Using Flatten Transparency will turn the two shapes into 3 with the transparency, well, flattened:. Unfortunately, this does not preserve the colors exactly as they are initially rendered. Use with caution!
Another way is to simply duplicate the objects, rasterize, shift-Eyedropper, then delete the duplicates. While the existing answers are good i'll add another option.
This only works on rgb documents. No need to write down values. Duplicate the image next to the original, rasterize it, select parts of the same color you want to change in your original and eyedrop the corresponding color on your flattened image. It will update the selected parts to that color, without need of transpareny. OK - I'm going to wade in with my graphic knowledge So after seeing these work around methods and not really finding them to be a satisfactory solution I use this method:.
Select your base colour in CMYK values lets say a nice green I'm sure i'll get the haters because it won't work for two CMYK colours and blah blah blah So I hope that helps in this case I tried both of these, but the colour shifted somewhat. Tried all the steps above and color still shifts. Found out an easiest way and color is very accurate.
Just copy the object into photoshop and find out the CMYK value, there u go!! Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

Delete image. Benefit of this approach is that all steps can be done with the keyboard. Will try and avoid using opacity to get colour in the first place in future though. Thanks for the contribution and welcome to GraphicDesign! Ti Mi Ti Mi Featured on Meta.

Fonts and Transparency
When you save an Illustrator file in certain formats, the native transparency information is retained. When you reopen the file in Illustrator, the native unflattened data is read. When you place the file into another application, the EPS flattened data is read. If your document or artwork contains transparency, to be output it usually needs to undergo a process called flattening. Flattening divides transparent artwork into vector-based areas and rasterized areas. As artwork becomes more complex mixing images, vectors, type, spot colors, overprinting, and so on , so does the flattening and its results.
Font and Transparency
When you print a file that has effects, such as drop shadows, cool gradient blends, and feathering, Illustrator flattens them, by turning into pixels any transparent areas that overlap other objects and leaving what it can as vectors. To understand flattening, the Figure below demonstrates the difference between the original artwork on the left and the flattened artwork on the right. Notice that in the flattened artwork some areas turned into pixels. But at what resolution? Flattening helps you determine the quality of the flattened art.
