I have a pie chart - drop shadow on the pie circle, as well as a drop shadow on the pie slice. Offset printing RIP is deleting the pie shadow - Prepress claims because of a known error that drop shadow will not overprint a spot color. Any ideas - better yet, any solutions that have come across?
try saving your file as .ai PDF and EPS --then place all 3 on a page and ask them to rip the file--see which holds together--also--what Postscript level is their RIP?
Did that yesterday and none worked. They brought it into PS and worked it that way - They used PS level 3 to RIP. I am trying to build the graphic in elemental layers at this point, but holy cow!
Did they flatten the transparency or try to give them the file pre separated in Acrobat using print to postscript host based separation to .ps and distill.
