I haven't used SPAT yet since I have yet to get into more 5.1 work, but no doubt, if I do go down that route, I will be getting it. I have Verb and Trax (Transformer/CS/SF), which are all rather profound plug-ins. My favorite reverb now for sure, and also comes with a simplified version (Verb Session) for tracking and whatnot.

The Flux range that includes all their Dynamics processors is great for music production because their plug-ins can recognize change in dynamic complexity and adjust compression/expansion etc to those changes. E.g. Complex drums to simple drumming. (I'm just saying though, you're probably already aware of that.)
I will argue though that these tools are certainly useful for post-production as well, and you can use automation (I'm not sure what problems you had). In fact you can choose to automate all (99% of the) parameters between 2 maps in a Morphing fashion, or choose to automate parameters individually.

The quality is pristine. If you want to get real creative/experimental: You know you've got a serious reverb unit when you can set the Decay to Infinite, and then turn off Air Absorption. And still alter the timbre by changing the decay time. Mind bending tools here. Alter distribution/eq/shape of grouped reflections... Toggle between high and low density/resolution. It just does everything and so you can create sophisticated verbs that can have the character of great convolution verbs.
