Well, I just got back from the show floor. First, I just want to thank everyone who stayed home this year! Getting a cab has never been this easy!!!
Anyway, Autodesk has a new product in the ffi family, Flare. Well, i guess it is the fffi family now. Flare is a companion to the Flame and the Inferno, and it's interface was almost identical as far as I could tell. It runs off a linux workstation, but without the broadcast monitor, and it uses the Flame's storage. Basically, it's workstation for assistant's and junior artists. I heard it cost's $40k, but I can't confirm that yet.
