Outputting Transparency

Transparency can be a problem for printing. When two objects with 100% opacity overlap, Illustrator need print only the top object because the lower object is totally obscured. When the upper object has opacity of less than 100%, or a blending mode other than Normal is applied, additional objects may have to be created from the area of overlap. Figure 19.36 shows an example.

Figure 19.36. The figures on the top left (Normal blending mode) would be printed as two objects, as shown in the bottom left. The figures on the top right (Multiply blending mode) would be printed as three objects, as shown on the bottom right.
