This is an AfterEffect project. No DV footage used. The "none" or  
uncompressed version looks great, the "DV codec" compressed version  
looked soft.

The none version stuttered on my machine and I was wondering if that  
was a function of the computer and whether that limitation would be  
overcome by the compression applied when making a DVD.
