We recently ran into a problem where white vector data from Abobe Illustrator is being interepreted by our rip as a 255,255,254 value when ripping the postcript file output by Illustrator. This results in a very fine c and m dot in the whites when the file is printed.
If we take the same Illustrator PS file, rasterize it in photoshop, and save it as a tiff, we can rip and print it and it shows up as a 255,255,255 value, and prints with no dot.
In both cases, the embedded profiles are the same (Abobe RGB), and the rendering intent is Relative Colormetric. The rip runs on a pc, and the Abobe programs run on a pc.
Anyone have insights into why this occurs?
