Which Windows compositing software has the Biggest Future ?

Well, the thread says it all...
since Shake (for Windows) and cyborg 5d is more or less dead i wonder which of the remaining or future compositing programs will take the lead in your opinion...
so long

Hopefully Discreet won't screw up Combustion. I personally like it, but I have NO faith in Discreet/Autodesk.

My $.02

I'd guess combustion and DF will continue to gain share on the wintel side.

Shake's still where the money is at though, IMHO.
Fix it in pre.

DF is growing... they need to fix the interface a bit and introduce dedicated masking nodes a'la Shake, but it's pretty good these days, especially the Paint. It'll be competing with Combustion and AfterFX in the lower end of the market, I'm not sure what the higher end will look like on windows, to be honest...

of AE and Combustion!!!

You do not talk about Fight Club

Dont forget the new windows app that will fill Shakes void at high end.... NUKE

I guarantee its faster then shake was on windows too....

it looks like a dog tho, shake is so niiice to work with .

I wont count on Nuke until I get a good chance to try it out, but from what I understand it's very proprietary in nature. Shake is most sertainly kicking its ass. I wonder what the first released version will be like tho...

I moved from combustion 2 to shake, shake was well worth the mac purchase.

I would put my bet (or maybe a hope) on Combustion. Like Tex3D, said I dont have much faith in Discreet also so it is hard to say. Apple is playing their own game too, trying to pull dirty triks to sell more of their slow hardware so I guess I stay away from any of their products at least for now. To bad that Cyborg is dead, I think that it was the best product out on the market for wintel systems.

I choose DF over Combustion actually. Unless it's getting real good (fast) in the next version
Old 05 May 2003   #14
for pure compositing shake even on a slow mac is still faster than combustion on a fast pc.

I bet..

Is it that memory management of combustion that does it? it seems to render every node and keep it in ram, so my gig of ram is filled only after a few frames with a midsized compositing tree :annoyed:
