hmm, i guess (haven't checked) that when [pix_film] fails to load the
movie, it will not output anything at the info-output.
you can use the absence of the message to detect the failure.

and of course you can just detect whether there is an image in the chain
or not (use [pix_info] for that) and react accordingly.

but i like the first approach more.
