Equipment Details

Discreet Smoke/Flame v7 on a Tezro with 3gb/ram and about 4gb's of drive space/Wacom tablet/SGI GDM-FW9011 monitor.

Model Details

smoke® was designed with the understanding that you can't always choose the job that comes in your door. Short form, long form, creative editorial, intensive graphics and effects work; every program, not just conformed but finished with pristine images at full bandwidth RGB 4:4:4.

As an all-in-one integrated creative editing and finishing solution or as a the hub in a distributed post facility, smoke delivers OMFI composition import from Avid offline NLEs, unlimited layers of vertical editing and nested containers, sophisticated visual effects accessible from the timeline, and unmatched price performance at HD and 601.

smoke takes advantage of the Academy Award®-winning visual effects technology found in Discreet's flame® system and Discreet's Multi-Master Editing™ capabilities: A single system, a single finish, delivering multiple masters, from HD to 601.
