DigitalView showcased FFEIs new RealPro Toolkit software at Propak Africa which took place from 12-15 March.
Aimed at design agencies, trade-shops and converters, RealPro Toolkit increases productivity, and standardises document structure from design concept to production ready files, regardless of the print process.
RealPro Toolkit consists of over 12 modules designed to address specific pre-press workflow requirements such as file editing and preparation, colour management, trapping and step and repeat tasks. Features also extend to specialist tasks such as cylinder repeats, patterns and artwork pre-distortion, all displayed in a user friendly interface.
Supporting all industry standard file formats, RealPro Toolkit integrates seamlessly into any existing workflow and is highly optimised for APPE-based solutions, such as FFEIs RealPro Workflow. All linked data remains live inside the final stepped PDF, enabling the 1up file to be easily replaced, and modules such as step and repeat, and trapping, can all be edited from within the workflow. This provides users with flexible data that is less prone to errors and quick to process in APPE-based solutions.
It provides a total solution to the challenges within the pre-press cycle, efficiently increasing productivity and standardising document structure, from design concept to error free production ready files, regardless of the print process.
RealPro Toolkit is compatible with any existing workflows, bringing all the functionality of high end workstations within Adobe® Illustrator®. RealPro Toolkit provides features such as file editing and preparation; colour management; trapping; and nesting/step and repeat and can also be extended for specialist tasks such as cylinder repeats, patterns and artwork pre-distortion.
