Swap Channels (ink mapping)
Capable of being applied to all vector artwork and images (embedded and linked), control of inks has never been easier and more flexible. This is available as a live effect in addition to filters.
Displays a "temperature map" of your artwork based on ink coverage, clearly highlighting areas which require correction. Pre-sets allows the operator to quickly examine composite or individual channels for one or more target devices. Numeric reporting means it's possible to track and check how artwork adjustments can affect coverage and cost.
Works in combination with Phantasm functions such as Curves helping avoid major headaches!
Screen printers love it. Security printers find it invaluable. If you prepare print artwork, you could also benefit from both viewing and fully separating your artwork directly in Illustrator. Examine, correct and output all print plates with ease.
