Autodesk Smoke 2013 reworks

Autodesk reworked its video editing and post-shot visual effects tool specifically for Mac users. Smoke 2013 brings a new, unified interface that mixes traditional, editorial track-based editing with Autodesk's own interface elements. A node-based compositing tool, ConnectFX, lets editors insert advanced effects without having to jump to a separate interface.

New specific tools join the group, including a Color Warper for pro color adjustment, a Master Keyer for faster chromakey editing for green screens and stereoscopic 3D editing, and a 3D visual effects workflow with real 3D effects for elements like logos and titles. All media is put in one central area, the MediaHub.

Hardware requirements have even been lowered for the new version, Autodesk said, and users can take advantage of Thunderbolt external drives and video peripherals to get the same kind of editing that would normally require a Mac Pro. Video format support is relatively broad and includes Apple's ProRes 4:2:2, ARRIRAW for Arri cameras, DNxHD, and RED's Redcode.

Smoke 2013 doesn't ship until later in the fall, but it's already due to cost $3,495 for each license.
