[Chris Harlan] "Is there anything that supports these notions other than a discontinued app?"

Nothing really. There are other reasons that app might have been discontinued.
Noting that the app supported both After Effects and FCPX it may have been a one two punch of CC (and the apparent smaller user base) plus changes they felt might be coming in FCPX, resulting in limited revenue potential vs development resources, for example.

Perhaps they hit an unresolvable patent issue.

They recently had a user server and perhaps user response and comments gave them information that continuing development wasn't as lucrative as the had originally thought.

Heck maybe the sales were disastrously lower than expected.

All speculative of course.

The only pieces we know are that despite some promotion at NAB and post that with some trade reviews, they decided to cease development, end support on Sept 30, offer refunds for anyone who purchased in the last 30 days.
