Overview

Smoke connects editing and effects like never before. Smoke professional video editing software for Mac includes finishing tools for 3D compositing, color correction, and motion graphics.

Features

Boost productivity and efficiency with editing software that integrates effects tools into an easy-to-use timeline environment.
New features in Smoke® help you to:

  • Use segment-based Timeline FX and advanced ConnectFX node-based compositing as you edit.
  • Go beyond 2D layer-based effects with a 3D compositing environment that allows you to integrate lighting effects, work with real 3D geometry in your scenes, mix multi-resolution video layers, and take advantage of new 3D tracking, all within Smoke software’s FX toolset.
  • Integrate your pipeline with Apple Final Cut Pro X and move timelines between editing and effects with enhanced XML interchange. Take advantage of flexible hardware configurations with support for Blackmagic Design cards and devices.
  • Work fast with native media. Smoke works natively with Apple ProRes and other QuickTime formats, Avid DNxHD media, Panasonic P2; Sony XDCAM, RAW, RAW 2K, SStP (MXF), and XAVC formats; OpenEXR Multi-part files; REDCODE RAW and ARRIRAW files; SD and HD SDI video; and 4:4:4 RGB image sequences.
  • Project Forward Compatibility with Flame Family 2017 Flame artists can now open and restore Smoke 2017 archives within Autodesk Flame 2017, Autodesk Flare 2017 or Autodesk Flame Assist 2017 on both Apple Mac and Linux platforms.
