I'm new to Maya but not to post.
I have many different Maya particle scenes that will be composited in AE into one shot.
I am rendering the layers all out as Targas with Alphas.
The alpha brings with it more than the rendered particles, namely a black ring from the BackGround it is rendered onto.
I assume this is some rendering setting that I do not have right.
Any advice? or alternate techniques?
