DK&A Trapper

application for high-quality object-based trapping

Trapper 2.1's high-quality object-based trapping technology is now accessible as a fully automated batch process which accepts pages, including EPS graphics, from other sources.

Trapper 2.1 also adds the ability to automatically color separate trapped documents and output them directly to a wide range of imagesetters. Version 2.1 is an international version in addition to English, it also supports French, German, Italian and Spanish. And it also supports Color Central and Helios image servers.

The first external source supported by Trapper 2.1's automatic batch trapping is QuarkXPress®. Yes, QuarkXPress has some internal trapping capabilities, but it cannot trap embedded EPS files such as drawings created in Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand. Trapper 2.1 solves this problem by enabling QuarkXPress users to easily and automatically create high-quality object-based traps for all objects contained in a page, including embedded EPS files.

Trapper 2.1 can color separate files after it traps them, so trapped files no longer need to be color separated in another program. An Trapper QuarkXTension lets application for high-quality object-based trapping users set custom trapping and ink settings for a range of printed pages from within QuarkXPress To associated trapped pages with their high resolution images. And, Trapper can now resolve OPI (Open Prepress Interface) comments, removing the need to OPI servers downstream.
