Combustion 2008 is the newest version of Autodesk's visual effects and compositing software tool.
Combustion is a computer program "for motion graphics, compositing and visual effects" (Discreet, n.d.). The software retails for US$995 (MacMinute, 2004). It is commonly likened to Adobe's After Effects, and shares a timeline based interface with Autodesk's (formerly Discreet) higher-end compositing systems Inferno, Flame and Flint. This is in contrast to the node based interface used by some other compositing applications.
Since the release of version 2, Combustion includes both node view and time line views.
