I haven’t used it too much except for extracting exr channels to create 
mattes for the whining compositors.
Apparently multi layer exrs make afterFX dog-ass-slow, so they prefer 
png mattes and single layer exr for all the float stuff.
Having said that, Back in my Softimage days, I found it super powerful 
to have a compositor inside the 3d DCC.
You can link parameters from the 3d scene like speed, or position, or 
whatever, to things inside your comp with simple expressions.
This sounds silly at first, but once you get into this mind set, you can 
create some pretty sick results.
