Autodesk introduces new versions of visual effects, editing systems
Autodesk has launched new versions of its visual effects and editing systems: Autodesk Inferno 2007, Autodesk Flame 2007, Autodesk Flint 2007, Autodesk Fire 2007 and Autodesk Smoke 2007.
The latest versions streamline workflow and provide artists with more time for creativity.
To address the need for greater connectivity, the new systems offer expanded interoperability and improved data management, including support for the Autodesk Wiretap 2007 application program interface. Wiretap enables remote project management and third-party file exchange by allowing platform-independent access to media and metadata in the Autodesk Stone file system.
Digital artists can now take advantage of Infiniband networking with throughput of 400MB/s. In addition, Autodesk’s editing and finishing systems provide new support for AAF, making it easier to conform projects that come from Avid offline systems, as well as greater support for Apple Final Cut Pro XML.
