configure works now though it still doesn't find libdv.h
i can create pix_dv but gem gives an error message when i try to start
rendering: define DV(IEEE1394) for your OS.

pix_movie and pix_film both work (though slow and with reduced
colors) but i was not able to load
any other format than mpeg's made with "motion". mov's did not
load due to unsupported codecs, but maybe thats because these clips
were made on another OS with RLE and SVQ1 codec (are these video codecs
available for linux, preferably as a debian package?).
i also tried it with an avi captured in linux with "kino" - no success.

pix_model works great on linux now. the smoothness feature is really

pix_sig2pix~ was very funny to play with but i don't know if i used it the
right way. i just put it in the render-tree just before pix_texture.
is there something similar to the quality message in pix_texture?
pix_pix2sig~ always put out a high whistle on the RGB outs even though i
heavily maniplulated the mpeg with colorGRB.

i encountered some crashes when working with gem; several segfaults and
few "socket receive error: connection reset by peer(104)" but maybe thats
a bug on the user-side...

anyway, it's great


...the teapot works too ;)
