Default brush stoke animation not smooth

I have a brush stroke that is animated to start from nothing and then to reveal the whole stroke in 3D space (kind of like an long extrusion on a path.). However the animation is not smooth. It kind of chugs in increments.
Any thoughts as to why that is? Also, the aliasing is pretty bad?

Thanks in advance,

i would say the smoothness of your animation would have to do with the amount of CVs you have in your curve - the more you have the smoother the animation would be...

but also hearing about the aliasing, i can't help but wonder if you rendered out to an avi file, the file is way too large, and you're just getting choppy playback (and didn't change the quality settings of your render)...

let me know if i'm right

may also have to do with the video card and/or its settings? ( Anti Aliasing I mean )
