Add many years of screams from Realise too.  COP's is in an absolutely abysmal 
state right now.  We find ourselves running COP's on Houdini 7 just in order 
to get some semblance of stability.  

The thing I just dont understand is that even the most basic things aren't 
seeming to work.  So a simple comp with some colour correction, roto splines, 
witha few layers and you're into a world of pain.  

We have wasted countless hours trying to workaround all the issues.  We just 
need COPs to be STABLE!  I'd forgo lots of new fancy cosmetic features in 
Houdini 9 just to get a compositor that works.  COP's have been around for 
years now - it really is up to Sesi to get this working - and test 
themselves.  I'm tired of "beta" testing a 4+ year old part of the system 
that should be mature by now.  Especially after all the hype we were fed...

COP's is vitally important to us, and it's obviously been put on the back 
burner at Sesi for way too long...  As a long time Houdini advocate, I must 
say I'm extremely disappointed with the whole episode...  Not upto Sesi's 
usual high QA standards.
