    I love the harsh commentary on the lastest trendy but tiresome visuals/soundbites.
    Made me laugh just hearing it read aloud on the radio.
    The video makes it awesome!

    It's one thing to be told you need a contract and you have probably heard that a thousand times for years. It's another thing to experience WHY you need a contract. Now you will never make that mistake...

  • Jdf

    We have a Rip upgrade available that has a JDF enabler version 2.0. What is it the benefit of using JDF in the real world?

    Who is using this? Are clients using and giving printers JDF files yet?

    I have read up a bit at Adobe:
    http://www.adobe.com/products/jdf/main.html

    Is this going to affect prepress in a significant way very soon, or is this something we can wait on?

        Can't hurt to read up on it but I can't see getting much of this yet.

                  It sounds like a cool deal. From what I can gather, a jdf bridges the gap and clears up all the little problems we now have in printing a pdf such as size issues, software issues, etc.

                  But what I wonder is, are we going to have to retro fit our imagesetters, etc for jdf files?
                  Thanks,

                    No such thing as retrofitting anything in printing ....means new hardware for all if it takes off for us here. Be interesting to see if the "really" does what it says. Sounds like a monster headache

                    My biggest thing is when I get an ad floating in a page in PDF format. If I could crop automatically..... Getting a client to define a trim properly, well I'd turn blue and die suffice as to say.

                          That would be cyan, not blue!
