thanks.  i've tinkered with the number of slices, but thats not really 
what i'm taling about.  if you look at the top center of my screenshot, 
there are two balls which have each single white pixels towards their 
upper left... when this is animated you see these little white pixels 
flashes on lots of the balls and it makes it look pretty messy. 

also, no matter how many slices you have, you still get the jagged 
pixels where the edges of the ball meet the black background unless you 
have antialiasing like in the jitter screen.

chris clepper responded off list to suggest doing 
[alpha]->[polygon_smooth]->[geos] which produces these results:


so this makes the spheres translucent, but he edges of them are still 
jagged and not antialiased.

btw, i'm using gem-cvs-2003-08-11.zip

thanks all!
