Big Changes… Big News at NAB 2012
The annual National Association of Broadcasters or NAB is just a few days away. Rumors have been spreading across the internet like wildfire. The first was the Supermeet.com and CPUG announcement that showed Marc-Andre Ferguson was going to show a “super secret” presentation at the Supermeet. This was later titled “Smoke is changing. Everything.” The rest of the description said we could be the first to see “new technology that connects effects and editing like never before.”
Another blog claimed to have inside knowledge of the changes in Smoke. Ryan Salazar says the news is “AWESOME” and “INCREDIBLE” and that it makes Smoke a “Must See/Must Have”.
Autodesk recently updated their NAB2012 webpage on The Area, with a visual tease of the Smoke announcement. So if you can’t make it to Las Vegas to see it in person, you can check out the big reveal online at The-Area. Not only will you see the big changes to Smoke, but you can also see all of the other presentations that Autodesk will be doing for Flame Premium, Maya, and the Entertainment Creation Suites. I have always enjoyed these live streaming events when I couldn’t attend in person. Check it out the schedule of events when the convention kicks off on April 16th.
If you do a bit more digging on the web, you might run across SmokeisChanging.com. So if you are lucky enough to be attending NAB, and can’t wait until the doors open on Monday. You can register for a preview event at Dream Vision Studios on Sunday, the day before the show. read more...
