PowerRIP Editor's review

This review was originally posted on almost hesitated to buy this software because of these shoddy reviews so I felt the need to clear things up after trying the demo and buying Powerrip 7.4.1 for my Epson R1800. It is great software and the wealth of options and quality are both exactly what I wanted for accurate low-cost proofing for press jobs. It's a little finicky to set up but once it's going, it's solid and the colour accuracy for pseudo-press proofing at home is really what sold me. I had an issue with overprints not working but the tech support responded the same day to tell me the fix for it (use Press Proof setting) and it was resolved. Otherwise Postscript 3 support from my CS3 Indesign and Illustrator are good but I have managed to get bad renderings with extremely complex files that were basically just set up to see how crazy a PS L3 job I could send to this (gradients overprinted by masked multiply with type, etc) but fortunately, for most needs it won't hiccup. Combine this program with a cheap printer profiling app/hardware like Colorvisions PrintFix Pro and you've got a great little home proofer.
