Autodesk Launches Combustion 2008 Desktop Compositing Software

Autodesk has announced Autodesk Combustion 2008 software, the latest version of its desktop compositing and visual effects solution.
Combustion offers digital media artists an easy-to-use interface, non-destructive workflow and extensive toolset at an affordable price. It has been used on the Juicy Fruit 'Ant' commercial by Asylum Visual Effects, the Target Anthem ad by Brand New School, and by Zoic Studio on the 'Journeyman' television show.
The popular Colour Warper tool, found in the Autodesk Flame visual effects system, has been added to Combustion 2008. The new release also includes improvements to the schematic view.
The Colour Warper in Combustion 2008 performs primary and selective colour correction. It also allows for precise fine-tuning with multiple levels of adjustment in a single pass. Colour Warper features include: Interactive adjustment of gamma, gain, offset, hue, saturation, and contrast; Intuitive hue shift and a tint colour wheel for fast, accurate colour balancing and a visual colour sampling palette for precise colour matching; Interactive Histogram and curves editing modes for subtle, precision tweaking of colour components; Independent controls for colour correcting the image’s shadow, midtone, and highlight regions; “Match” feature for fast scene-to-scene colour correction; "Selective” feature for sampling up to three different colour regions for isolated correction.
The user interface features high-quality RGB vector scope, and a 3D histogram for precise colour monitoring of projects.
