I have an old Freehand file and it has a rectangle with the Pantone
187 CVC. I use 2 different ways to update with multiple versions of Illustrator:
I export the Freehand file as an
.epsfile and open it with Illustrator CS6. I select the rectangle, I go to the swatches panel and effectively see it is
187 CVC. I double click the icon of the Pantone color and it gives me spot color
C:0; M:90,98; Y:72,16; K:23,53.
I export the Freehand file as an Illustrator 7 file. I open the Illustrator 7 file with Illustrator CS6. I select the rectangle, I go to the swatches panel and it is a Pantone
187 CVCbut it has a very different aspect compared to the other file from the original
.eps. So I double click the icon in the swatches panel and it gives me spot color:
C:27,11; M:100; Y:81,03; K:27,24(If I go to an Illustrator CS4 or CS5 and I open the Freehand It gives me the same color situations).
How is it possible that the same Pantone in the same versions of Illustrator (CS6) gives different CMYK values and clear screen differences?
What process of conversion can I trust?
