[ #Natron #Compositing ] After several months of testing and debugging, stable version of the cross-platform open source compositing softwar...
>> See Also: Compositing tutorial
Natron Features included ( via CG Press ):-Transform effects (such as Transform, CornerPin, Dot, Switch) now concatenate: the filtering is now only applied by the “bottom” node of the transform chain
-The font of the application and its size are now customizable in the preferences
-Caching behavior has been modified, making the software much faster
-New HSVTool node to adjust hue, saturation and brightness, or perform color replacement.
-New HSVToRGB & RGBToHSV nodes to convert between these 2 color-spaces
-New Saturation node to modify the color saturation of an image
-New DiskCache node – allows to cache a branch of the compositing tree to re-use it later on without re-computing the images
-When zooming out of the node-graph, all texts on nodes / arrows will be hidden to increase performances when handling huge compositions
-Tracker: all tracks are now multi-threaded for better performance
-Roto: Selected points can now be dragged from everywhere within the bounding box instead of only the cross-hair
-Roto: It is now possible to move a bezier just by dragging a part of the curve where there is no control point
-Roto: Holding shift while dragging a scale handle of the bounding box will now scale only the half of the shape on the side of the handle
-Improved parameters alignment and spacing in the settings panel
-A new tab in the preferences is now dedicated to plugins’ management – you can now choose to enable/disable plugins
-A new Auto-turbo setting has been added: when enabled, the Turbo-mode (originally toggleable with the button on the right of the media player) will be enabled/disabled automatically when playback is started/finished.

Version 1.0.0 Features are:-Python 3 scripting: parameter expressions, user parameters, callbacks, groups, custom graphical user interface thanks to Pyside and overall control over the application.
-Optical flow: This will be integrated with a set of different plug-ins handling motion vectors. The motion vectors will be generated with a VectorGenerator node and used within several effects such as Motion blur or Retiming.
-G’mic integration: G’mic is a full featured image processing framework containing literally hundreds of effects. It will be proposed as a separate OpenFX plug-in not distributed with Natron due to license issues.
The demo below was produced by Francois "Coyhot" Grassard and showcases Blender and Natron integration
