Dear Jacques,

In passing, i thought i might mention what Palindrome is doing with
Director (now 7.0). (on a pc, by the way)

We us it to play a film of a dance which is then "scaled" through the
dancer's movements as she does the same dance.
by this i mean that the size of the dancing image is controled by the
dancer's position. (we do this using our touchlines software.)
the whole system is actually a bit more complicated than that, but the end
effect is that the dancer can then decide how "pixeled" she wants to
appear. that is, as you bring the image closer, it falls apart into blocks
of color (pixels), allowing the public to experience the transition from
analog to digitial -- so to speak.
for more info, write me, or see our site (see below).
good luck!
