just watched that tut....it really good (especialy for a free video tut), so, tnx for making it!
Just one Q: is it possbile to tweak (hope I ued right word) how fast do picture show when you make an anim., and want to compose it in some the app from that tut? Or is it just something you don't really pay attention and should be tweaked within Maya? I don't know much about compositing,so pard me if I say something stupid

do you mean the speed of the animation? You can adjust that in most compositing programs. The free program I talk about in the vid (videomach) doesn't really have that much functionality, but other stuff like premier and such can do that sort of thing.
