Ever wondered what Smoke can do?

Autodesk/RedsharkAutodesk Smoke - the new trimview

I first wrote about the new version of Smoke 2013 back in May, but now I've had a chance to play with it there are lots of enhancements and I'm going to be showing some of what it can do in a free webinar

I have been a user and trainer of Autodesk Smoke for over 10 years now and it's amazing to see all the developments that have happened since it was ported to the Mac.

Smoke is an "all-in-one" system that can Edit, Conform, Grade and add complex Effects to media at resolutions up to 8K and in almost any format.

The latest version, Smoke 2013 Extension 1, has a number of useful enhancements to improve your workflow, such as the new trimview which is shown above, and it also has support for Blackmagic Video I/O hardware such as the Decklink and Ultrastudio.

Trial version

You can download a trial version from Autodesks website but it can be a bit daunting at first so I'm very pleased to announce that I will be presenting a webinar at 12:30 BST (thats 11:30 GMT) on Tuesday July 16th.

I will be running through the basics of Smoke and also showing some of the new features in Extension 1. 

You can sign up for the webinar here

Hope to see you there!
