Description

Smoke for Mac is a video editing and effects software that combines the ease of timeline editing with the power of node-based compositing. We will start exploring this powerful software by create a new project and learn about the key settings. Next, we will learn how to use the MediaHub to import footage and the how to organize with libraries and folders. From there, we will create a rough edit, use the trim tools to refine our clips, and begin adding effects in the timeline. Next we'll shift between our clips with the dissolve, wipe, and axis transitions. Once we have our edit close to done, we'll jump into ConnectFX to modify our clips using powerful node-based compositing. We'll finish our project by doing a global color correct with gap effects and finally render our completed movie. Software required: Smoke 2013.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi, I'm Chris with Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk Authorized Publisher. In this series of tutorials, we will learn the basics of working in Smoke 2013. We'll start by creating a new project and learn about the key settings. Next we'll learn how to use the MediaHub to import footage, and how to organize with libraries and folders. From there we'll create a rough edit, use the trim tools to refine our clips, and begin adding effects in the timeline. Next we'll shift between our clips with the Dissolve, Wipe, and Axis transitions. Once we have our edit close to done, we'll jump into ConnectFX to modify our clips using powerful, node-based compositing. We'll finish our project by doing a global color correct with gap effects, and finally render our completed movie. So let's go ahead and get started by creating a new project.
