Thanks for that! Where the instructions good? What did I miss?
My system starts to bog down at about 300,000 verts so yours is about
3 times faster. What CPU are you running?

I am running a amd x2 64 bit at . . I forget but the slower end. My
card is the Nvidia 7600 GS

BTW if you ever wanted to do any 3d art or animation or video effects,
video or sound editing this program is a blast and very strong. The
learning curve is a bear but worth it.

Happy to help anyone learn that emails me! My way of giving back to open source.
