I have posted a new 2-part video series to the Smoke Learning Channel at the request of existing and new Smoke artists.
The big focus these days is on rebuilding sequences using XMLs and AAF with a range of Quicktime and MXF media.
However there are still a large percentage of places that still use EDLs and DPX image files.
It doesn't matter whether the original material came from traditional film celluloids or digital acquisition formats like RED or ARRIRAW. The mediums are converted into DPX to make it a much more workable format in all genres of post production. Feature films, television series, commercials and so on.
Smoke has always been incredibly strong in performing DI conforms with image-based file sequences. The previous versions of Smoke were a strong testament to this and Smoke 2013 is no exception. The only difference is that the workflow is new but relinking should still give you the same results you have always expected.
