    hey guys
    im having problems with illustrator when i overlay a black/dark gray object over a red object or vice versa.
    the edge's of the objects that meet are choppy 'lq' if you know what i mean

    any help would be appreciated
  2. What is the 'new document profile'? (Print, web, etc?)
    What are the Raster Effects Settings (Effect > Document Raster...)
    Are the objects vectors or rasters, linked/placed images.

    Give us a screenshot as there's not much to work with.

    Do they remain choppy once exported?

    Is it just a screen preview thing? If you zoom right in do they smooth out? Is the path smooth in outline mode?

    normal in outline view

    What size are the objects? Is it the same for all sizes? :confused:

    Is it the same for both filled object and objects with paths?

    same for all sizes
    same for all objects vector, raster etc when one is black and the other red (orange and purple as well not as obvious though)
    same at higher resolution (300 dpi)
  11. A few thoughts:

    It's not as bad as I imagined.
    What is your monitor resolution? (Also, what is your monitor?)
    Try setting up a new document in Print preset, with raster effects set to 300dpi.
    Can you save as a PDF, open in Preview or Acrobat and take another screenshot?
