It includes an overview of all the key features you need when starting out with simple and concise details on how to use them and how best to integrate the power of combustion into your workflow. <BR>An ideal Discreet combustion primer for computer graphics students or professionals with some prior experience in the field of computer graphics.

This guide will provide a jump-start into the major features of the software without going too in-depth about every single button in the program. Through the use of various samples and screen captures, you will learn why an artist would use one tool over another in addition to just what the different buttons do. <BR>Topics covered would include disciplines for motion graphics artists, broadcast designers, 3d animators, web artists, compositors and visual effects artists working for video and film based productions. People within the computer graphics industry of all sorts can take advantage of combustion because it is both a stand-alone application and also a bridge to several different disciplines including video editing, 3d animation, matte painting, 2d illustration and web design. <BR>* Unique, fast introduction to Combustion 3, but relevant to all versions<BR>* Concise color coverage, written by an experienced professional and trainer<BR>* Ideal for professionals, new users and thosemigrating to Combustion from other compositing or effects packages
