I'm laying out a composition in AI CS3, using a placed PSD file, and I'm getting not satisfactory results per the effects overlay quality. I hope you'll be able to help me out.
Image 1: This is the PSD file: 2 layers: (1) a blue background and (2) a piece of plastic with multiplied drop shadow.
Image 2: Now, I remove the background layer and save the PSD file that contains only the plastic frame with the Drop Shadow effect
Image 3: Then I place it into AI CS3 composition, which has its own background object (a rectangle filled with identical blue). The shadow result is mediocre, even though the entire chain seems to be CMYK all the way through.
What can I do to get the same results in AI?
