Cleaner is a tool for creating streaming video and audio for the Web; it can output more than 60 video formats including QuickTime, Real and Windows Media. It costs US$529 as a standalone product.
Combustion 2 is a resolution-independent, vector paint, animation and compositing solution for multi-format work from the Web to video and HDTV to feature film. It costs $1,495 when purchased separately.
The Desktop Video Effects bundle is available for both Mac and Windows platforms.
Cleaner 6 is due this fall. Among other things, it will take advantage of Mac OS X’s memory protection, preemptive multitasking and symmetric multiprocessing when running on the dual processor Power Mac G4. Discreet has optimized Cleaner 6 for Mac to leverage the power of the G4-processor to make workflow and project delivery faster, said Paul Lypaczewski, general manager of Discreet.
Cleaner 6 for Mac will be available for $599 and $179 for upgrades. If you purchase Cleaner 5.1 for Mac (the current version), you’ll get a free upgrade.
