I forgot to ask - what version of FreeFlow Core are you using?
Thanks for coming back to me, the goal is small files that can be emailed, i know thats not possible in some cases, decent screen res would be nice , but mainly the proof shouldnt lose stroke lines, or information that should be there which is what my proofs seem to do quite a lot, it would be nice to be a pdf as well.
What are your goals for a low res proof? Is it to email? soft proof on screen? Is it about the image resolution only or is it about file size?? Can share some ideas and preflights but want to make sure it matches with your goals. There are preflights that can rasterize the entire document (thus flattening) and set to a specific resolution. But depends on how you are using the proof.
Im using the optimise node to create low res versions of the files for proofing
Most of the time it works, but im finding increasingly that strange things are happening to the low res proofs, such as stroke lines get removed, transparencies get flattened when they shouldnt be etc, ive messed about with the settings but nothing seems to improve the reliability, im wondering how everyone else does this, i just need a reliable low res file, maybe it could be done through a acrobat profile, does anyone have one they could share with me?
