Default Separating colors in Corel Draw 2018

I am VERY new to the screen printing business and I have a logo that needs color separation. When I separate colors in the print menu, 2 of the films print out correctly, but the other two are incorrect. I need black, white, and green separations and my orange t-shirt color should be the 4th color in the logo. I have watched a ton of videos on color separation but each one seems to have different directions. this is only my second time separating colors and the 1st time using the t-shirt itself as a color. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have CorelDraw, it's the best software to separate colors.
It's several ways you can do it.

The most easy way are the steps below:
Step 1: Ungroup your vector file
Step 2: Click on trim to make should no objects are overlapping
Step 3: Group all of the same colors together
Step 4: Create a registration mark for each color by copy and paste
so the marks can be in the same location.
Step 5: Group each mark with it color
Step 6: Now you should be able to print your color layers individually.

That doesn't get you there if your art contains bitmaps and/or gradients, which I assume is the issue the TS is having.


I cheat, I have SimpleSeps and SimpleSeps Raster for CorelDraw. I'm using CD 16, but I think they support 18, now.

Cool Re: Separating colors in Corel Draw 2018

This is to User: NoXid
If you read my message slowly, You will see that I quoted

"It's several ways you can do it."

And I also quoted
Ungroup your VECTOR file. "END OF QUOTE"
Not Bitmap

I was giving the user another way to try
If you have a vector file.
If not , change it to a vector file

No You can't just turn every photo into a giant mess of vectors and simplify the colors down to a handful and have anything other than a hot mess--or a highly stylized piece, like the Obama poster, which can be accomplished in other ways in like 2 clicks.

Vector gradients also need to be RIPed, whether with native CD functions or the help of a plugin like SimpleSeps.
