Analyze source footage to reproduce original camera movement and realistically composite elements into your shots.
With the new 3D tracker, you can better composite elements into a scene respecting real-world position, motion, and scale relative to the objects in a video sequence. A generated point cloud that references locations in 3D space makes it possible to snap an object into a specific location within a shot.
Access, build, and apply custom shaders and transitions using the powerful Matchbox GLSL shader creation tool, now available as a Timeline FX.
Apply a variety of third-party plug-in effects to your projects—from blurs and distortions, to lighting and transitions. Smoke 2015 Extension 1 reintroduces compatibility with Sparks plug-ins for ConnectFX and as a Timeline FX.
Change the way you approach editing effects with a powerful node-based compositing environment accessible directly from the timeline.
With ConnectFX, editors have a customizable palette of visual effects tools for simple transformations, advanced 3D compositing, and plug-in type effects. Move quickly from the timeline to ConnectFX using any segment, adjustment layer, or group of segments, and Smoke will build a node graph representing effects that have already been started in the timeline.
Go beyond 2D layer-based effects with Action, a true 3D compositing environment within the video editing timeline.
Action brings together keying, tracking, transformation, deformation, lighting, and shading tools in an interactive 3D workspace.
Now available as a timeline effect, editors can:
Import 3D geometry and create dynamic 3D titles with bevels, textures, and per-character animation controls.
With support for the FBX asset exchange and Alembic open interchange formats, Smoke can integrate true 3D geometry directly into composites.
