[PD] pix_record -> pix_film plays back too fast

I'm using pix_record to write processed video captured live from a DV
cam to disk, and then playing it back with pix_film. Unfortunately, it
seems to record at around 16fps even though GEM should be running at
20. I tried lowering GEM to 15 fps thinking that maybe it was having
trouble keeping up, but then it wrote at around 12fps. The framerates
are the ones that show up in Quicktime player, and seems to be the
same as when I play back with pix_film. I've tried recording both with
[auto 1( and banging it with a metro, but strangely it doesn't seem to
matter how fast I run the metro. I tried it at 15 fps and 50fps with
the gemwin at 20fps and the recorded video seemed to be the same.

What controls the framerate of pix_record and pix_film? I'd think that
using [auto 1( would do both of them at the GEM rate, but apparently
that seems to not be happening.

This is on my friend's MacBook pro running OS X.

thanks in advance,
