Oh, well then, probably not.Not unless your video software uses some weird stuff with your video card.Most movies are jpegs or other coded format stacked and synch'd to sound, rendering them probably wouldnt use any video hardware acceleration I wouldnt think, im usng an OS that doesnt use it for that anyway.

Well, it has a major effect on games, I would think it would have the same effect on DVDs.

Actually a movie is pre-rendered where as a game is rendered on teh fly. so since the movie has no rendering to fo through then it cant be updated by AA and AF
