  • DCS2.0 Files and Illustrator

    I was just wondering if I could get a little help with an issue i am having.
    I am working on a project in which the whole image will be printed in Spot colors and the nature of the image would require me to edit the art in Photoshop. So i have created a Multichannel image and saved it as a DCS 2.0 file. This image now has to be prepped for print and sent to China for printing. Our Vendor in China only accepts illustrator ai documents. When i link the DCS2.0 document in illustrator I get a message that says; " Linked DCS EPS files interacting with transparency will not print to separations accurately (host - based) or at all ( In - RIP). "
    Is there another file format I can save my photoshop document as, and still maintain my spot channels? Or is there another way of importing this file into Illustrator that will work best? ( such as creating an EPS out of INDD)
