Autodesk® Smoke® 2013 Pre‐Release Trial
The all‐new Autodesk Smoke 2013 pre‐release trial software is still under construction!
It is a fully functional release of the current 2013 version of the software. However not all intended features for the Autodesk Smoke 2013 release version of the software are included. Over the course of the pre‐release trial period Autodesk intends to introduce additional features.
NOTE: Given the pre‐release nature of the software certain parts of the application have not been fully tested and you may experience instability, slowness or crashes. We encourage you to report such instances to the AREA forum to help us better test the final release version.
For playback performance, we recommend installing Smoke with a separate storage volume/partition for the Media Storage location (such as on an external ThunderboltTM technology drive or array).
