An AVI, as it applies to Chip's Challenge, is a term for a video solution to a level captured in .avi format, which stands for Audio Video Interleave. In the older days of CC, SnagIt was generally used to make AVIs, and it recorded only at 5 frames per second. This caused many routes to be jerky, especially routes containing heavy amounts of sliding tiles and boosting, such as Rink. Many of the older AVIs were later re-recorded by Andrew Bennett, with minor improvements added to them as well. Eventually, ChipCap was written by Anders Kaseorg for the specific purpose of making AVIs for Chip's Challenge.
Today, Tile World's automatic TWS playback feature is primarily used to share solutions, specifically as the public TWS at David Stolp's website. The public TWS automatically updates itself when a person loads a higher-timed route, even by only one-tenth on one level.
