But I supposed that COPs (or Halo 3, erm... I mean, Halo... erm.... nm)
*could be* a contender in compositing market if SESI really pour
resources into it, yes? Nuke, IMHO, is actually very fast and nice,
aside from it's GUI quirkiness at times. :) But then again, I am no
compositor to make any serious opinions in this area...

Take care,
