At the heart of Lightning TIFF are a wide range of unique and highly optimised high performance algorithms for implementing the standard compression methods required by all high-end workflows. These along with the multi-threading capabilities make Lightning TIFF the output plug-in of choice for the most demanding users and applications.
Taking advantage of the latest multi-core CPUs, Lightning TIFF is multi-threaded so as to provide maximum performance on today’s hardware. This offers the highest performance possible, for last minute production of time critical jobs.
As well as the image formats supported by the standard TIFF plugin, Lightning TIFF also supports tiled, single-file CMYK + Spot color and single-file frame-interleaved TIFF.
As well as the compression formats supported by the standard TIFF plugin, Lightning TIFF also supports CCITT Fax Group 3 1D/2D and Flate.
In addition to the options provided by the standard TIFF plugin, Lightning TIFF provides additional controls for conventional based naming (the ability to place all output from a given job into its own folder and the ability to use the file name instead of the job name) and an extended set of template variables for template based naming.
In addition to per file post-processing, Lightning TIFF also provides per job post-processing. This combined with the ability to place all output from a job into its own unique folder allows for sophisticated customisation by writing post- processing scripts to perform additional tasks.
