Having the lens distortion plug-in in AE is a big help. If someday Hype were to support bitmap filters that would be stellar.
Something else with AE that can be simulated in Hype is a solar system effect. As AE uses 3D cameras that can move through a virtual space and as objects can be set to automatically orient themselves towards the camera, you can fly between planets that appear to be spherical but which are only circular masks with art passing behind them, similar to the globe here. This can be simulated in Hype as with the globe, with the objects changing size and location to simulate a fly-through in a 3-D environment.
