    Running a 5mb file through 10.5, and it is crawling along. It has been ripping for over 5 minutes and it is only at 90%?? Any thoughts, never had an issue like this?

    If this is a postscript file (PS, PDF, or EPS) there would be nothing unusual about this. Postscript files often contain effects that are highly compute-intensive for RIPs to calculate, and this tends to takes more time.

    If the file is raster-based (pixels), such as TIF or JPG, it might be indicative of a lack of available resources on the host computer (RAM/ HD space, CPU).

    It is an eps file, just seemed strange i have never noticed it running that slowly before. Especially with such a small file.

    Its not only the file size that will effect rip time but also the actual size of the print, a 4'x8' sheet takes longer to rip than a 4"x8" due to the amount of dots per inch.
