Do you need a special graphics card to set the preview to Beast? ;-)

While saving a picture is another option, I personally do not like it. First of all you can run into things like subtle color changes or subtle pixel shifts. I prefer using the velocity envelope for this operation.

Plus, with the velocity envelope you can gradually slow down instead of having a abrupt stop.

You sure do - and it's only available from my super-secret supplier :-)

When taking a snapshot, it's always good to change the preview mode from "Preview (Auto)" to "Best (Full)". It's one of the drop-down boxes above the preview screen.

Only Mike has the setting options for "Beast" snapshots. It's a special setting made just for him! :-)

I have to have something to scare my wife and kids off of my computer - even though they have their own machines :-)
