Those need to be on the card twice each, so that you can scroll the second copy into view as you move. That went well enough, so I added 101 LC logos to the scene, and it still moved well.

This truly an amazing demo of what can be done graphically with LC these days.  It is incredibly smooth on my Mac Air.  Thanks for sharing this.
It is very fitting that I am testing it at this moment.  The backdrop looks like the hills over here in Scotland.  I am listening to the bag pipes as they are being played outside my hotel window while flying through the highlands in this demo.  Very cool!
