I am a newbie to this package. Having tried it for the first time, I picked it up pretty quick. OK, so you don't get double-click features and context menu's, But I found it easy enough. I got to layer a number of water explosion effects in the order of overlap I wanted. I've added a couple of masks to protect foreground objects from collision. Though, having rendered it I've noticed that some of the quads have a grey outline around their perimeter (and it's in the edit too), thus framing and spoiling the effect. I had used some transparency on the items. Some plugins respond badly and darken the background. However, is the grey visible outline I have around the Quad something I can change? I've used a particular plugin in the same frame and they don't always suffer by showing an outline or sometimes a vertical / horizontal line across the frame(s). How do I turn the outline of the Quad off in the render - or is the plugin? Sorry if the answer is obvious.

The few plugins that have the quad showing were made like that ( not intended ) the only advice I can give is:
1. Contact the maker of the plugin and ask nice if he could redo it.
2. Use a mask over the quad line to hide it when rendered.
3. Learn to make plugins and change the plugin yourself.

And always just double check to make sure you're running in 32-bit color depth.
