When visualizing graphics in 3D in Share & Approve, users may select a Finishing Profile from a list of defaults. This Finishing Profile maps separation names to the 3D effects. Our list of default finishing profiles might not cover the names of you separations. In this article, we'll explain how you can write a Separation Mapping to let Share & Approve know how your separation names relate to our defaults.
We'll create a Separation Mapping by starting from an existing mapping.
- First download default.ssm. You may give it another name, but it should have the
- Open the file with a simple text editor. The file contains all the mappings used.
E.g.: All separations starting with "silver" or "silber" in the
"Silver" : ["silver.*","silber.*", "argentum.*"]
'.*' means any number of other characters. If your separation contains the word argentum, rather than beginning with it, you could add:
"Silver" : ["silver.*","silber.*", ".*argentum.*"]
- When all the mappings have been made, save the file and upload it to your Share & Approve site.
- Open a graphical document to visualize it in 3D using the Share & Approve Viewer.
- Click the 3D button in the toolbar. The print finishing widget appears.
- Click the Finishing Profile drop down and select Configure Custom Finishing Profile.
- Select one of the default finishing profiles and click Configure Separation Mapping.
- Select your custom mapping and click OK.
- You have now set up your graphical document to use a finishing profile. If you are the Editor or Approval Master of this file, you can also choose to save the settings. Share & Approve will remember them the next time you open this file.
