I use Natron. What I want to ask about programs like Nuke, Natron, and Fusion is: Are they only for compositing one frame basically? Or can I composite a video? Just for example there is no timeline. That is, I must first fit all the video at one time and then composite? or are there any timeline nodes

Usually, the workflow goes like this:

  1. Capture your plates, real, cg, doesn't matter.
  2. Hop into Nuke, composite your plates, then render each shot individually.
  3. Edit the shot in your editing-software such as premiere.
  4. When the final edit is done, re-import each individually rendered clip into a grading software such as Resolve, apply your color grading, export again and replace the ungraded file in your edit.

So just for pipeline-purposes, it's often inconvenient to use a timeline in compositors like Nuke.
