For anyone on OS X 10.4 or 10.5 who wants to watch a cool tutorial  
movie about Quartz Composer:

On OSX (only), QT has a Quartz Composer codec, you can load QC  
projects into a Player object and do amazing graphics in real-time  
tapping the power of OpenGL, Core Video and Core Image.

Since a QC (.qtz) project is just an XML file, you could make  
Revolution generate an XML file with a .qtz extension, that can then  
be loaded back into a Player object. The possibilities with this are  
staggering.

QC allows you to script graphics- for example, if you want a 3D  
matrix of 8 x 8 x 8 floating cubes with movies on each side, you need  
only make one cube and run it through a few replicate patches and a  
3D Transformation.

QC is even a little cooler in Leopard.
