Exporting White and Varnish Channels Within SAi FlexiPRINT RTUV 22 Software (Part 7)

exporting white varnish channels flexiprint

Now that we have the custom White and Varnish channels setup, we will be looking at Exporting.

When it comes to exporting, we want to be mindful of the file format that we use, seeing that not all support custom channels.

Alrighty, guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at exporting our custom channels that we've made in Photoshop so that flexi print can actually understand it. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A. We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're back into the tutorial here. So in Photoshop, if you guys remember from the previous video we created some custom varnish and white channels, make sure we name him to white and varnish. And now we're gonna be exporting this. So now the normal PNG file format will, unfortunately not work as even though it can save channels. It has difficulty with custom channels. So in order to do that, I'm gonna just export this, So I'm gonna go file. I think you can go ex, uh, save as this is the right option. Some programmes. It's export, but for sure, I remember you go file save as and then from the drop down menu of file formats, what we wanna do is locate the tiff file format. It's right here at the bottom TIF or TIFF. Select that. And then from the settings, I'm gonna make sure of what channels is on layers. You don't need to, but I'm just gonna leave everything as it is on default. Then I'm gonna name this, um uh, Grammy PNGW and V for, uh, white and varnish. Click save. It's gonna ask us some options. I'm gonna leave everything at default. Just say, OK, then. This wants to tell us because I included all the layers. It's gonna be bigger than usual, but that's fine. Now, if we go back to our folder, you will see we've got our actual, um, PNG here. And if I open it, it's, uh OK, This previews it well, but the thumbnail you can see it looks a bit strange, but it should be fine in the programme itself. So we gonna just put that to the test. But now, before I drag it in, I saw in the previous videos When we set up the printers, I put both that supported, um, varnish. So I've gone and added another printer one without varnish. To do that, simply go set up at set up. And then the printer we're looking for is the normal. I'll just zoom in here so you guys can see a bit better. It's the DT, a printer XP without the UV. So that one won't have a varnish channel because you might have a print without varnish. So then the process will differ slightly, but the default settings is pretty much the same. The main thing is on V we go here to actual default job properties under the actual, uh, what do you call it? Rental options. The So the ink types where you normally have a white ones, you'll only have a white. And then, yeah, it will be under solid. That is only ch change we'll be making will be that. But now back to the other, uh, printer. I'm just gonna go really drag and drop our new file into it. Got it. Here, go dry Click properties. And then I'm just gonna fit this here to the centre. So we've got our actual one. We can see there is a block, which means the other ones should be there. So now if we go on the preview and I I say preview output channels wait for it to load. Then If we go to white, you will currently see, we've got a white and we've got white on the varnish. And if we go to varnish, OK, we don't have the white but what we're looking for So we want the white to only affect what we make the custom channel to. So in order to do that, what we wanna do is have this programme or this graphics read the channels correctly. So where we be for set the actual, um, white options and varnish options under the actual printer options to, uh, under solid and, uh, under solid for both. We wanna change this now to spot colour. Now, to better understand this spot colour, in many ways is their way of saying channel colours. So this programme sees it as spot. But, um, Photoshop will see it as channels, so we wanna select both of these, set them to spot colour. So if you know you're gonna be working with, uh, a lot of custom channels, then you can set this in your default to spot colours. But I recommend normally leave that under solid. But now we're gonna be sending this to spot colour. Then, if we go back to our preview, wait for the white to load. You should notice that the white is not only on the custom channels we made, which is very convenient. So that means you can exclude white from certain areas if you wanted to or include white. So if I wanted to, I could maybe put it like a white border around this URL or something like that line to simplify things. So now the most important thing like I mentioned is the file format. So what you wanna do is you wanna make sure that your actual when you export it, you export it as a tiff file so that it can input, right? And then next thing is, you wanna make sure you set it from under solid to spot colour, and then everything should be correct, but yeah, otherwise, that is it. On creating some custom channels and Photoshop. And we're also gonna be looking at some bleeds. That is very handy and some finalising. But until then, if we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z a you guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top or right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for. Just simply go here, request the training video, fill in the uniform, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys for watching and cheers.
