I have been exporting TGA sequences with alphas from after effects and when I open them in Photoshop I can see a strange white rim (usually) of pixels around my art. Sometimes it's just a tiny cluster of pixels too. They are not seen in the alpha though so I know they aren't really supposed to be there.

I have tried premultiply and straight alphas. I've also tested putting a black background behind the comp in AE and the garbage goes away but the alpha becomes a solid white.

This isn't really a huge problem but sometimes when the client sees white in the RGB they freak even though they know it's getting keyed out.

This is also just after effects footage from a comp. There are no external pieces of art other than photoshop comps.

Anyone know what it is?

get back to us after you try a Tiff 32bpc, LZW off image. Then'll we'll know if it's a premult problem or something else...
