When I use scale, the wave doesn't move any more.

The height inlet I tried before, with value 1 the spike is still very high,
it seems it doesn't have enough influence. It seems floats aren't accepted.
Does the third value if [position] have an influence, sometimes it seems

It seems to depend on some codec I use, for example cinepak doesn't work,
but its installed on the system (windows XP). In all video and 3D programms
I know (After Effects, Combustion, Premiere, 3D Studio Max, Cinema 4D,
visualJockey) the installed codecs are working. What codecs do work, what
does it depend on?

It simply doesn't show waves or they don't move, only when starting the
patch ther is a big resonance elongation, which explodes the surface.
