  • 1-bit TIFF compression for FlexRIP input

    I'm struggling with a client at the moment. Anyone know for sure what modes of 1-bit TIFF compression the FlexRIP input understands. I see on Esko's support site that the output supports the usual LZW and CCITT Group 4 but those seem to be failing. Thoughts?

    I'd try Packbits.

      Describe the failing... any error messages?

        Love to describe failing but I can't. The error is on the client's end and information is 5th or 6th party coming back rather than grunt-to-grunt. People have an overwhelming tendency to describe what they think the solution to the problem is rather than objectively describing the problem anyways so I can only act on best guesses. According to manufacturer's documentation CCIT Group 4 is supported in and out of both systems and I know has a great compression ratio on out kind of work. Just looking for direct experience from others to support or dispute that finding.

          I guess all I have to add then is that we've been outputting using G4 compression for years without problem.... not very helpful to you, I imagine.

            Not entirely unhelpful. Affirmation that the G4 is ubiquitous and bullet-proof for many helps me put the actual compression algorithm low on the list of probable suspects.

            Thanks.

              If you get a hold of any error messages or logs with more details, pass them on.
