Corel or Illustrator -> .ps file -> Acrobat Distiller (PDF/X-1a) -> .pdf file
It's most bulletproof way.
Hi to all,
I have readed sever post but first of all the question is: what kind of RIP have you? After this question it's possible to explain how is better to creating PDF document.
A lot of program (like COREL for example) doesn't create a good internal structure for pre-press PDF and if the RIP is like Harlequen 7.2 or more old, is very important to have a good postscript for post processing with distiller and ONLY distiller of Adobe.
So, What kind of RIP have you?
corel can create pdf to....it's great
I use foxit to print directly to pdf.
I prefer making PDF file from corel is PDF profie pdf/x3 in this all transparency gets flattened and RGB Image converts into CMYK but u have to check that all text shouldn't come beneath transparency or image otherwise vector or text get convert into image
why iam pointing text as text looks more crooked when its converted
try some sample test by changing pdf profile and RIP it
u should know what transparency ur RIP can handle
The pdf file from CorelDRAW turns out correct, only if in CorelDRAW file previously cleaned all effects
I can save PDF/4 or pdf/1 directly from Corel or Illustrator,,
work with corel ten years and never heard that it is possible to automate this process
Doro Pdf is an option.
i use wiht some layouts to send a costumers, but to rip I never used.
is important to know that some rips do not support publishing corel, so you need the pdf through a virtual printer
Preview does this on the mac, a fairly simple process
Print to PS format, Use the Dietiller Conver to PDF.
agree. direct from the software (corel, photoshop) is still the best. although personally, we use backstage software by esko.
