I've imported a .swf file and have made it into a 3D layer (so I can zoom close on the vectorized animation without loosing quality.) However, when the any part of the layer is too close to the camera, the *right* edge of the swf gets cropped. Oddly, the cropping only appears in the full quality render-- if I drop down to half quality, the edge reappears.
I'm not sure what is causing this. I thought it might be some sort of clipping, but it only happens to the right edge, even if the left edge is close to the camera.

I'd guess it happens because you're using Open GL to accelerate rendering. It's always best to leave it disabled, because it rarely helps and often messes things up.
