How to preserve and keep 2 Pantones from Illustrator, via Photoshop, to InDesign?

Ciao!
I have designed a 3D illustration in Illustrator (version 15.0.2), this illustration need to be printed for a magazine cover and I want to use 2 pantone colours for it.
The 2 pantone colours are assigned form the Swatch Palette.
The image is in CMYK (file > document colour mode > CMYK).
The illustration is in 3D and the text has been convereted in outline. But I have not expanded the appareance of any element.
I want to add more depht to the illustration and Photoshop seems the best solution for shadows and visually looks better.
Plus InDesign can manage Photoshops files with Effects very nicely.
[I find difficult and problematic to import Illustrators files with added Effects in InDesign, it leaves always a white background around the image and I don't know how to get rid of that.]
How do I import the image in Photoshop (version 10.0.2) and keep the pantone?
If I export/import the image as .psd format the files gest converted in CMYK automatically.
In the Swatch Panel (next to the pantones I want to use) I see two square boxex the first has a round gray circle (I don’t know what this means), the second has 4 triangles (this I believe means CMYK).
In the Separation Preview panel (if I click Overprint Preview) I have listed the 4 CMYK colours and the 2 pantones but if I turn off the 5 CMYK eyes I only see the white artboard, it’s like if the pantone are not assigned.
After adding the shadows in Photoshop I need to import the file from Photoshop to InDesign and the final file need to be transparent because there's a backround at the bottom and a box of text in between the background and the illustration.
I could place the bacground and the text in photoshop no problem for that...
The questions are how do I import the 3D file from Illustrator, keep the pantone and add the Photoshop shadow?
Hope anyone can help me as I'm going to press soon...
Please feel free to ask me anything else if need to answer the questions.
Many many thanks in advance if you can help me.

This first image is the file in ID with High Quality Display on
This is with Overprint Preview and that what I aming for, roughly, for the final. [I'm not sure what is the purpose of overprint preview in ID].
This is the 3 plates of Black and two pantones
This is the plate of Black plate
This is the Pantone 812 c plate
and finally this is the Pantone 8201 c plate
Hope this can help to get the best solution

  • How do you transfer line art from Illustrator to Photoshop?

    I created a set of icons in illustrator and would like to move them to photoshop as shape layers. The icons are created from the strokes of shapes, and when I paste them into photoshop, the shape fills in and I lose the stroke. I could add a stroke in photoshop, but it misses any internal strokes that I have drawn. I could plate them as smart objects, but I would prefer them to be shape layers. How can I get these icons into photoshop?

    Dear vbach: If by "Line art" you mean Line art in the original sense, i.e., black lines on a white background, I've been doing it for twenty-odd years, copying from AI to PS. It's gotten better lately with the shaped lines now available in AI. I don't have to outline anything. Select lines in Illustrator, copy, switch to PS, and paste into a new or existing file. See attached half-size jpeg. Is this what you mean?

    Hi, I am expetimenting trouble when copying and pasting any path from illustrator or photoshop to Indesign. It says :''Illustrator import failed. Scrap Containes no visible objects". I have tried all the thing you have suggested previously. This is happening in both indesign CS6 and CC (it does not even paste paths that were created in  indesign C6 to indesign CC). Have you found a solution for this already?, Thanks.

    I have the same problem with lectures slides.
    Furthermore, sometimes the text box, when doube-clicking, turns  the text into a one-liner. Causing the text box to sometimes get 3. times wider than the pdf itself.

    By pressing [cmd + I] the Inspector opens up and clicking on the rightmost tab 'Annotations' you should be able find those Annotations again. I do this regularly to find the empty annotations I accidentally create while clicking through slides.

  • Is it possible to preserve the layer name when I copy and paste from Illustrator into Photoshop?

    Is it possible to preserve the layer name when I copy and paste from Illustrator into Photoshop?
    At the moment it just appears as "Vector Smart Object" in Photoshop and I have to take another step and change the layer name.
    Thank you!

    Not that I know. PS doesn't care for these kinds of things and uses its own naming system.

    Please help me out as this is very irritating. This has been happening for the last 20-30 minutes. It had roughly half battery left.

    Try:

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable       
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • Muse 2014.2 : when I copy and paste svg from Illustrator to Muse, i have no transparency.

    Hello. Muse 2014.2 : when I copy and paste svg from Illustrator to Muse, i have no transparency. Only by importing saved svg file I have transparency.
    In official Adobe (promo) Tutorial  in the same operation - svg is transparent, link: Import SVG | Adobe Muse CC tutorials
    Please help me!. It would be very usefull copy&paste svg with transparency.
    Andrew Maola

    Hi.
    Thank you for explaining the theory about rendering in Muse but something doesn't work.
    I'm running on Win7 - CC2014.2. on 2 different computers. Efe Of course the transparency displays correctly when I preview my page in the browsers (All browsers - also IE11).
    Also in preview mode svg is very good but in design mode
    In order to render the SVG at design time, Muse hands the SVG to Safari on the Mac and Internet Explorer on Windows and asks it for a bitmap. This bitmap is only used at design time and when viewing the site in a browser that does not support SVG. Unfortunately, the bitmap returned by Internet Explorer strips out partial transparency. Fully transparent pixels should be preserved at design time and all transparency should be preserved when you actually view your site in the browser.
    We have not seen or heard of differences in the handling of transparent pixels between copy/pasting and save/import. Hence, I'm wondering if the copy/paste issue is only with partially transparent pixels and if the case that succeeds in a save/import workflow is for fully transparent pixels. To be clear, this transparency issue should only be during design time on Windows. There shouldn't be any issues on the Mac or in the browser.

  • CS4 How to disable anti alias when pasting from Illustrator to Photoshop?

    Hello,
    I'm trying to paste vector artwork from Illustrator into Photoshop but it seems no matter what I do Photoshop anti aliases the illustration. Is there a way to keep this from happening?
    The whole point of making the art in Illustrator was to keep the edges clean and the colors limited.
    Your suggestions are much appreciated.

    In Illustator >> Object >> Rasterize >> Anti-aliasing>> None
    Copy and paste this into Photoshop.
    Or
    Illustrator >> File >> Export >> psd >>turn off anti alias

  • Muse 3.1 crashes often upon copy and paste 'text'from illustrator

    Experience persistent crashes in Muse 3.1 whenever I copy and paste text from illustrator to  Muse.

    I would use the older version so you can continue working while troubleshooting continues in CC2014, if you haven't uninstalled it yet (and it didn't also lose the ability to copy/paste).
    Have you tried any of the usual suspects?

    Hi DG.
    The easiest way to copy an HP Photo Creations project to another computer is to click the Share button. That will upload the project to the Web and give you a link you can paste into an email. Clicking the link on the other computer allows you to download the project and personalize it. This quick video shows the process. (The screen looks slightly different now, but the concept is the same.)
    Another way to share a project is copy the project folder to a thumb drive. Look in Documents/HP Photo Creations/My Things to find your saved projects.
    Our customer support team would be happy to walk you through the process. Contact them at [email protected]
