Vector file processing options

Processing options for vector files.

Vector file processing

Where: Channel | Input File Formats | Other Formats tab

Here you can configure how vector files should be processed. By default the files will be moved directly to the global UNKNOWN folder, but you may also copy the file to the output folder, applying all processing not including manipulation of the file data. Hence, files may be routed, captioned (as the caption is stored in a sidecar file), and renamed according to the channel’s settings. If the FotoStation data option is enabled (can be enabled under Channel | Enable features tab), a preview may also be created if Color Factory can successfully open and read the file. A third option is to create a bitmap of any existing preview. When processing EPS files complete with a preview in the header, Color Factory will extract this preview and store it in the output folder. (The original EPS is lost unless the original input file has been preserved in a separate folder – see Advanced input options)

Finally, you may choose to render a bitmap from the input file and store it in the output folder. In the event that a bitmap cannot be rendered, the file will be moved to the UNKNOWN folder.

This functionality is available in Color Factory Enterprise only.
