Notable new features for 2015 include 3D tracking, new Timeline FX tools, support for the Late 2013 Mac Pro (model 6,1), and enhanced FCP X interoperability. This copy of the software is a single-user, annual subscription license that includes Basic Support.

Autodesk Basic Support

Benefits of Basic Support include:
  • Access to expedited community forum support. Forum posts are automatically escalated to the Autodesk product support team if the community does not respond to the question within 24 hours. If you do not mark an issue as solved, Autodesk will contact you
  • Access for authorized persons to one-to-one Autodesk support for issues requiring privacy
  • Access to Autodesk online support, including a knowledge base with help documents, tutorials, training videos, and an extensive collection of Autodesk technical solutions and community support forum threads

What's New for 2015

3D Tracking
Analyze source footage to reproduce original camera movement and realistically composite elements into your shots. With the new 3D tracker, you can better composite elements into a scene respecting real-world position, motion, and scale relative to the objects in a video sequence. A generated point cloud that references locations in 3D space makes it possible to snap an object into a specific location within a shot
Matchbox Timeline FX
Access, build, and apply custom shaders and transitions using the powerful Matchbox GLSL shader creation tool, now available as a Timeline FX
Sparks Compatibility
Apply a variety of third-party plug-in effects to your projects-from blurs and distortions, to lighting and transitions. Smoke 2015 Extension 1 reintroduces compatibility with Sparks plug-ins for ConnectFX and as a Timeline FX
New Effects Tools
Timeline FX brings new effects tools, enhanced rendering performance, and the ability to reorder effects without leaving the video editing timeline. With the redesigned Timeline FX feature set:
  • Effects are created using the same interactive 16-bit engine as ConnectFX, and they can be promoted to ConnectFX with near one-to-one mapping in the schematic view
  • Effects can easily be reordered at the timeline level, for a flexible, nonlinear workflow
  • Rendering requirements are reduced as frames are rendered on-the-fly during playback, enabling you to quickly see the results of an effect
Dynamic Trimming
Tell your story more easily with dynamic trimming tools that adjust timing and timeline navigation. Make precise timing decisions visually with Trim View
Accelerated and Optimized Performance
Performance improvements include:
  • Increased interactivity when working with multiple Action nodes
  • An optimized rendering strategy that creates frames in a single pass, without having to render each intermediate layer
  • Easier navigation of large media folders in the MediaHub
  • Improved 3D compositing performance in Action
Segment-Based LUT Editor
Apply LUTS, color transforms, and color space conversions to timeline segments or groups of segments in the timeline using the LUT Editor:
  • Apply LUTs directly to individual segments
  • Add LUTs to Gaps
  • Transition color transforms from one segment to the next
Support for the Late 2013 Mac Pro
Accelerate your effects workflow with support for the new Late 2013 Mac Pro and OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), and take full advantage of the power of Smoke
Improved Smoke/FCP X Interoperability
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. Smoke sequences can now be exported to an XML format with an accompanying QuickTime media file that can be imported by Final Cut Pro X and DaVinci Resolve
Blackmagic Design Card and Device Support
Take advantage of more flexible hardware configurations with the addition of support for video I/O using Blackmagic Design cards and devices

3D Visual Effects Tools

ConnectFX Node-Based Compositing
Change the way you approach editing effects with a powerful node-based compositing environment accessible directly from the timeline. With ConnectFX, editors have a customizable palette of visual effects tools for simple transformations, advanced 3D compositing, and plug-in type effects. Move quickly from the timeline to ConnectFX using any segment, adjustment layer, or group of segments, and Smoke will build a node graph representing effects that have already been started in the timeline
3D Compositing
Go beyond 2D layer-based effects with Action, a true 3D compositing environment within the video editing timeline. Action brings together keying, tracking, transformation, deformation, lighting, and shading tools in an interactive 3D workspace. Now available as a timeline effect, editors can:
  • Create extruded 3D text
  • Displace and warp image layers in true 3D space
  • Add 3D lens flares, rays, blooming, glints, glows, and shadows
  • Work with built-in primitives or imported meshes without leaving the timeline
3D Text and Geometry
Import 3D geometry and create dynamic 3D titles with bevels, textures, and per-character animation controls
3D Workflow with Maya Integration
With support for the FBX asset exchange and Alembic open interchange formats, Smoke can integrate true 3D geometry directly into composites

Video Editing Timeline

Timeline-Based Creative Workflow
A familiar video editing environment enables you to center your creative work around a track-based, nonlinear editor (NLE) workflow with powerful visual effects tools
Customizable UI and Project Setup
A flexible UI is optimized for fast navigation in media, editing, and import workflows. Tabbed navigation makes it easier to move between media management, timeline editing, and conforming tasks. Manage and customize your projects with specialized configuration templates based on industry-standard resolutions, frame rates, and bit depths
Create Your Own Keyboard Shortcuts
Customize your keyboard shortcuts in Smoke or use the industry-standard keyboard shortcut layout based on Apple Final Cut Pro to navigate video editing timelines quickly

Video Effects Workflow

MediaHub Workflow
MediaHub offers a flexible and intuitive way to manage the media in your project-from conform to edit to effects and archiving
Support for Native Media Formats
Work with native media files without needing to convert to an intermediate format. Smoke is compatible 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
  • SD and HD SDI video
  • 4:4:4 RGB image sequences
