Update: Discreet's Combustion/Cleaner Promotion

Mac users to get upcoming Cleaner 6 with bundle By Dave Nagel
Earlier this week we reported that Discreet was offering a deep promotional discount on a special bundle featuring Combustion and Cleaner. We've since learned that the bundle offers more for Mac users than the current version of Cleaner (version 5). In fact, the bundle will include Cleaner 6, which is expected to be released before the end of the month.

According to Discreet, those who purchase the Combustion 2/Cleaner bundle for the Macintosh will receive Cleaner 6 when it's released in a few weeks. The bundle is available for $1,497. Separately, Combustion 2 sells for $4,995, while Cleaner sells for $529. The discount will be available through the end of the year.


Cleaner 6 for the Macintosh will run natively in Mac OS X and will also support multiple processors for faster encoding. Cleaner is a video encoding suite for Web, CD and DVD.

Combustion is a compositing application that features keying and garbage mask features from Flame and color support that includes linear and log, 8-bit, 10-bit, 12-bit and 16-bit per channel support. The software's film features, including LUT controls and gain tools, come to Combustion via Flame and Inferno. It also offers network rendering capabilities and support for output to Discreet's higher-end systems, as well as an 8-bit particle system and vector paint. It is also Mac OS X-native.

The bundle is available for Macintosh and Windows, though the Windows bundle includes Cleaner 5 rather than Cleaner 6. For more information, visit http://www.discreet.com.
