Lynnwood, Washington - ScenicSoft has released Pandora 1.2. New features include a tool for specifying and controlling complex non-rectangular bleed paths and the ability to automatically transform PJTF-based in-RIP trapping settings. Support for the CreoScitex PCF file format enables full integration with the CreoScitex Brisque Pack workflow solution, the variant of the popular Brisque workflow that has been tailored
for the packaging market.
Pandora's new Bleed Edit tool allows the user to draw and edit complex non-rectangular bleed paths by adding, deleting, and moving bleed area points and segments. The tool can also be used to apply a non-rectangular bleed path to PDF files that do not have a transparent background, and it allows such designs to be
appropriately nested. As Pandora bleed paths can be copied and pasted into one or more selected objects, the operator has the choice to edit bleeds before or after execution of the step-and-repeat function.
Pandora 1.2 offers new functionality addressing trapping requirements for packaging-specific prepress workflows. Pandora is presently the only packaging imposition solution that offers a complementary suite of functionality to Adobe in-RIP trapping for this market.
