Thank you, Angus, for this great information. It was just what I
needed to know.

So a computer has to have a video card to be able to create the
QuickTime movies? - that makes sense.

I guess other computers can still read the QuickTime movies, even if
they don't have a video card?...they just can't create them, without
a video that correct?

Since the files are likely to become very large, I personally vote
not to get into making Quicktime movies for the SignWriting List
work, since .GIF's and attached .SGN files seem to be
you agree with me? Any other suggestions?

Thanks for your help -

Val ;-)
