So, i send the job to the rip with live transparecy (v 1.7 or whatever) and it craps out with a memory error.
I've done it with the DCS method and that works just fine. Is there a way to do this with Pitstop?

Like I said, there are several ways of doing it. The one I demonstrated above would be the most common without Pitstop. Jim Kings method works, as well as deleting any raster data in a PDF, then placing the Vector portions in InDesign, and placing the raster images back in the InDesign document.The most destructive, and last resort, would be to completely rasterize the PDF at a high enough resolution to minimize bitmapping anomalies.With Pitstop, there are several more options.
In pitstop, there's also the place pdf method (under the edit menu)...I've only found this to work if the images are the same size....and in the dialog box you use the "grab area from selection" box....and it strangely leave the "selection" (original image) in place after placing the new one over top.... actually, just used this today...I had an image that wouldn't open in photoshop (again with the indexed RGB thing)...so I did a crop (using the pitstop coordinates) to crop out all the rest of the page, opened the cropped pdf in photoshop, converted it and saved it to my desktop, then opened the original pdf file (full page version), selected the original image (that wouldn't open) and used the place pdf (using grab area from selection)....worked like a charm!! I did have to cut the new image and delete the old one, tho...
