WTF?! This kind of thing I guess is why some people still favor the death penalty for certain crimes. Who the hell blends in a 0 alpha pixel?! thats the whole point of 0 alpha.. it doesnt show! Well.. at least I know why now. Question is.. how to use a color key that is close enough to the edge pixels that this doesnt show up. Maybe it doesnt matter since whoever is responsible for this linear filter disaster will likely be going out of business shortly.
