Just went through the swatch pattern tut for illustrator and really helped with 3-D etc... but, i keep running into an issue with tiling. There always looks like a hairline square tile shown in the design swatch patterns once they're applied to a shape. Never noticed before cs6 or cloud versions but, anyway to work around this?
There have been a number of changes in CS from version5 including the way colors are translated between Illustrator and Photoshop, appearance, etc.
Without seeing your pattern in it's original form to examine, I would first check that the hairline tiles disappear when you change the view magnification. In which case, it is only the screen rendering and will not actually show in the final file.
If the hairline tiles remain, I recommend re-saving your swatch pattern without a background color so it can be placed over any background. This is not only useful for eliminating the tiling effect in most cases but, also required for use in garment or product comparisons where the background colors and/or materials will change from project to project.
In the case that you need to use the pattern as a smart object in Photoshop, you can double-click the smart object icon to re-open in AI and export as a higher resolution tiff than your PS document setting and re-size the tiff to replace the smart object file. For example, most print documents will require 300dpi so saving the pattern as 600 or 1200dpi will allow you to shrink the pattern 50 or 25% in your PS doc. which should eliminate any hairlines.
Again, there are different ways to resolve this and welcome any input from other members. Let us know what works for you!
