Autodesk ships Smoke 2013 editing suite for Mac

updated 11:23 am EST, Mon December 17, 2012

Final release gets interface tweaks

Autodesk is now shipping Smoke 2013, the latest version of its editing and effects suite for the Mac. Aside from basic editing, the software can handle tasks like motion graphics, color correction, and 3D compositing. The 2013 edition brings in a new user interface, including the ConnectFX compositing system, which uses a node-based scheme designed to keep work within the main editing environment.

Notably, Autodesk says it has implemented several more features since the introduction of a trial download. This includes the ability to drag and drop clips from the source player into the timeline, and an option to expand or collapse the timeline FX pipeline. As a whole, the interface has been streamlined to speed up some processes.

Smoke 2013 licenses start at $3,495. The software requires OS X 10.6.6 or later, as well as 4GB of RAM, 3GB of hard drive space, and a monitor with at least 1440x900 resolution. A US keyboard is needed to properly map hotkeys. Autodesk recommends having 8GB of RAM or more, and a display capable of 1900x1200.
