Output Factory

2.4.13
21 November 2019

Automate printing and exporting from InDesign.

Overview

Output Factory automates printing and exporting from Adobe InDesign. Batch print, export as single pages with variable file names, output layer versions, update modified links on the fly, preflight InDesign files before output, output to several formats at once, and much more.

Just select the InDesign documents, adjust settings, and Output Factory will do the rest for you automatically. Keep working with other programs while Output Factory processes InDesign files in the background. Or let Output Factory work while you're on a lunch break. Or leave it working overnight to output hundreds of documents, and pick up the job when you return in the morning.

Features
  • Batch output InDesign files with a click of a button
  • Supports print. PDF, PostScript, EPS, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, Flash, INX, IDML, EPUB and HTML
  • Export as single pages
  • Output files to multiple formats at once
  • Layer versioning: output layer combinations as single files
  • Variable output file names
  • Preflight InDesign files before output
  • Run scripts before/after processing (AppleScript/JavaScript)
  • Update modified links automatically
  • Process InDesign books (.indb)
  • Preflight final PDF with Acrobat Pro droplets
  • Send output files automatically over Internet and locally

What's new in Output Factory

Output Factory has streamlined my workflow from the moment I started using it. I've been running a small design/photography business for around 6 years now. I'm a big Indesign user so I love the way this simply integrates with it. Just recently had to send 20 separate PDF proofs to a client. PDF'ing each one is a little time consuming especially when I secure each PDF with a password. Output Factory takes care of all of that for me. I simply add the files I want to PDF, hit EXPORT AS A PDF and away it goes. Recently I also had a whole heap of INDD files that someone else needed but they're on an older version of Indesign than me? No problem. I loaded all the files up into Output Factory and it automatically converted them all to IDML files, saving my sanity. I still haven't even touched the surface with this program. But I am finding it is a massive time saver and I did get sick and tired of the same repetitive tasks. I've even set up an Action that allows me to convert a logo into different formats. Each day I am finding something else it saves time. I wish I found this application sooner. Very friendly and efficient support too. I cannot recommend this software highly enough.

This is one of these apps that save you so much time that you don't want to miss it anymore.
We use it to make PDFs for all purposes, to save images with specific filenames for all purposes and a lot more.
The support is one of the best I have ever seen. Very responsive, usually they answer your mails in a few hours, in all cases my problems were solved.

Would give 6 stars if possible.

I've been using this for a good few months and hand on heart, this product has saved me hours! I had 30 adapts to do, simply revising a size and removing finishes for cheap reprints, being able to output all the PDFs in one go when all 30 were done enabled me to get the job done in one day! And I use this mostly at it's most basic level, simply running out PDFs, there are so many feature, it's like Adobe have made an InDesign Extended version. Updates are regular, the developer is one of the most responsive I have ever come across, there isn't anything left to add! Brilliant in concept and even more brilliant in use!

I use OutputFactory to save all or some pages as PNG image from InDesign Layouts. The main reason: all files have proper names because of the flexible file naming features. Unbelievable but true: there is no comparable possibility "out-of-the-box"! But even if Adobe might update the build-in possibilities - there is much more to compare with this software. If you don’t want to spend the money - you might be satisfied with a script solution with simple export. http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm?event=extensionDetail&extid=1254518&PID=4169666#

I'm assuming this is replacing BatchOutput? It's almost the same UI and it's the same icon

That's true, as stated in the product description (albeit in the very end), Output Factory is a new major version of BatchOutput. Thanks, Leo Revzin -- Zevrix Solutions Solutions for Graphics, Print & File Delivery www.zevrix.com
