Well, "serious performance hit" is probably a little extreme but it 
won't be as good.  And as Richard mentions, you can see the controller 
but you can't use it.  Custom controllers would get around that though. 
  Also, QTVR won't work with alwaysBuffer since the movie doesn't 
respond to mouse clicks.
