Jim, Brian, Bruce ..... and anyone else that wants to chime in. Kirk and I have talked about doing an article comparing the positive and negative aspects of several of the major RIPs, including but not necessarily limited to QTR, ImagePrint, ColorBurst, PowerX and StudioPrint. I have gathered a lot of the preliminary information and talked with several of the RIP companies but we are still in early stages.
We will concentrate on using RIPs with the wide formt Epson printers with some mention of the 2400 and the new Canon printers (if ny RIPs are available for them when we are ready to go to press) and will discuss RIPs v. native drivers. Test prints will be produced on several diferent papers. Sine I am still in the planning and organizing stages there is not much more to say right now but this thread has underscored for me the usefulness of this article.
Thanks in advance for any and all comments. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
