Interesting indeed.
After visiting NAB, i thought Avid had a strong kit, but since then......

Perhaps I should have lingered longer at Autodesk.

So how has Smoke Linux behaved? I looked at it when it first came out.
Beginning the shopping trip again.......

We are a broadcaster (local PBS) using fire and smoke for HD and SD since 2001. Last Thursday we had a demo of smoke HD on Linux (10 bit) and it was blazing fast. Fire v7 is 64 bit which really improved speed but the same essential product on a 2 processor Linux box is way faster than the Onyx2.
We are now looking for capital to upgrade.

We bought our first Smoke on Linux after last year's NAB, and I've been lovin it ever since. Only thing about Linux, is that it doesn't do Quicktime. We have to use Cleaner to export quicktime files directly from the smoke. Other then that the system is great!

We just got our second Smoke at the NBC affiliate in Indianapolis. Our first was running on an Octane2 so we ended up getting our second on the Tezro... so we are kind of married to SGI for the moment.

Great editors... we do mainly spot work... commercials, promos, and some longer form.

Version 7 is wonderful... looking forward to v8.

A little more "compositing" tools would be nice. The DVE is still kind a limited for somethings.

Thanks for the info.
I'll arrange another demo. We are also looking at a Symphony, but that seems to be around the same price as a smoke. Give or take a bit of Assurance here & there.

Any issues with Linux?

Great thing it became. The Discreet Linux station is getting stronger every day.

We had 2 systems on Octane2 (Smoke and Flame) and just bought 3 Linux (2 Flint, 1 Smoke).
Amazing performance. Even the sparks feel it (Saphire Sparks became up 4 to 6 times faster comparing Oct2 Flame 7.2 to Linux Flint 9.2).

It still has some bugs, but the new releases are fixing the "anoying ones" (they are simple problems on EDL, Paint tool or file export bugs, but all small things).

fyi, telestream released Flip factory 5 that can read and write clips from/to smoke/fire/flint/flame/inferno. With this tools, any encoded media can be imported or created (like MFX, Quicktime, Quantel, etc) without blocking the creative seat. Take a look at the press release:
