Dove in head first and I can't believe I only discovered this sw just now after all the years motion designing. This really shows how a dedicated team can be so much more awesome than a goliath like Adobe. I know this is a VJ forum but it will probably replace 90% of my afx work. It is a bit weird that a tool like this is being hidden in a media server package. This needs a much much wider audience, not only live people.

Drawbacks looking from a motion graphics perspective? Seems not to support higher bitrates because HAP is only 8 bit I think. Image sequences need transcoding (but insanely fast). Timeline is a bit weird at first glance but makes sense really fast. All of which I can live with most of the time.

Btw, running win11 here and I did not encounter any problems.
