I'm totally interested in seeing it but I've also banged my head into Smoke for the last few years and it's gotten easier and easier but it's a serious system and it's taken a while to get the nuances and for many projects AE just seems much easier. I'll just have to take a look at it and see if all of the old nuisances are really gone. I don't know how much Smoke experience you've had but it could make some simple things really difficult and do some hard things easily.

Also a big thing to know about Autodesk/Discreet is they change their software more aggressively than any company I've ever seen. A new version will come out and all of the sudden you can't figure out how to insert audio into the timeline. I'm not kidding in 2012 they added stereo tracks and unless you knew what they had done you would sit there and look stupid trying to do one of the most basic functions of editing. And they've been doing this kind of thing for years. This button that used to be here is now over there. They just can't leave stuff alone.

I like Smoke but I still believe there are numerous ways you can achieve the same result. But Smoke has been strong for quite some time as far as having a lot of tools right out of the box. It will be interesting to actually do something with it and see how it all works.
