Origami 3: Light colours become transparent

Joshua Baldwin 10 months ago updated by Vitaly Ovchinnikov 10 months ago 4

 Light colours seem to not display in the on-screen render (Spot colours, pantone and standard colours all seem to be affected in my testing)

I use a lot of block out white over colour backgrounds to add the desired effect.

Here is a test example from Illustrator using a very pale off-white colour.

Please then see below my testing lightly darkening it.

I have reset the Origami settings and restarted my system to no avail. It unfortunately does not resolve this issue for me.
To mask the number of different elements would take some time; and I would consider being able to overlay light-coloured elements important from a visual checking perspective.

Thanks

Thank you. Origami works in "overprint" mode, you can see what artwork it gets by enabling overprint preview in Illustrator. You can see the whites again by disabling overprint fill in attributes window.

I'd like to add, this does not happen on text objects, but it seems to happen to rectangles, compound paths, etc.

I have not yet tested lines and other similar items.

Can you attach a simple AI file, please?

Hello Vitaly, I have mailed a test file to the support email.
