why does it seem like a hack to you?
if you want to create an avi of your car, you have to use a video-camera.
if you want to create an avi of (vector) graphics, you have to render
them into pixel space.

i don't think that either of these is a hack; it is just how things are

definitely not.
if you don't want to do graphics but video instead, you are problably
better off with pdp....
(this is not meant as an insult on you or pdp; it is just that pdp
(apart from 3dp) is video/pixel oriented instead of graphic-oriented;
yves has done a [pdp_text])

however, "exporting" to different formats should be made simpler in Gem...
