The company has added support for the Mac OS (X 10.7) Lion operating system to PitStop Pro and PitStop Server. Version 10 Update 3 of both PitStop Pro and PitStop Server now includes new channel remapping capabilities which allow users to easily replace an unwanted spot colour with the correct spot colour, remove a spot colour channel altogether, convert a CMYK colour to a spot colour, or convert a spot colour to CMYK as appropriate.
Printing firms are still receiving PDF documents that contain unwanted or incorrect spot colour separations, said Leen Vanmaele, Product Manager. In PitStop Pro 10 Update 3, Remap Channels can be accessed through Remap Colours within the Global Changes menu and are also accessible from within Action Lists meaning that the functionality can also be used in PitStop Server. In addition, the PitStop Pro Inspector panel contains interactive Channel Remap functionality within the Separations section. Making this important capability available from a variety of menu hierarchies as well as through Action Lists helps streamline complex prepress workflows, adds Vanmaele.
PitStop 10 Update 3 adds extra functionality to the Snap to Color Action List, allowing users to replace a specific CMYK colour with a spot colour, or vice versa, while honouring original density specifications. For example, orange in CMYK can be replaced with a spot colour ‘orange’, keeping the visual representation accurate to the original designer intent.
PitStop Pro 10 update 3 and PitStop Server 10 update 3 can by downloaded as free updates for all existing PitStop 10 users from www.enfocus.com.
