    This creates a very shaky looking but a little bit smoother looking video
    .

  12. 12
    That's a bit too much for what we want, so let's bring that bar down to 5
    .

  13. 13
    Then we can do the same thing and go up to "Tools", and "Build Dynamic RAM Preview" and play that
    .

    This gives us a little less blurriness and this looks good
