I, personally, use FumeFX and it's fantastic. Haven't used afterburn though, so I couldn't give an objective opinion. From what I understand, they work differently and are used for different applications. FumeFX is best for smaller flames and smoke elements, and afterburn is best for large explosions. But that's just what I've heard.
