Unless I am misunderstanding the Rev documentation, it states an .avi file
can be imported and played using the play command in the following script:
play videoclip "moviename.avi"
This does not use the QuickTime player. Metacard also has this ability.
I have made a variety of avi files but can not get them to display using
that script. Has anyone done this successfully? If so how??
