SimRip2 – Halftone software for Adobe Photoshop®.
Create printable halftones from CMYK and Spot color channels simply and easily in Adobe Photoshop®. Convert any color separation up to 14 colors to a ready to print, single document with custom halftones .
How it works
Launch the script from an open document and SimRip will display it’s main dialog. Enter the values you prefer for each channel, or just click ok and use the default settings. SimRip will create a new document, with all the original color channels, in high resolution halftones. SimRip2 handles up to 14 channels per document.
Under the hood
SimRip starts by creating a new output document at the resolution set in the options dialog. Each channel in the document is then converted to high resolution bitmap, also using the values selected in the dialog. The converted channels are placed in the new document, using the original color values and settings.
Halftone software for custom printing
Ready to Print
Channels generated by the SimRip script can be printed directly onto film using an Inkjet printer, and used for making high quality halftone screens. Files generated by SimRip can be considered as part of the printing process, like files generated by a Rip.
In addition to the default dot size and angle settings, custom bitmap settings for all channel conversions can be modified by checking a Show Dialogs box. This option allows for a wide range of creative solutions to printing multi-channel documents.
SimRip even includes a transfer function option, to help dial in the perfect output.
It just works
Simple and effective, SimRip2 gets halftones under control.
