This process template section determines the output resolution and how the system handles spot colors during imposition output.
Select the job ticket processor (JTP) to use for rendering.
This list is available when an output device format is selected in the Output To list.
Available when the Device Resolutions box is unavailable.
Available when the Device Resolutions box is unavailable and mixed resolution values are allowed for the output format selected in the Output To list.
Select the process color model to use for output.
To set the number of shades of gray to output, select 1 for screened data or 256 for continuous tone data. When 1 is selected, the Calibration & Screening section of the refine process template is available for input.
Available when the output format selected in the Output To list supports separated output and DeviceCMYK is selected in the Color Model options.
Output Separation Handling
Determines how spot colors should be handled during imposition output..
The list of values varies, depending on the output format selected from the Output To list.
Always Use Color Combiner to Convert Spots
This check box is available when Output Separations Handling is set to Convert separations to process.
When this check box is cleared, the renderer handles the conversion of spot colors to process colors if the following conditions exist:
If the above conditions are not met, the Color Combiner will be used, even if the Always Use Color Combiner to Convert Spots check box is cleared.
It is recommended to always select this check box.
This check box appears in both the Render section and the ColorConvert section. Changing it in one place changes it in the other.
Dielines Overprint Other Content
This check box is cleared and unavailable if the Do Separations check box is cleared and unavailable.
The Dielines Overprint Other Content check box is available for the following outputs:
Note: You must load the color library that contains your Dieline color definition in both the Refine and Output Process templates.
Select this check box to enable anti-aliasing, and then in the at Ratio list, specify a ratio for anti-aliasing.
Fail if font problems detected
Select this check box to fail the output process if a file has missing fonts.
Ignore Embedded Fonts in Marks Files
Select this check box if you want Prinergy to ignore embedded fonts in a marks file and to look for the fonts in the
Convert Text to Paths
This check box converts fonts to outlines before a file is RIPed.
Note that when you select the Convert Text to Paths check box, you will have text appear fatter on low-resolution proof output. You can overcome this appearance problem by either:
Note: This check box is only available for raster output formats (
Overlay Versioned Content
This box applies to Layered PDF Versioning.
Versioning Proof Mapping Color
This box applies to Layered PDF Versioning.
Restrict output of layers/versions with errors
This check box applies to Layered PDF Versioning. Select this check box to print the selected layers/versions but not the error layers/versions. For information, see the Versioning chapter in this guide.
Print LPV-generated X marks on output
This check box applies to Layered PDF Versioning. If a version with error is selected for output, and you select this check box, then a red X will be printed on the version output using the spot color or converted to CMYK as defined in the process template. If you selected Restrict output of layers/versions with errors check box, this check box is unavailable. For information, see the Versioning chapter in this guide.
Complex job mode (use with caution)
Select this check box to process complex jobs that would otherwise fail during the RIP process, such as map jobs or PDF files with very high resolution bitmaps. This option should not be used for normal jobs that can be RIPed successfully without it, because RIPing with this option may take longer to process. RIPing complex jobs with this option may take many hours to process although the jobs will succeed in outputting.
Non-fatal PDF error handling
Select one of the following options:
Note: Regarding the font related error handling. APPE 3.x has become stricter with fonts that have invalid data, but the error can be suppressed with the Ignore invalid font data errorssetting. This setting should be used with caution, because there may be cases where the invalid font data will cause rendering problems (such as font missing on output). If you decide to use this option, check your output carefully. Anecdotal evidence shows it is typically safe to ignore the invalid font errors.
When using the Detect all errors setting, as of Prinergy 8.0 the actual font name is printed in the processing history message, but note the following limitations around the messaging:
Tip: To find each unique offending font you could outline each font and try to output again, until all invalid font data is resolved. Alternatively, set the output process template to ignore invalid font data, and scrutinize your proofs.
Type an integer between -22 and +22.
