    Hey all!

    So spot color stuff is really one of my only holes in caldera knowledge. Does anyone have experience with this or have any good resources on this topic? Thank you all!

    Here
    Have you reached out to Caldera support. The other thing is Caldera has a lot of videos on line, do a search.

    Sweet! Caldera isn't my favorite...it all feels backwards! I prefer Onyx, but I couldn't get a good profile with my setup.
    A lot of the spot color issues we see have to do with how files are constructed. We've seen issues in blending modes too.
    We really only trust normal or multiply.

    Also have had gradient mesh stuff render really weird...had to just change colorspaces from cmyk to rgb.

    Caldera is consistent and efficient, though! Just felt like I had more control in Onyx.
