CHILI Publish has launched CHILI Publisher 3.5, which boasts improved functionality and 3D visualisation and raises the bar for online document editing.
We’re always talking with our customers about the challenges they’re facing on the front line, and their feedback is our drive to continuously innovate, said Bram Verniest, CMO of CHILI Publish. The latest version 3.5 of CHILI Publisher really sets the standard in online document editing, making it faster, easier and more effective than ever. Users can expect big things as they implement it, making day-to-day tasks much easier and helping them raise productivity of their operation to the maximum.
3D Folding at the next level
Within the new release, CHILI Publisher brings the 3D Folding functionality that was first introduced in CHILI Publisher 3.0 to a next level, allowing users to fully visualise content in 3D so they can make better-informed design decisions.
The 3D Folding Advanced in CHILI Publisher 3.5 includes:
- Composed materials: combine multiple documents and/or assets in one single 3D model.
- Animation: in addition to animating a document (folding panels), users can now move the camera around the object for a true 3D visualisation. These animations can also use ease-in and ease-out functionality, resulting in a more attractive view.
- Separated preview integration: the 3D preview, previously an option in the workspace,
- can now be loaded separately into a web application.
- Expanded industry standard compliance.
CHILI Publisher 3.5 offers PDF/VT compliance, an international ISO standard that defines the use of PDF as an exchange format optimised for variable and transactional printing. By supporting international standards, CHILI Publisher ensures that users have the best possible experience using the editor in a workflow.
In addition, version 3.5 comes with new IDML export functionality. It allows users to export CHILI Publisher documents to InDesign® Markup Language (IDML), a format that improves the compatibility of files with a wider range of Adobe® InDesign® versions. IDML is an XMLbased format, introduced in Adobe InDesign CS4 for representing InDesign content.2013 – CHILI Publish news release.
CHILI Publisher 3.5 presents users with an improved functionality of datasources. With datasources, print service providers can connect a document to a wide range of datasets, allowing them to create multiple versions of a document with variable content. With version 3.5 users can now search the content of a variable field and preview the shortest, longest or any other record in a dataset. This saves them time in identifying the most complex records and ensure all of them work will with the page layout.
