Third-party controls for Office PerformancePoint 2007

Are you using? I have been looking for some nice, elegant chart controls for Office PerformancePoint 2007 but still the search is not success. One way to achieve this goal is, using third-party controls with Reporting Services and using them in PerformancePoint reports. I tried with Dundas controls but it did not give the look and feel that I was expecting. My next try was using ChartFX but it did not work well with my environment. I feel that it is because of my operating system that is Windows 2008 (64-bit) and SQL Server 2005 (64-bit). I have opened a ticket with ChartFX support but so far no luck. I heard from a reliable source that controls are being designed by a local company but it has been not opened for other parties. If you guys are using any type of controls with Office PerformancePoint 2007, please let me know.

I know that you can use MicroCharts, but the majority of these you could do with reporting services anyways.

Have you seen this nice data visualization sample -

Let me know if you come across anything else.
