The patent is not pending, it was issued in June.

We are in complete agreement that the unauthorized use of an invention by any party (regardless of technologies used) would infringe on the patent.

We are also in full agreement that the use of anothers patent requires a license or permission from the patent holder.

In reviewing each of the claims of this patent against Trapcode's products, one may examine for each claim: "Is it possible to implement the invention as described with Trapcode's products?" My point is, that based on the language contained in the patent, it is not possible for anyone to infringe on this patent with Trapcode products. It is possible (though difficult to achieve) with After Effects in some scenarios, specifically with the use of real-time encoding equipment.

As a copyright and patent holder, I also take infringement allegations seriously and would not want to use products that put me at risk of being sued. Unless or until one can specifically state which claim is being infringed upon and how, I will continue to use Trapcode products with complete confidence that no unauthorized use of the invention is occuring or facillitated by the use of Trapcode products.
