How To Use Rainbow

The main function of Rainbow is to launch utilities. The usual steps to run a Rainbow utility are the following:

  1. Add the input files to process to the input file lists.
  2. Make sure each input file is associated to its relevant filter settings.
  3. Make sure the common parameters needed by the utility are set properly.
  4. In the Utilities menu, select the utility to execute.
  5. In the utility's options dialog box (if there is any), set the options specific to the given utility.
  6. Execute the utility.
  7. Review any warning or error message in the Log window.

You can save all your input files settings and options in a Rainbow project file (.rbp extension) with the Save or Save As command in the File menu. Use the Open command to load an existing project.
