I use beamer class with Warsow Style.

However I also get a shadow rounded box on the first slide on my title.

My question is show to remove the shadow rounded box on my title on the first page ?

You can set the title page template to suppress the shadow (this will leave the shadow for the blocks unaltered):


\title{The Title}
\author{The Author}

\setbeamertemplate{title page}[default][colsep=-4bp,rounded=true]





enter image description here

Thank you so much, it is exactely what I wanted to do ;) – Swiss12000 Dec 9 '12 at 11:10
I found the above answer have a problem, that is, the title block is not in the center strictly. It just "removes" the shadow. Another question I would like to ask is that how to let the title block on a part page get rid of shandow as well, if a presentation is divided into some parts and the commanders \part and \partpage are used. Thanks. – Mike Oct 15 '13 at 9:31
