Raster image processing (RIP) software is necessary for printing garments with digital direct-to-substrate and direct-to-garment technology. Typically bundled with the equipment, the RIP software essentially acts as a translator to communicate between the computer and the printer. Its main function is in color control, taking files displayed in RGB color mode and reproducing them in a CMYK system.
