At A GlanceAgfa has created a new task processor for the preflighting of PDFs. This new task processor is called Apogee Preflight. It performs the same task as the original Preflight task processor that used the Enfocus preflight engine. The new Apogee Preflight task processor will be a standard component of Apogee Prepress. The original (Enfocus) Preflight task processor will become a chargeable option. All customers who currently have the (Enfocus) Preflight will be able to continue to use it at no extra charge.
Applies To::Apogee Manage, :Apogee Integrate, :Apogee Proof, :Apogee PDF & Proof
How It WorksThere is no change in the use of the Apogee Preflight task processor. The look of the parameter set is identical to the original Preflight.
Why Is This Important?Using our years of experience handling PDF processing, we’ve created a preflight process that can go beyond standard profiling and actions. Most of the profiles and actions available in Apogee Preflight are based on what you’re used to using from the original Preflight.
There are additional custom actions and profiles included on the Prepress DVD. A couple of notable ones remove transparency enabling easier PDF creation for digital presses and Apply color settings, allowing export of color mapped PDFs.
