My folio is created using PDF default, as is the single smooth scrolling article it contains.
the indesign file uses a large background image (PSD) and text created in layers over the top, as well as MSO containing text.
The result in Adobe Content Viewer on ipad is completely rasterized? I dont see the point in having PDF (which allows pinch & Zoom), if the zoomed result is pixelated?
anyone got any guidance or general tips about this? Can I control the resolution that rasterization produces somehow?
I believe all content within scrollable frames or MSO will get rasterized, and text with text-effects applied. (so if you have any drop-shadow or other effects on the text, all of the text will be rasterized)
If you have the text by itself it shouldn't get rasterized tho, even if it is in a smooth scrolling article.
I would recommend you to avoid putting the text in an MSO. Maybe you can have the text on a layer under, and have a MSO-state hiding it at first with something covering it?
Hope it helps.
Smooth scrolling articles longer than two pages will be rasterized. This is a known limitation.
Either create single pages or shorten the article but anything in the overlays will still be rasterized.
