1. A good place to start for training on any Autodesk product:
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=7294949&linkID=...

They have self paced training, and also offer classroom, and on-site training.

2. Flint is part of the FFI family (Flint, Flame, Inferno). They all share the same UI, but have different features. They are all geared towards doing effects work. Lack of a timeline, and some other editing type functions. I believe that flint does not have the planar tracker that it's big brother have.
Smoke shares the same UI as the Fire. Mainly geared towards editing work, with some of the compositing features of the FFI family. The biggest difference in effects work is the absence of the planar tracker, and true 3D DVE.

With the release of the 2008 software, the Smoke's DVE looks much more like the FFI's action module. So, the differences between the two software families is getting smaller.

Hope that answers your questions.

I don't think there is any difference in the color correction. Both have standard CC and the Color Warper.

So Flame has a 'planar tracker'? I thought Imagineer apps were the only ones to have that technology?

Actually, it's not called a planar tracker, but a 3D tracker. Imagineer's planar tracker is more of a 2.5D tracker...
Anyway, both are better then the 2D tracker of the Smoke.
