FilmMaker enhances and streamlines your Epson print applications and screen preparations, and (*) provides Variable Dot Halftone (V-dot) support to ensure reliable reproduction for the loaded media, image resolution, etc.

The net results are higher quality separations that can be produced in less time. Media profiles in FilmMaker are painstakingly crafted to obtain high quality output that account for absorbency characteristics of the media, underinking conditions (i.e., pin-holing), and overinking conditions (i.e., bleeding). * - The Epson Photo Stylus R1800 does not support V-Dot technology.
