Quartz Crystal Composition Renderer 1.0 released by Kineme

Quartz Crystal, a new Mac OS X tool for rendering Quartz Compositions to movie files, has just been released on kineme.net and features support for all QC plugins and patches as well as spatial supersampling (antialiasing).
Aug. 9, 2008 - PRLog -- QuartzCrystal is a Mac OS X application for rendering Quartz Compositions to QuickTime Movies. It supports 3rd Party plugins (Both Official and Unofficial API), as well as unsafe patches.

It also supports up to 8x Spatial Supersampling (Antialiasing). This is not the same thing as OpenGL's "Full-Scene Anti-Aliasing" (FSAA) --- it's better. When you enable Spatial Supersampling, QuartzCrystal renders your composition at the specified multiple of your target size, and then applies a high-quality scaling filter to reduce the rendered image to the intended size. All parts of your composition get the same supersampling treatment --- not just lines and poly edges (or whatever your video card supports) as is the case with OpenGL FSAA.

Kineme offers free trial version of QuartzCrystal, which is full-featured, but defaces the rendered output movies. Purchasing a license for a mere $10 removes this limitation.
