If this has been addressed before please forgive the rehash of the topic. There's almost too much info to try to sift through here! lol

I've been using some clip art from FXhome's Special Effects disc for a new project. I did resize some of the clip art so I could create an asteroid field with depth. Trouble is, while I can't see the edges of the clip art pictures when working on the project within EffectsLabPro, once rendered, you can see the edges of the clip art pictures....epecially if there is another effect near them i.e. I have a laser beam hitting and bouncing off each asteroid with sparks and a blue flash at each impact point. Two of the asteroids collide and when they get close to each other you can see the edges of the clip art picture.
Is there anything I can do to correct this -or- is there something I am doing wrong? I have even tried re-ordering the effects, clip art and such but it does not help.

Well, to start with, I'd recommend using CompositeLab for your compositing work, rather than EffectsLab. Since you have both programs registered, it seems logical to use the one that was designed for compositing, and has the tools to do so, for your compositing needs, rather than using EffectsLab.

Other than that, can you give us a link to an image? Its hard to troubleshoot video problems without seeing any visuals for reference.

Thanks Axeman-
Apparently there is a problem with the computer I'm using and when I watched the asteroid sequence on a different computer [after rendering] it looks absolutely beautiful. Can't explain why it only looks funny with this one sequence on my computer- eh- computers are weird sometimes tard . I apologize for wasting your time redface . Have a great day!
