That is a true pity, but I must say great work on this new version. It looks like you are about to release a hell of an app. Looking forward to being creative on it.

Thanks for the info! I've been checking out the videos as I can today and I'm really looking forward to getting to test drive this. Looks like an outstanding tool and I can't wait!

Hi Marc!

I thought that was awfully bold of you guys to announce a specific date! So... is there a new target date? Or will it be released "when it's ready"?

I have a non-client project I'd love to do in the new version to give it a run through. Might start in 2012 version and test the project upgrade compatibility - or is that a bad idea for the beta version?

Hi David,
I won't give a date but I will say the pre-release should be avaliable very soon.
As far as 2012 to 2013 it will work eventually but not in the first pre-release build so I recommend you waitng just a little longer to start your non-client project.

Thanks, Ken.

I've heard the conform process is also going through a re-tool, and the beta will be limited.

I'm taking a 3 minute FCP project and doing color/online in Smoke - do you know if XML or EDL conforms will work in the beta? Project is Red 4k, offlined with 720p Qts, we'll want to conform/finish in 2k with R3Ds.

Should I stick with 2012 for this one?

Or, I could conform in 2012, and kick out a 2k DPX sequence to manually slice up in 2013 (if necessary) just to start playing with the new guy? That should work, no?

David,
The conform process is working at a limited state in the pre-release. The relink option will not be in the pre-release so I'll recommend using 2012 or as you wrote render the DPX files and import into 2013.
