Default black lines around fur

Hi.

I am rendering out a character with fur using mental ray. Using the same settings (as far as i can tell) i sometimes get a nice render out such as the example if the character on the left in the picture i have included. Sometimes however i seem to get ghastly lines around the fur, like the example on the right of the picture. i have about 15 shots of the old man and 8 or so have this problem.

I rendered both out with premultiply on and imported into after effects with premultiply alpha channel settings.

Has anyone any ideas?

I have also posted this in rendering section. please don't kill me.

I don't know abuot it much, but i think the problem is somewhere in render settings, cos, like matmonkfish says, the outline is around all the character.

Hi,

I had depth of field turned on for some of the shots which turned out to be the problem.
