Hot off NAB, Autodesk Smoke 2015 editing and effects software is now available. Smoke 2015 adds new effects tools, 3D tracking, support for OS X 10.9 (aka Mavericks), support for the new Mac Pro and better-than-ever interoperability with Final Cut Pro X.
"The integration of the timeline editor, the visual effects tools, and some familiar desktop tools in one environment made Smoke both remarkably familiar and an entirely new experience for me," said Rich Anderson, senior video editor of Team Detroit.
Desktop Subscription for Smoke 2015 comes in three flavors allowing editors and artists to pay by the month, the quarter or by the year. The price for monthly subscription is $195 SRP and by committing to a one year subscription customers can save more than $500.
Smoke 2015 is now also available as a free 30-day trial.
