Hey Guys -
I’ve been searching and experimenting for the past two days and have read all the threads about ripping to an Onyx Rip on this and other forum sites as well. Hopefully one of you guys can help me out!
I have Onyx 7.2.059 Printhouse Rip/HPZ6100 printer
Please follow me… My client sends us very simple InDesign documents that we have to output signage/backlits from. Basically each sign is set up the same, purple background in InDesign with a “placed” psd image. There are NO effects added to the placed image. When I make the PDFX1a it looks great on my screen, then I rip it to our Onyx. When I view/preflight the file I can see very faintly the “placed” image box, it’s a bit lighter than the rest of the background and when it prints the box is a shade or two lighter than the background. It’s like the transparent “placed” image is really not transparent.
I have tried creating different types of PDFs, I’ve tried all the transparency suggestions I have read about but with no luck… the only thing that does work is recreating in Photoshop or pulling the PDF into Photoshop. I get tons of this work each day and to do this adds twice the time to each job.
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks in advance!!!
