No, but you can use Windows encoding softwares like “Parallels” or “Bootcamp”.

Yes, the newest version supports Windows 10.

FOREVER TransferRIP is working on 32 and 64 bit systems. Any problems that may occur, are caused by using different settings.

Here are 3 possibilities:

  1. Check if your background services are working (see attached images for guiding you through windows)
  2. Delete the content of your temp folder
  3. Stop your anti-virus software

You can use the TransferRIP with the following printers:

  • OKI ES7411WT / C711WT / Pro7411WT (A4)
  • OKI ES9420WT / C920WT / Pro920WT (A3)
  • OKI Pro8432WT (A3)
  • OKI C800 Series

TransferRIP is not able to override these settings. That is the reason why it is that important to leave the settings at 0.

TransferRIP users have the advantage to install their printer and start working. If you do not use the TransferRIP, you have to change the settings before you can start.

Make sure that you are really in Step 2 of 5 and not in Step 1, where you only can import the profiles which are needed to use the software

TransferRIP supports the following file format: JPG, TIFF, PNG, PDF, EPS, PSD, BMP

If imported images are having the following issues:

  1. Showing no “pages” (right-hand side of the job list)
  2. No image preview (bottom left)
  3. Displays an icon of a person (left-hand side of the job list)

If all of these errors are happening you should unistall and re-install the TransferRIP.

Delete the content of your temporary files folder. You can use the programm “cleanmgr” by typing it in the search of windows start menu. It is installed on every PC.

Restart your computer and reload your job.

If it is still not working, make sure that your temporary files folder is directly on your Hard Drive (usually C: ). Such crashes may occur due to long folder paths. Please turn off all Anti-Virus and System Boost Software which may be running in the background.

If it is still doesn’t working, you must turn on the background services:

  • Right click on “Computer”
  • Select the last option
  • Click on the right side on advanced system settings
  • Go to the visual effects
  • Change to the middle tab and change the button to background services.
  • Restart the computer and load the job again.

After these steps are complete, TransferRIP will work.

The quickest way to Rasterize an image or design, is by using the FOREVER TransferRIP Software.

Every image need different settings. To find the best settings for your design, you have to test and use the preview feature to see if the result looks like you or your customer want it. After some test you will have enough routine to handle rasterized images even withou checking them before.

Lines Per Inch

It is a measurement of printing resolution. Defined in the TransferRIP by how close together the lines in a halftone grid are. High LPI indicates greater detail and sharpness. The quality of printer device or screen determines how high the LPI will be.

Raster Image Processor

To rasterize an image for white garments, choose “Use Screening as configured as a Mask, recommended for Light Media”. This will delete all white and the bright colours.

The rasterization settings depend on how bright or dark the image is and which style you or your customer prefer.

If you would like to print onto dark garments and your image has lots of dark colors, then the following settings can be used:

  • Choose the Raster (Screening) setting for “Dark Media”
  • Mask: Between 25-28
  • Shadow Tolerance: Between 150-180
  • Dot Shape: Euclidean (Standard Setting), but you can choose your preferred option.

The percentage means the amount of information which will be deleted from your image.

If you have a small mask like 30 or 35, 20% could be too less, because the holes are small and the coating of the B-Paper will melt into them.

I would prefer minimum 24%, but depending on the mask. If you have a mask like 20 LPI, you can also use 10%. If you have a small mask like 30 or 35, 20% could be too less, because the holes are small and the coating of the B-Paper will melt into them.

If you just want to increase the washabilty without deleting that much from the original design, you can also use a percentage of 4 % in combination with 10 LPI Mask.

There is no standard settings. Try and find the best setting.

Yes and No. Each job that you upload will remain in your job list and preserve all settings and changes made. Only by deleting the file from the job list, are all settings lost.

If you want to make images available for future jobs, simply keep the file in your TransferRIP job list. New jobs can be easily uploaded when needed.

Even if you delete the original file from your hard drive, the job will stay in TransferRIP.

The following steps below remove the “click ONLINE” message which appears on the OKI printer menu:

  • Go to Step 5 in the TransferRIP
  • Uncheck the “Custom Media” box
  • Change the “Input Tray” to “Automatic Tray Detection
  • Make sure “Output Tray” is set to “Face Up

Answer:

Do not use a USB cable that is longer than 1.8 Meters (6 Feet).

If your image contains only white and it is being cut off within the TransferRIP preview windows, then please make sure you have saved your image in the CMYK colour mode and not the RGB colour mode.

If your images are being cut-off, like the file is printing the landscape instead of portrait, please try the following:

  1. Delete/Remove the file from the TransferRIP software (So that the file has disappeared from the job list in Step 2).
  2. Next, choose your paper size in the drop-down box at the bottom of the screen (Make sure that the chosen size is the same size as the saved image/design).
  3. Now, re-import your image/design to the TransferRIP software.
  4. Continue through the others steps and make a test print.
  5. Your image should print without being cut-off.

If the above steps haven’t worked, then this issue could be as follows:

  1. The positioning of the paper in the Multi-Purpose Tray is wrong. Rotating the paper will fix this issue.
  2. The USB Cable is too long (click here for more information)

Reason:

When you rasterize your design, you create “holes” in the colors of your image. The material color will show through these “holes” and mix optically with the toner color.

The human eye blends these two colors together to form a mean value. In order to achieve better colors, it is advisable to increase the brightness of the design before rasterizing it. This will counteract this degradation of color and may lead to your desired look. The brighter your image is, the smaller the dots will be.

Make sure that you checked the box “Force Manual Tray and User definied Media Size”.

At this current moment, it is not possible to rotate images within the TransferRIP software. Although this feature will appear in a future version of the software.

Answer:

Try resaving the file by using a different software. For example; Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator

TransferRIP allows you to remove a specific color in your design. Removing this color from the whole design. Files must be saved without backgrounds, in order to keep the a color in the design.

Even if there is no white in the image, white is not removable.

Either you are working with the wrong profile, or you have changed the Media Setting from Transparency to another option.
