP-FMDTPUPG.htm?productId=62 or should i get the simple seps program from Tom Knight that does a form of halftones but not true halftones, http://advancedtshirts.com/tutorials/categories/11/simple-seps-coreldraw-color-management-color-separations-tutorials.html. the price difference is about a $100 but money is not the problem, the problem is that i don't know which is best for my problem. Any help and/or insight into this problem would be great. I know it seems like a silly question but i would just like to know everyones opinion. Thanks in advance

I would stick with a true rip. Although I wouldn't go with the fastrip, I think the upgrade would be your best option.
Was that a fart?

A number of us run AccuRIP with a 1400. Preston was testing it, and another from CADlink. Photoshop halftones, as I believe is the Advanced Artist thing can be very clean if you remember to use a very high output resolution when converting to bitmap with the halftone option. I use 1200 ppi, no matter what the input resolution was. It makes the dots much cleaner. Check the film output posts from a couple of weeks ago...

Life's a load; you're either pulling it, pushing it, or it.

FastRip is no longer available under that name from what I understand. FilmMaker from Cadlink is a far Superior rip than what FastRip was. I tested AccuRip and found that is did a very good job and seems it would be a worthwhile investment. They also have an upgrade deal to upgrade from other rips. I settled for FilmMaker. It is a little bit more involved than AccuRip but is also a lot more powerful and gives you greater control over the output of your films. At least that is what I found.

i've been using fastrip for 3 years with no problems, now that i have to get another printer it just seems like a huge waste to just get another rip program for 5 or 6 bills. Then i found this upgrade and then simple seps. i dont know..........
