Autodesk positions Smoke on Mac as a single application for finishing, with a 64-bit core and GPU-accelerated performance. Its track-based nonlinear editor has customizable hot keys to hurry up workflows, in addition to a template for Final Cut Pro 7 users who’re switching over to the system. Smoke on Mac offers a master keyer and 3D compositing tools, together with primary and secondary color correction tools. In addition, it offers native support for Red and Arri Raw formats, and will also create low-res proxies if desired.
The Autodesk Subscription Advantage Pack (available for download later this month) provides new tools for creating original looks, better control over lighting and motion blur. The Matchbox fragment shader lets users access, design, and add custom-built GPU enhanced fragment shaders. Stereoscopic 3D viewing modes assist in visually scanning for differences between left and right eyes. And format support have been extended to incorporate Apple ProRes QuickTime files and MXF OP-1a export, HDRx support, AVCHD codec import, and Avid DNxHD format in a QuickTime wrapper.
