In the past we had the ability to use Color Splitter SW on FFPS
Color Splitter was able not only to split Color and BW pages from the job but also to insert BW pages in their correct positions from the Color engine Inserter during Color pages printing.
I read (very) old posts on this forum telling it was not possible to do the same with FFC but I would like to know the actuel status with FFC 6.1 ?
Thanks in advance for your comments
FreeFlow Core has a "Color Split" capability. Here is a description from HELP of the capabilities and below a screensnap of the controls:
Thanks a lot for your quick answer.
Sounds really interesting.
You are talking about job ticket. Is it jdf ticket ? I forgot to mention in my previous post that both color and BW engines are Fiery driven...
FFCore primarily supports Xerox print engines. Many of these systems are fronted by EFI. If your system is one of these we use xpif to communicate job ticketing. FFCore also supports a small number EFI fronted non-Xerox printers using jmf-- see Release Notes below for the list.
I've installed a demo version of FFC on my laptop and use Color Splitter.
As expected it generates 2 jdf files and split job in 2 files .
As I said I'm running my tests on Fiery for Iridesse (FS350 Pro).
Unfortunately , despite InsertSheet JDF command in JDF tickets there is no mixmedia nor media name defined in job properties (on Fiery Command Workstation)
Hope you could help me
I can send you jdf tickets and my job
If one is submitting to an Irredesse, IPP/xpif should be used to communicate job ticketing. It should work.
As for using JMF/JDF with Color Split, it is not supported. From the FFCore Release notes:
Under Non-Xerox Printers
The Color Split component is not supported.
Thanks for your quick answer !
Just to be sure to understand :
- If I submit JDF (Via Fiery Hot folder) it wont work
- But If I submit files to Fiery/Iridesse via IPP/xpif it should work ?
But what about xpif ? It insn't supported by Fiery ?
Waiting for your answer
EFI/Irredesse supportes xpif. EFI supports xpif for Xerox production print systems.
I am having trouble understanding why one would use color split with EFI/Irredesse -- just send one job.
Thanks for your answer.
Good question why Iridesse is used for that purpose...
Well, I'm freelancer working on project for one of my customers.
In real life there will be one color + B&W engines involved, but for my tests I have "only" an Iridesse at customer site available.
I will try sending jobs to Iridesse using IPP then and let you know
