Autodesk gets serious with Smoke 2015 to go against the big three - Apple, Adobe and Avid - to win over some editors!

In the past, the battle of the Non-Linear Editor’s pretty much comprised of three main apps. Final Cut Pro (7 or X), Premiere Pro (CS6 or CC) and Media Composer. With the move ahead to 2K and 4K post, FCPX and Premiere Pro have moved ahead slightly with 2K/4K finishing capabilities, but as we all know, there’s more to finishing than just editing. You still need color correction/grading, compositing, titling and effects. Now, I know that each application has built in and third party effects that you can use, but for right now, let’s look at each of them as stand-alones. No third-party plug-ins included.
