AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Hatch Background - Color Mask To Show On Screen Green And Gray But Plot Black And Gray

Feb 27, 2013

My company is switching from ctb files to stb files. With the ctb file, we make concrete hatch with two layers. A top layer with the concrete hatch pattern and a background layer with a solid hatch patern. The ctb file concrete plots the concete hatch black and the solid background hatch light gray. I am using civil 3d 2013 and the hatch allows a seperate background color mask. I am trying to make all my concrete layers (Top of Curb, Curb Flowline, etc.) a certain color scheme, i.e. shades of green. I would like my on screen concrete hatch patern to be a green color with a gray background, but plot the concrete hatch black with a gray background. I can not figure out how to do this without making two layers. Is there a way to use one layer and utilize the background color mask to show on screen green and gray, but plot black and gray?

Photoshop Elements :: Change Green Screen Background To Gray Or Textured Off-white?

Jan 6, 2013

Today I downloaded a trial version of PSE. This means of course that I'm new to the game. I can follow a step-by-step guide though. Here's what I'd like to do: I've taken a dozen photos of an actor with a green screen as a background. Is there a way that I can chroma-key out the green and put in another color, like gray or perhaps a textured off-white?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: DWG To PDF - Lines Plot As Gray Instead Of Black?

May 9, 2011

Unfortunately I am using ACAD 2000 so bear with me and the only ACAD training I have is a 3 day crash course at the local software reseller.

I am attempting to plot a drawing that was created from a template into a .pdf but it is plotting colored lines instead of black lines. 

Here is some background info.  My template is set up as a .dwt which I will save as a .dwg when I begin to make my drawings.  Plot style table is “monochrome.stb” and I have selected Adobe .pdf as my plotter configuration.  I then select the “Properties” then go to “Custom Properties”, “Paper/Quality” tab and then select “Black & White” as my color.

When I go to plot the drawing as a pdf and do a preview of what I am about to plot, I see that the lines that make up the drawing are a shade of gray in color.  All my lineweights in the layers property manager are set to default.  I have attached a blank drawing that is based off of my template.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Background Mask Plotting Gray Dotted Lines?

Dec 27, 2013

We are using Autocad 2014, we recently changed our dimension style fill color to background in lieu of none. This way when we are labeling components on our drawings our text would be to the front and the lines would be to the back. Before we would trim all lines around text which was tedious. We have lines merge on which is a must for our firm. When we plot or create pdf files, there are random gray dotted lines either to the left or left and top of the text where the background mask box is located (see attachment). It is not every dimension or multiline leader text. We plot to an Oce Plotwave 300 (printer driver ocegdi11.hdi). The lines are more faint on the plots than the pdf file, but are on both.

Also tried plotting a pdf file within autocad with the dwg to pdf.pc3 (printer driver pdfplot11.hdi) with lines merge on and it created the lines also.  If I use the adobe pdf (printer driver gdiplot.hdi) it did not put the lines. Adobe pdf will not work for us because it is set to lines overwrite instead of lines merge. When I changed the adobe pdf to lines merge it created a filled color region behind my dimensions and masked text. I contacted AcroPlot which is the program we use to create pdf files and they said it is a bug in Autocad, but thought it was fixed in newer versions. I have tried changing the dimtfillclr to 255, but this did not work for us.

Photoshop :: How To Extract Black Fonts From Gray Background?

Sep 7, 2006

I have a TIFF file of a scanned microfilm page of a very old manuscript.

The background of the black fonts is gray, and it makes the reading of the text very hard.

My question is: is there a simple way to extract only the black fonts of the text, or otherwise to brighten up the background?

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Background Mask Plots Partial Black On MText

Oct 16, 2012

I have this problem with my MText Background Mask. You can take a look at the two attachments. Each one gives me the same issue, but with different MText objects. I'm also plotting to a KIP5000 and a SHARP All in One, and I get similar results, except in some of the MText, they come out in a random color as well. The pc3's for all devices are set to Lines Merge.

The text is actually part of an xref file, and if I plot directly from the file they are in, I have no problem. I did a test where I copied the text into the sheet file, and got similar results when the text is in modelspace, and I got my intended results when the text is in paperspace. Now, this is the way I want to go...but the company standard is to draw it all in the xref, so I have to figure out how to get around this.

I've gone back and forth with the Merge/Overwrite options in the pc3, and when plotting to PDF and SHARP, I get the correct output with Overwrite, but the KIP just completely ignores the background mask with Overwrite.

Photoshop :: Gray Channel (in Gray Mode) Selection

Jun 7, 2011

I have another question about GREY images.

Example: CTRL+click on grey channel theoreticly (by my theory) make selection from white depending on its value. So cuting out must leave transparent greyscale image. But it don't (okey, it do, but changes black value):

The same selection inverted and filled with 100%K gives correct result: Is my "theory" about CTRL+click selection wrong? Becouse for my point of view, both ways should give same result.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Solid Hatch Color 255 Prints Black?

Mar 24, 2003

Because of the problems with wipeouts, I have switched to using some solid hatch set to colour 255. The hatch is in paperspace, sitting under titleblock and other Layout text. I am plotting to an HP1050C, using a .ctb file with 255 set with grayscale off.

The plot preview is fine, but the hatch blocks come out black on paper. I thought this was the problem with wipeouts, and that hatch didn't suffer from it.

AutoCAD Print / Plot :: Gray Lines In PDF Don't Merge?

Feb 18, 2009

Acad2004, Acad2008MEP
Acrobat Pro 6.0 and 8.0 -and- CutePDF Writer

Merge Lines in PC3 'Device and Document Settings Tab' does not work when creating PDF's - but the same CTB works fine if I print to (2) different plotters and (3) different printers. We use gray for backgrounds and use black thicker lines for detail work. For many years we have had to make sure to send the backgrounds (gray colors) to the back (draworder) before plotting. It is not practical to do this every time we plot. I'm willing to use another program to create PDF's but I haven't found one that works.

Photoshop :: Layer Mask Paste Into Always Gray

Whenever I try to paste into my layer mask, the pasted image loses its color and turns gray. How can I keep the color when pasting?

Both files are RGB mode. I can paste the image into the image (but not the mask) and it will maintain its color.

Photoshop :: Why RGB Gray Gradient Not All Gray

Oct 30, 2012

Why does a black through white gradient created in an RGB document have a B channel that differs from the R and G channels?
In 8-bit mode, only some of the "grays" have a mismatching B value and there seems to be more of them when the gradient is created by Gradient Tool than when it is a Gradient Fill layer. The difference seems to be 1 in the cases that I've seen.
In 16-bit mode, I see the B differ from R and G by 7 at black, gradually reducing to 0 at white.
Before someone says, "Why make a fuss about small discrepancies?", I'm asking why there is any difference at all.

Photoshop :: Layer Mask Is Turning Skin Gray?

Apr 13, 2013

I have used the same basic skin retouching method for hundreds of pictures. Usually I end up with very nice, natural looking skin.  Today, the same technique is turning the skin gray on any picture I attempt to use it on. I cannot figure out why.  Essentially, I copy the background layer.  I do my spot healing on this layer.

When I'm through, I make 3 more layers.  On the first, I use the Median filter. On the second, I use a high pass filter.  Then on the 3rd, I add I layer mask, painting in black, and go over the skin. It is always gray on the mask.  I then go back and reduce the opacity of the high pass and median layers.  Usually I end up with smoother, but natural skin and it's normal color.  Today, every time I attempt to do this, the skin stays a muted gray.  I cannot figure out why.  what might be different that I'm not noticing?

Illustrator :: Default RGB Black Is Gray?

Oct 14, 2009

Group, I just got CS4 and I am working in RGB and when I hit D to set default colors the black is not black... It is a dark grey.  Basically the same if you take something that is black in a CMYK document and paste it into an RGB document.  The black becomes gray.  Can't figure out what color setting to change to set blacks as "Rich Black."  Under Edit - Preferences - Appearance of black, it is set to Rich Black.

Illustrator :: What Is 70% Gray Of 100% Registration Black

Feb 11, 2014

what would be the CMYK value for "70% Gray of 100% Registration Black." A teacher from school has asked me to print the type for a poster in that color, expressing it that way, and I'm not sure what he means. From my understanding, 100% Registration Black is C: 100, M: 100, Y: 100, K: 100. So how would the 70% change that?
In case you need some frame of reference, I'm working on a poster for a class that has to be printed in a particular way for a Photolithography class. I'll be making two files, each of which will have the info for one of the two colors in the poster. Those files will then be made into films which will be printed.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Background Mask Not Masking When Lines Merge Is ON During Plot

Apr 25, 2008

Try plotting to a PC3 format with Line Merged option on under the properties for the plotter. Note how the contours continue through the text.

Try plotting with Lines Overwrite. Note how the contours don't go through text.

Any users out there saying they cannot use the "Lines Overwrite" option and need something else so they can still use the Lines Merged option and have their contour text looking good. How to get this in a SP or HF soon. Otherwise it may be deferred to 2010 and so on and so forth.
