I just got my DFX software (by upgrading to LW8) a few days ago, and after watching the tutes (thanks Lee!), I was able to composite a multilayer scene with little effort.

I have a Samurai riding a horse thru a snowy scene - being chased by a pack of wolves.

I have horse & rider on one layer, 5 separate passes of the same wolf on other layers and I am now adding falling snow between them and the camera.

It works like a champ. Takes a bit to get used to the "nodal" aspect of workflow, but it has so many incredible possibilities. I know I haven't even begun to make use of a fraction of its capability. But - I can see from the toolset that it's only limited by your imagination. The ability to combine tools into a group and make a custom tool just blows my mind.

Thanks Newtek (and Lee - honestly - I wouldn't have bothered to worry about DFX if I hadn't watched the tutes)!
