"Autodesk Smoke is changing. Everything." That's Autodesk's NAB promotion [link]. Sounds like Smoke 2013 will be a significant release, but no word on whether it will be either awesome or jaw-dropping.

There's been a little bit of noise about it [link] on Autodesk's Smoke on Mac forum, though they could learn an awful lot about the art of uninformed speculation from us!

I have no idea what they will announce (my wishlist: Batch, bundled Lustre, more competitive pricing in an effort to grab more market share, maybe Windows support), but I'll be stopping by the Autodesk booth to check it out.

I don't know how much interest there is in Smoke here, but the fact that they're evoking FCPX's marketing so heavily is fascinating. I'd argue that Smoke has quite a bit in common with FCP7 -- it's a solid product built on an aging infrastructure with a loyal user base.

It should be interesting to see what Autodesk will release after raising expectations so high, and where a changed Smoke will fit in the new post-production landscape.
