A PostScript error offending command setcolorspace points to a problem related to color separations.
I am aware of 3 instances in which this error can occur:
- The error can pop up with some RIPs if a file contains 15 or more spot colors. Reducing the number of colors fixes the issue.
- A setcolorspace error can occur when printing the testpage of Agfa Calibrator 4.01 (a by now outdated application) and setting the do tshape in the calibration setup to ‘Printers default’. Selecting a specific dot shape will solve the problem. This error also doesn’t occur in Calibrator 4.0.
- The first version of the Agfa Taipan 3.1 RIP can generate a PostScript error ‘undefined’ offending command ‘setcolorspace’ when it has to use in-rip separation to process a PDF or PostScript file. There is a little PostScript file available from Agfa to solve this problem.
