Smoothly moving a jpeg

Thanks - shortening the changes in distance helped a lot. So it 
appears Rev doesn't visibly move an image, it jumps it to the 
next location.

If I move the image a pixel at a time, but tighten the loop to 2 
or 3 milliseconds, things get pretty smooth. Now to test the 
reading speed with the on camera talent!
