I am working in 5.5 and have a 3D revolved globe object with a map art applied. It is currently in A2 art board size and I need to increase to A0. When I scale the object I get "The combination of artwork size and resolution exceeds the maximum that can be rasterized." I have tried adjusting the rasterize setting and the map art. Is there anything else I can try?
Hi Mike and Wade
Thanks so much for your response!
Yes, I know this is a very large size. I first produced the file in A2 size and had no revolve rastering problems. The vendor increased the PDF ( which is exported by third party and have no comtrol how it is exported) size to A0 and printed the poster which looks blothy in the gradients and drop shadows. The poster is being printed at 72 dpi for cost reasons and I have no control over that either.The vendor recommended to increase art size to A0 and claims that if the file input RIP to the printer is the same size as the output size, the blotchness will not happen. This has been the third test run, see below about second run.
Yes, I have changed the Rasterizing setting to 72 ppi in the Effects drop down and it didn't help. The map art is just meridian lines that wrap around the globe that I created as a symbol in u. I have tried playing with that too.
Could it be Illustrator choking on the A0 size or memory problems on my iMac to handle?
More info, that might help. The second test run of the poster was from a 150 MB Photoshop A0 file and printed perfect. The vendor requested a vector base file due to the size and complexity of the psd file, apparently problems RIPPING to the printer.
I was hoping for a simple answer and didn't want to get into details at first posting. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
