Flash template giving black boxes instead of transparancy

Hello all,

I’m having some troubles with using a flash template I made. I get a black background where it should actually be transparent. I’ve searched around and found a topic on this on the old forum (thank you webarchive!) Sadly the link to the solution is not archived: https://web.archive.org/web/20180522225823/http://forum.casparcg.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3785&p=25867&hilit=black+flash#p25867

I noticed some users have a back-up of the old forum. Is someone willing to copy-paste the solution here for me? Or maybe send me a pm?

Thank you very much.

Is this around text?
You should add a blur filter of 0 or disable aero and cleartype on your desktop.

Bless you. Blur filter of 0 works perfectly!

This is from a German Win 7. It will solve the problem for ever and without always adding the blur of 0

I’ve added a pull request that would add the blur in the templatehost so it would no longer be required in the templates.

I don’t think that this is a good idea, as it cures a wrong Windows setting with something that adds to the processing power needed for the templates to play.
