Autodesk has announced the India launch of 2010 editions of Autodesk Flame, Inferno, Smoke and Flint software for editorial finishing and visual effects systems. It also launched Autodesk Flare software as the creative companion to Flame and Inferno. “This year, we’re especially excited about two developments,” said Pankaj Kedia, Regional Manager, Systems – Gr. China, India & South East Asia, Autodesk Media & Entertainment. “First, we are launching Flare, which will be a great creativity and productivity booster for customers of our flagship visual effects software. Second, we have expanded our RED workflow capability to provide extremely fast and flexible import options.
Both are already huge hits with our beta customers. In this economic climate, our software gives entertainment customers a real creative and competitive edge.” Autodesk’s visual effects systems have been used to create numerous blockbuster films, including all three of this year’s Academy Award-nominated movies for Best visual effects: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Dark Knight and Iron Man. The 2010 releases of Flame, Flare, Flint, Inferno and Smoke are now available. Autodesk Lustre 2009 Extension 1 and Autodesk Incinerator 2009 Extension 1 are also available to Autodesk Subscription customers.
