Discreet Effect was a version of the Flint software by Discreet for the SGI O2. The 5.0 version was in fact named Flint for O2. The 5.5 and 6.0 versions were named "Effect (option 3)", as at the time there was a Windows software named Effect, with two versions: option 2 and option 1 (a basic version of option 2). Discreet Effect for Windows was not based on Flint but a software named Composite by Illuminaire, later replaced by Discreet Combustion.
