Ok,, it wont change in Alam. but you can see that when you are exporting, it does change. So look at Tarn's tute, see how he puts a white box over a window frame, well, when he exports, the frame will be in front of flubber.

Make sure your screen display properties are set to "32-Bit" color depth.
