That's right. Cyphre did say that it's slow because of all the dll calls. If it's integrated directly in rebol then of course it will be faster. Cyphre is just making it easier to integrate by porting the draw dialect and showing proof of concept. Carl will have less work to do later as a result. Mmm, nice demo. I wonder if you can do more with the individual points ? Bulge the image or something ? Anton.
