Hey There,
I've recently had my fiery and firmware updated on my Ricoh7110x and since then I've been getting massive processing lag with jobs with transparent images. (this is extra long processing time and jobs will pause every couple pages for what seems to be additional processing)

I'm currently having my prepress guys use the FieryOptimized2 distiller when exporting from indesign to a pdf. I can fix this lag problem by using the PDF/X-4 settings, but in the past when I wasn't using the FieryOptimized2 I was having issues where Fiery was't honouring certain transparencies in some jobs.

I'm wondering which is best to stick with? The FieryOptimized2 or PDF/X-4? What do people find gives them the least issues?
