Combustion was a computer program for motion graphics, compositing, and visual effects developed by Discreet Logic, a division on Autodesk. It shares a timeline based interface and also a node based interface with Autodesk Media and Entertainment's (formerly Discreet) higher-end compositing systems Inferno, Flame and Flint. This is in contrast to the exclusively either layer based or node based interface used by some other compositing applications.
