When you use Nexus 10.1.2 TotalRIP (PDF RIP), you can:

  • Rip PDF to composite 8bit tiffs proof in the Rasterize Composite Proof activity.
  • Rip PDF to 1bit tiffs for plate making in the Rasterize Separations activity.

Does Ripping PDF to composite 8bit tiffs for proofing and 1bit tiffs for plate making use the same code?


For rasterisation: the same executable is used for both cases (TotalRIP).

For output, different codes are used for:

  • screened output
  • composite output (color management)

Unavoidable differences at the pixel level are also possible because the different outputs are typically at different resolutions.
