    Color Variance when importing PDFs with Transparency Masks

    anotherheadx Level 1

      Hi, I have an Illustrator CC PDF with multiple pages and several user defined spot colors and on some pages an item containing transparency masks.

       

      The problem arises with color variance between the pages with and without the object containing the tx masks as they are imported into InDesign.

       

      Looking at the page in InDesign with the described object, swatches imported from Illustrator no longer match the placed PDF.

       

      Without the tx mask, the color swatches do match from the placed Illustrator PDF to the swatch in InDesign.

       

      What's going on?
