Join Mordy Golding for an in-depth discussion in this video Transparency across Adobe applications, part of Illustrator: Seeing Through Transparency.
Before we get into the heart of this course I want to take a moment to focus…on the idea that transparency is what Adobe calls a core technology.…In other words, it's really less of a feature and more of an imaging model that…is used across Adobe applications.…If you think about it, Adobe has many design applications and where possible Adobe…tries to share technology across these applications.…This makes things not only more efficient for the Adobe engineers, but it…also ensures that the things are consistent for us, the people who actually use the software.…
For example, Adobe uses a shared technology called Ace or the Adobe Color Engine.…This color engine drives the color management feature across Adobe applications…and it makes it possible for us to preview color consistently and in the same…way across the different design applications that we use everyday.…Printing and transparency are also shared technologies at Adobe.…What this means for you is A, whether you print your art from Illustrator,…
