    Hidden text inside a rendered video

    DC B. 09 Level 1

      I just happened to open a video rendered by AE CS4 in a hex editor and it contains literally megabytes of the following stuff:

      Some of it is clearly parts of my original composition (not included above), like layer names, etc.

      And, what is this XML FOR???
