Great stuff, but -- why are these not available for offline viewing?

Commute + iPad = Offline viewing. Maybe it's just me?

Thank you for the videos, I really made learning the basics of editing in smoke better. I was able to cut together my project piece that I shot just to use in smoke.

One question, you were cutting video but no audio. I would be interested in seeing how you handle the audio side of the editing. Larry Jordan wasn't keen on how you edit with audio in smoke, and I would be curious to see if you have some tips.

Very good! I will look through these videos tomorrow again. Thanks for putting this series together. Even these editing tools are deep, just like the rest of smoke.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for putting this information into such a concise format. Very useful, and some nice workflow tips. I can't wait for the final release, I've been using 2013 more than my 2012 license. ConnectFx is really great.

Awesome for fcp users! Not so handy for classic or flame key users.
