    Hi Folks,
    Am printing some 7'h x 2'w raster images from Flexi 8. Am going to laminate these so I have to contour cut them. When I put my contour around the rasters it follows the slightly jagged edge of the image. Is there any way to "smooth" the contour line?
    Thanks

    In Corel I would reduce the nodes or hand digitize the area you want to contour. Some RIPs have an automatic contour selection where you can set the offset.

    Simple. Assuming that you used Effects->Contour Cut, separate the contour from the object. Now you can tidy up the line that represents the contour using the standard node editing tools. The line will remain a contour line regardless of how you mess with it. Unless you invoke Arrange->Contour Cut->Release Contour Cut.

    Thanks very much Bob. I new there had to be a way to do it in Flexi. The more I use this software the more I am very impressed with it.

    Thanks for the responses everyone.
