Hi Moody,

I'd say that over-emphasis on the later question has cost Autodesk a few opportunities in the past few years. They have a commendable loyalty to customers that have spent a fair amount of money with them, but sometimes (IMO) it colours their judgement too much. The most radical moves they've made in recent times have also been the most strategically sensible (putting Batch in Smoke being a prime example).

I agree that batch in Smoke at this price point may be unrealistic, on the other hand it's in Flare, isn't it? Once you've lived in the Batch environment for a while you don't really want to go anywhere else :).

I have to say though that the thought of a Smoke that's properly open to working with desktop assets is a pretty happy one from a workflow point of view.

The linux stability and performance is great, but the hurdles are difficult to live in the current broadcast environment.
