Thanks for the heads-up. Just checked Autodesk web site and it lists Smoke, from what I can see, as Mac only. Isn't that a risk in today's climate ? There are many threads about pros considering a move back to Windows - mainly for hardware reasons ..
price from several online retailers is about $3,500 / €2,600
Some time ago, I followed a debate on
A specialized forum of Smoke users.
They were barkin,,not because they were
Underpowered on Macs, but because they
Could access to much more if there was a pc
Version. Many were pushing Autodesk to provide
A pc version because of the Macs deprofesionalization.
Mac is a cult brand. Like Red. Try to go in the Red
Forum and point that the Scarlet is a so so camera...
They will hang you up in a second. You actually will
So whatever Mac does, they could come with the
Crappiest stuff that clever people will always be
In Halleluia extasis and will never dare to switch
To peecees because they think it's only for
Horny secretaries bying online their pink lipstick.
Mac will survive whatever they do and many users
Will prefer to stay underpowered than switching.
Look what is happening with fcp7.
Autodesk has always been a peecee brand except
For Smoke. That's because Smoke targets a niche
Market that is packed with Macs. If it changes
In the future, it makes no doubt that Smoke will be
Available for pc.
