Vector Halftones, Live Colour Control + Filters
Vector halftones | Live colour adjustments | Filters | Pre-press adjustments | Photoshop compatible settings
Made up of two key components PHANTASM makes light work of much sought after vector halftones and tricky pre-press colour adjustments. Easily adjust vector artwork, text, effects and embedded images with curves control (just like Photoshop!) directly in Illustrator. With user defined adjustments to ensure a fast workflow and maximum creativity.
Common Color Controls
All the essential adjustments including Brightness, Contrast, Curves, Levels and Exposure. Adjust all your embedded artwork in a few clicks. Now you can fine tune and accurately control your design and see instant variations. If you’ve ever adjusted color in Photoshop, you’ll be immediately familiar with these tools. Expect to see Photoshop equivalent results which are made easier with settings exchange.
Advanced Color Controls
Control individual channels including transparency (alpha) and spot inks. You can adjust the profile of drop shadows and glows for a much more realistic result. Also includes pre-press options such as white overprint removal and rich black conversion.
Quickly create a perfectly scalable halftone effect based on any underlying artwork. Be as creative as you want – each halftone “dot” can be circular, square, a line, text characters or any symbol present in the artwork. A range of pre-sets give every possible control needed for posters through to T-shirt design and security printing.
Tool Function: Effects and Filters
The core tools are live (non-destructive) with effects and permanent filters allowing you to adjust color in Illustrator for vectors, text and embedded images.
Filters allow easy automation, including batch processing, through standard Illustrator actions to instantly replicate color adjustments.
