I was trying to make a completely black filled object, with a white outline, only around the entire shape. So when I make a sphere, this works fine, but when I make a cube, it also makes outlines on the edges. Is there a way to only outline the outer shape?

Can't do it in swift3d but if your animation isn't too long you could take your object into flash and use the ink bottle tool to drop an outline on the edges. Maybe labor intensive but a work-around. Something worth mentioning in the wish list forum.

you could render it as a .swft (separate outline layer).
then in flash drag the outline layer BEHIND the colour layer.

Or, you could export your animation and then apply a filter to it with AS3. The drop shadow filter can give you that solid line around the contour of your objects if you set up the filter just right.
