I sooo hope they keep this project alive and kicking! Apparently they're looking for a new project maintainer.

The program crashes out with no good reason too often. Very unstable, at least on a Windows system.

It's a pretty robust software in many respects. HOWEVER, it doesn't support sound, which is the Achilles Heel right now. You cannot sync visuals to audio without a convoluted, cumbersome work-around so if sound syncing is important, then this fails badly. But I heard they're working on sound (As of July 2022). So hopefully one day I can actually switch over to Natron. A POSITIVE for After Effects veterans is that there are several views like "Dopesheet" (which Nuke has too) which feels slightly more akin to After Effects if you're used to that, but you do have to get use to the nodal workflow first.

Seems intimidating but actually easy to use after watching a couple of basic tutorials (concepts are simple, graph is actually easier than some menu based software). A good surprise
