Trouble with imageUrlBuilder not respecting hotspot and crop values in Sanity.io.

Tough time with the imageUrlBuilder (@sanity/image-url). It works fine to retrieve the image and manipulate it (set width/height flipping it etc...) but does not respect the
values I set in the studio.I've seen that the way the imageUrlBuilder works it by passing a SanityImageSource, which simply has a reference to the image document stored in the studio. How is it supposed to retrieve hotspot and crop values?

I figured this out, for anyone wondering, I was passing the asset data contained in the image directly in the imageUrlFor() function. This will load the image, but won't use the crop/hotspot. Feeding the whole image object, conatining the asset, hotspot and crop data to imageUrlFor() instead of solely the asset will fix this.

So you're not using <SanityImage>?
