Real-time Playback (AE vs Hitfilm comparison)

No, this is not really a question. I just wanted to comment about how GREAT Hitfilm's playback is compared to After Effects. I loaded a .PNG image sequence at 2k into AE and with no effects was playing back at 11-12fps. Loaded the same into Hitfilm, added a 2k stock smoke, 2 chroma keys, particle lighting - not to mention had preview set to Full AI. Played back REAL time.
Great job Hitfilm guys!

    Thanks, Landon!
    It's also worth noting that HitFilm currently doesn't do any kind of auto-downscaling during playback like AE. In a future version we're hoping to make general previewing/playback a lot cleverer, which will really help with realtime playback.
    Great to hear it's performing well on your machine!
