I have an illustration that needs to be color corrected there are a large amount of layers and folders.
I have been asked to bring the illustration in to PShop and then color correct the objects in CMYK. I would like to keep as much of the layering alive as possible.
I also find that when esportinf as PSD there are some layers / folders that just will not translate in layers. It creates a flat object of that folder.
When i try to copy and paste those objects back into the PS document from AI they do not land in the same place that i would like them to
Inorder to save time i am wondering if there is a way to do this without me having to nudge the shapes that got flattened back into their rightful place.
is there a way to paste them in or have them import in the right place?
any tips to speed this up would be great
Exporting to PSD with layers checked works but if there are many layers Illustrator may not include all of them, I guess due to processing limitations (I'm still with CS5). When this happens I export several copies of the document with smaller number of layers and assemble them back in Photoshop.
You can also do it with Copy/Paste but include in each copied selection the same size box with no fill and stroke encompassing all elements.
Yes is is a viable option, that I hope to do it this way
My main problem is that if I am not able to do this option for proofing reasons..
If the vector art needs to be rasterized how do i maintain the level of layers in photoshop to do color correction there and if there are flattened layers how can i paste in objects to my PSD file without having to worry that layers will not land in their accurate place.
When i copy paste layers from illustrator they dont land in the same place.
thanks for your help so far!
