Lustre is a color Grading software.

Smoke is an editor with some compositing.

Flame is a Compositor with some editing.

Smoke & Flame are like little brother and big brother... Lustre is it's cousin.

Smoke has a Free trial on Mac that you can download. The others are on Linux.

What Brian said is basically true. Although if you are running Flame Premium version of Smoke, then it pretty much has all the comping abilities as a Flame.

What I would recommend, if you are interested in the Autodesk product line, is to download the Smoke on Mac free trial, and try it out.

[moody glasgow] "Although if you are running Flame Premium version of Smoke"

I thought it best not to confuse the issue.:)

FXPHD has Smoke and Flame classes available this term. I completed the Smoke 103 class and it really helped.

Well, it is much simpler now, without Flint, Fire, and Inferno... :)
But, what I meant to say, is that the Linux offering of Smoke has more capabilities, and that learning Smoke no longer confines you to limited compositing capabilities of the Mac verison.

I would have to strongly disagree, Smoke has nothing to worry about at all, if anything Smoke on Mac has helped it not become a giant paper weight

Seriously though I don't know of any other software that is as actively developed and continually has service pack updates and a new release every year , not only with bug fixes but also a bunch of great new features,

Does that sound like a piece of software that has no future to you?

I highly doubt that Autodesk would spend the resources to port Smoke to the Mac only to kill it off.

All Three Softwares have their own Place. Smoke is Hi-end Compositing and Editing Soft. Again Flame is a Good Compositing Soft has many Flexiblity than the other Comping Soft. LUSTRE is most Probably used for DI.
Now You Yourself Decide.
