Grainy appearence archicad PDF


When i get pdf of my sheet, sections become grainy, but normally it is not like that. I used the best quality for everything but still don't know why is that.

My guess would be that it has to do with the PDF plotter and how AC renders "transparency"... Using a different viewer might help, but I usually batch plot to CUTE in these cases as it seems to convert ACs % mesh to proper shading. You would think the internal PDF plotter would translate it properly rather than rendering out the % mesh...
