Issue description

Rendering with quality>0 the attached file produces a thin line in the sewed area. It doesn't matter what value you use to anti aliasing.

If you set the quality to be exactly 0 then the thin line disappears. But it would not render some layers (plant, blurs, etc.)

Also quality=0 and anti aliasing set to big values increases the render time a lot.

Using svn r1176

I think it does. If you turn off the 'antialiasing' checkbox in both 'left' and 'right' layers in your example then the thin line disappears.

It seems as if it's the antialiasing that causes the thin line. Could it be that 'left' and 'right' fit together perfectly, but that one of both of the layers is having a little background color added to it by the antialiasing?

See the attached screenshots, showing how the thin line looks with the 4 combinations of antialiasing on and off for the left and right layers. "left" means antialiasing is on only for the left layer, "both" means it's on for both.

This is not really a bug. Such behaviour is caused by the way how anti-aliasing works in the Synfig's rendering engine.
