For testing certain image processing methods I want to convert a
Graphics3D object as generated by

my3d = Plot3D[Exp[-x^2 - y^2]/2, {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2},

  PlotRange -> {0, 1},

  ColorFunction -> Function[{x, y, z}, GrayLevel[(1 + Cos[50 z])/2]],

  ColorFunctionScaling -> False, PlotPoints -> 100, Mesh -> False,

  Lighting -> {{"Ambient", White}}, Boxed -> False, Axes -> False]

to a raster image. But the black line around the graphics forms a
discontinuity in the image greyvalues I want to avoid. Setting the
options Mesh -> False,  Boxed -> False, Axes -> False do not help me.

Digging deep into the  structure of my3d I worked out the following does
the job:

my3d /. {x___, Line[___], y___} -> {x, y}

But I would think there must be an easier, more transparent,  way to
achieve this.

Anyone any ideas?

Thanks for your help.
