Autodesk launches new visual effects, finishing systems

Mumbai: Autodesk has released its Autodesk Inferno, Autodesk Flame and Autodesk Flint software for visual effects systems, and the Autodesk Smoke software finishing system. The releases will be showcased at Autodesk’s Asia Pacific Systems 2009 Road shows across Chennai, Mumbai, Hyderabad, New Delhi and Bangalore.

Autodesk’s visual effects and finishing systems have been used to create numerous blockbuster films, including all three Oscar-nominated movies for Best Visual Effects – The Golden Compass, Transformers and Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Autodesk solutions have also been used to create Emmy-award winning television programs such as Prison Break, Grey’s Anatomy, Pushing Daisies, and many of this year’s Super Bowl commercials such as Coca-Cola’s It’s Mine, Budweiser’s Clydesdale Team and Federal Express’ Carrier Pigeons.

"Viewers are demanding increasing visual sophistication," said Autodesk China, India & South East Asia Systems regional manager Pankaj Kedia. "With our 2009 releases, we are introducing additional creative capabilities and new visual effects workflows, as well as expanded compressed media support at price points that make our solutions more accessible to mid-range post-production facilities and broadcasters."

The 2009 releases of Autodesk’s visual effects systems provide digital artists with the reliable, flexible and interactive toolsets required to stay ahead of the competition.
