Artifacts when placing an illustrator file into InDesign - extrude and bevel
on May 19, 2006 at 6:17:39 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?

I did get the artifacts to look a little bit better by maxing out the blend steps to 256 in the extrude and bevel settings. However, there is still one annoying line that appears to be the original stroke that was extruded.

Any ideas how to get rid of that line? -- See the following link:
