    We were using COSA After Effects before Adobe took over the software in the early 1990’s along with a little program called renderman. We did a lot of waiting and things have changed from using a dongle and having 3rd party plug-ins as well as the way we imported files into the project. Very happy with its longevity and look forward to its future possibilities. Faster, easier is what we all want.
