This is a tutorial I wrote several years ago outlining the steps needed to use QuadTone RIP to create digital negatives for alternative process printing. For those who want to achieve the highest level of control over the digital negative process, the QuadTone RIP process still has no equal, albeit at the expense of a steepish learning curve. This tutorial is my attempt at creating a systematic way to use the QuadTone RIP driver for making negatives (and positives).
This is a somewhat dated pt/pd printing manual. It was written right before digital negatives really hit their stride. Consequently, some of it seems a little quaint at this point. The formulas and general information have not changed, however.
