File saving as PDF/VT

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have a workflow where PDFs are being saved as PDF/VT files, so when we are pulling them into our Fiery Rip they are causing problems. I have checked the settings in the workflow and PDF/VT is not selected. Has anyone any ideas why this could be?

If you have PDF/X-4 files and you join them together using Core, these are joined to make a PDF/VT file.

If you don't want to have PDF/VT, you can use an optimise node at the begenning of the workflow to convert the files to PDF/X-3 for example - then if you join the files together, the resulting file will not be PDF/VT.

Thanks Jryi, I will give that a go as soon as Freeflow is working again, it is down at the moment.

This could be the source of the issue, from HELP:

Join and PDF/vt jobs

When joining PDF/vt and PDF files, the PDF files are joined as a record within a PDF/vt file. Additionally, the PDF files must be PDF/x-4 compliant.

When joining PF/x-4 files the resultant PDF will be a PDF/vt with each PDF file defined as a record

Thanks David,

 

I have updated the workflow as suggested by Jyri with an optimisation node to resave as non PDFx 4. The help explaination certainly explains the issue succinctly, thanks.

 

Thanks

Simon
