Autodesk Unveils Smoke 2015

Category: NAB
LAS VEGAS, NV — Autodesk, Inc. unveiled the latest version of its professional video editing software, Autodesk Smoke, at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB).

In addition to significant new creative tools and performance enhancements, Smoke 2015 will soon be available as a Desktop Subscription, so customers can access the software on a pay-as-you-go basis for the first time.

Smoke 2015, a professional video effects and editing tool for Mac-based studios, now features 3D Tracker, a new Timeline FX workflow, added hardware support and optimization for the new Mac Pro running OS X Mavericks and better interoperability with Final Cut Pro X. 

Key features include:

  • New re-architected Timeline FX offers new effects capabilities for editors - such as direct access to the Action 3D compositing environment as a segment-based effect
  • New timeline-integrated 3D tracker allows editors to match original camera movements in a clip in order to realistically add new elements: video layers, text or 3D objects
  • Improved support for Blackmagic DesignLink card and UltraStudio for Thunderbolt devices and extended video IO support for AJA Video Systems to offer dual stream stereoscopic output
  • Improved integration with Final Cut Pro X that supports more timeline and effects metadata for a fast, high fidelity project transfer between the apps. In addition, Smoke sequences can be exported as XML with accompanying QuickTime media files.

Smoke 2015 will soon be available via monthly, quarterly and annual Autodesk Desktop Subscription plans; customers who commit for a year save more than $500. Smoke 2015 Desktop Subscription will be available starting May 8, 2014, on the Autodesk eStore for $195/month, $545/quarter and $1,750/year.
