Upgrade Path from TCS2 to TCS 3.5

Aug 26, 2011 1:17 PM

Will this work?  It seems like it should, considering there is just a one version step to RH (8 to 9) and FM (9 to 10) but figured I would ask if anyone has tried this yet.

 

Does anyone know if TCS 3.x solves the poor image smoothing (or lack of it) when importing and linking images from FM ro RH?  If the feature for image smoothing is in acrobat then it should be in TCS (but what should be is not always the case of course).

 

Thanks,

    Hi,

     

    it's possible to upgrade TCS 2 to TCS 3.5.

     

    Following Releases/Builds are part of TCS 3.5:
    Photoshop CS 5.1 = 12.1
    Captivate CS 5.5 = 5.5.0.257
    Bridge CS 5.1 = 4.1.0.54
    FrameMaker 10 = 10.0.1.408
    RoboHelp 9 = 9.0.1.262
    Device Central CS 5.5 = 3.5.0.263
    Extension Manager CS 5.5 = 5.5.163
    ExtendScript Toolkit CS 5.5 = 3.6.0.2

     

    Smoothing poor images? Could you give some more detailed information?

     

    - Maike

    Hi terribletowel,

         to start with can you please elaborate are your FrameMaker images is referenced or embeded and what are formats of images you are using in your FrameMaker source.

     

    and to the last part " Why not use the same adobe technology that distiller uses" -- In TCS 3 and even in TCS 3.5 we do get an option to convert the images through distiller route (see Conversion setting dialog) and the images converted thorough this option are of far better quality as compared to images generated with older version of TCS!

     

    moreover many of the image related issues earlier have been addressed in TCS 3 (RoboiHelp 9) so you need not follow up on blogs for solution but its a good idea to keep in mind the recommendations as suggested in blog for your ease I am copying down the urls of the related blogs

    but still would like to answer any other specific query you have

     

     

    Thanks & Regards

    Ashish
