Well, it's because she's still using Quark and saving all PDFs to TIFFs.

I've explained how bad of an idea that is but since they are doing a redesign in a few months...

I swear I've heard that before.

that was 4 years ago. Now we are the only one's that will take their job  :rotf:  >:(

Ran into a strange pdf today, it looks normal but it's almost choking the rip.

Made by a packaging company that would normally not do offset. They insisted on doing their own trapping so the traps are built in. Therefore I am using no trapping at the rip. The label is 9x12 inches, it's running 4up. One image, 300dpi, the rest vector.

It was generated by ESKO Automation Engine.

Can't figure out why it's taxing the rip so bad but am thinking it must be the built in traps or something.

What does it look like in wireframe? Is it a overly complex design?

They don't do offset work but are insisting on their trap settings....   ::)

does not look overly complex in wireframe mode. Seen a lot worse.

If it's Esko, the trap areas could be/probably are embedded tifs, made to emulate transparency. Works ok in the Esko workflow, but maybe doesn't play well with others.

Right, but it ripped ok, looks ok on preview.

The printed sample and proof supplied both had schoastic screening. We dont have that option on our rip but our proof visually looked about 98 percent matched to theirs. I was suprised it was so close.

I had posted about this on another post regarding reflex blue.

Strange thing is, with this pdf to proof, the reflex blue proof on the 8 color HP proofer we have really DOES look like reflex blue, not muddy or purpley like I have seen before. I had to pinch myself and wonder why I had never seen a good reflex blue on. proof before.

I think I see why it took so long to rip.

There are billions of nodes on the trap strokes. I am assuming that's it however we did NO trapping and that's what usually eats up the time.
