Background color in edges when saved as image (Solved)

"Hello,

I'm using TurboCad 15 Deluxe.  I have an object that I'm saving as a .PNG file and choosing the background color as a transparent color.  The problem is the background color is slightly merged with the edge of the object as it's rendered and so still remains, although not at exactly the same RGB value, as a thin border around the image.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem so that no color from the background ends up in the edge of the object?

Thanks"

Thought I would let others know that I have found an answer to the problem as it saves a great deal of time.


Under Render Scene Environment,
Catagory Background
Environment Image
Choose Edit Environment
Under "Plain" select Plain
Then choose the color that is to be set to transparent in the .PNG setup options when saving the image as .PNG

Hope this helps someone out as much as it has me :)

Can you post an example of where this has been done. I would like to see the results you are getting.

I have just done some more testing, the original .PNG was saved at 4000x4000, it still has the color around the border though I did not see it due to the size on screen in which it was displayed.

Also I'm resizing the images down which totaly removes it, so it's not the solution I thought it was.  Even so the resizing of the resulting .PNG image, in my case down to 500x500 does the job perfectly for me and is easy.

Oh well, still works well if you dont need the images at full res of the original.
