Artifacts when placing an illustrator file into InDesign
on Apr 22, 2006 at 3:24:54 pm

I'm going to go mad! I have created a logo in Illustrator that looks good, but when I place it into InDesign, I get streaks and artifacts. The logo was created using the Illustrator's "extrude & bevel" effect.

Also, I plan to use this logo on the web, on computers, and in print so I will be creating both RGB and CMYK versions. What's the best was to get a closer color match when creating in illustrator for both Web & Print.

Below are links to the AI file and some screenshots that demonstrate my problem. P.S. the screenshots are a little pixelated because these are JPGs. Notice the verticle "streaks" though.

Any ideas?

Usually won't translate. Try expanding everything first.

Thanks thumbslinger, i'm sorry i am a noobie to InDesign, so I don't quite understand. . . .

Perhaps I should have uploaded the InDesign File?
Here is the link:

No worries...I meant in Illustrator to use Expand feature. But, I opened your files and saw what you meant.

I saw the marks in Illustrator as well as InDesignCS. I raterized the Illustrator file and the lines dissappeared.

Unless you have to have a vector file, I'd just rasterize the Illustrator file for placement in Illustrator and save the vector for any edits.

However, if you need to have vector placed, I'd just make gradients to emulate the extrusion. It will be a less complicated eps file and InDesign shouldn't choke on the interpretation.
