If you want TIFF output, then most any RIP will do, but the 
output won't be that editable, as it will just be a bitmap. 
 If you want editable output, then you want to convert to something 
like AI format etc.

IN the PD world, I believe there is an adjunct to GhostScript, 
called ps2ai, or something, that can do this.

In the supported world, Transverter Pro from Techpool can handle 
most file formats and convert between them.  PS is just one 
of many.  They are at 1463 Warrensville Center Road, Cleveland,
Ohio, 44121-2676.  Tel 216 291 1922, fax 216 291 1915.

This topic has cropped up three times this year.  Should it 
be added to the FAQ?
