Today we’re going to cover the proper way for Corel Draw users to prepare a PDF file for Sep Studio™ 4. Although PDF is widely used and very powerful many online art services still provide files as EPS. You can use this approach for downloaded art files, or any art file you have open in Corel Draw.

Simply open the EPS file in Corel Draw then from the File menu, choose Publish to PDF. The “Save as” type is automatically set to PDF for us. Set PDF Preset to Archiving RGB. This is Corel’s preset that auto converts non RGB files to the RGB color space. Simple as that.

Now let’s open our new converted downloaded file in Sep Studio™ 4. It’s instantly and properly separated. We see the original artist added a background color, we don’t want to print that so lets delete that separation and replace it with a non-printing textile color. We also would like an underbase so lets create one, default setting should be fine. Now we’re ready to open the print window.

Everything looks good here, the separations are automatically nested perfectly. So lets print. You’re making films that fast.

Freehand and you, together we got this.
