The main reason not to use 3-pass is that it's a waste of time, 
especially if you're going to end up with an OGM. It doesn't do anything 
that 2-pass doesn't. Maybe I'm missing something, but I've never 
understood its purpose. I tried it a few times because it was 
recommended, but the end result was indistinguishable from using 2-pass.
