Wasatch SoftRIP, now at version 6.8, features a new Separations mode that’s designed to detect the correct spot color and process separations to produce for incoming jobs automatically. Wasatch says it also offers enhanced support for dye sublimation and textile printing, enhanced support of custom inksets for most popular printers, improved handling of PDF files that involve transparency, and more. Another upgrade was made in the way SoftRIP supports custom inksets for popular printers. In past versions, users needed an instrument to help produce CIE XYZ data in the inkset-creator window. For many configurations, Wasatch explains, this was an unnecessary obstacle because those numbers are only used for the screen display. In Wasatch SoftRIP Version 6.8, the inkset creator allows users to enter colors with a color-selector tool—a process that Wasatch explains is much more convenient for users who need to configure custom inksets. The company reports that version 6.8 also includes dramatic improvements to the handling of PDF files that involve transparency and notes that Press Curves and Calibration Curves are now available in all editions of Wasatch SoftRIP 6.8, not just in the SP Edition.
