well, looks like it got lost a bit in the heavy and partly
"academic" discussions here on the list ;-)

I am sure there are a whole lot more of very nice things/techniques  
to be discovered :-)

Since i am very interested in QT and multimedia per se I once discovered
QT SMIL and started to experiment, the docs are VERY sparse and  
in tiny bits all over the net.

I will keep on investigating SMIL and hope to add more features to  
the mk_libsmil1
once i discovered tehm ;-)

Although Quicktime only supports a small part of the SMIL specifications
it is yet a very powerful addition, that's right.

You're very welcome!
