New Features

Autodesk® Smoke® 2015 brings editing and effects together like never before. With the effects tools you need integrated within a standard and easy-to-use timeline environment, Smoke makes it easy to revolutionize your post production workflow. Support for the new Apple® Mac Pro and better-than-ever XML interoperability with Apple® Final Cut Pro® X help you build a powerful end-to-end professional video workflow for delivering your best work. And, with new term-based subscription plans coming soon, it’s never been easier to get started with Smoke.

Key Features

Powerful effects right where you need them

    • Timeline FX brings new effects tools, enhanced rendering performance, and the ability to reorder effects without leaving the timeline.

    • ConnectFX will change the way you approach visual effects when editing with a powerful node-based compositing environment accessible directly from the timeline.


3D compositing that’s really 3D

    • Action is now available as a Timeline effect, making it easier than ever for you to go beyond 2D layer-based effects. Integrate lighting effects, work with real 3D geometry in your scenes, mix multi-resolution video layers, see results quickly and make changes interactively.

    • A new 3D Tracker lets you duplicate real-world camera movement for seamlessly compositing elements into your shots.


Better together
Partner Smoke with the latest Apple hardware and software for an unstoppable pro video pipeline.

    • An enhanced XML workflow with Final Cut Pro X makes it easier than ever to move between editing and effects. Improved XML support offers more accurate translation of speed changes, timeline effects, and improved interoperability when moving projects from Final Cut Pro X to Smoke.

    • New support for the Apple® Mac Pro and Apple® Mac OS® X 10.9 (Mavericks) lets you accelerate your effects workflow and take full advantage of the power of Smoke 2015.
