  For releases prior to Irix 6.2, key frames are placed by 
  default every fifth frame.  

  Beginning with WebForce1.1 and IRIX 6.2, it is possible to
  control the keyframe distance.

  To do so in a program, set the parameter 
  DM_IMAGE_KEYFRAME_DISTANCE parameter when you create an 
  image track.

  The tools (dmconvert/makemovie/movieconvert) also have 
  options to allow you to control keyframe rate.
