Autodesk is introducing Autodesk Flame Premium 2011, a solution for 3D visual effects creation, editorial finishing and real-time color grading. Flame Premium combines the latest 2011 extension 1 releases of Autodesk Flame, Autodesk Smoke Advanced and Autodesk Lustre software into a single offering for post-production companies
Flame Premium gives new and existing customers access to Flame, Smoke Advanced and Lustre — running on a single workstation and at a special price. New customers can purchase Flame Premium software for as little — “little” being a relative term — as US$129,000. Autodesk Flame 2011 customers can upgrade their licenses to Flame Premium for as little as $10,000 per Flame license, adding Lustre and Smoke Advanced to their creative capabilities.
Autodesk Smoke Advanced 2011 customers can upgrade their licenses to Flame Premium for as little as $25,000 per Smoke Advanced license, adding Flame and Lustre to their creative capabilities. Similarly, Autodesk Lustre 2011 customers can upgrade their licenses to Flame Premium for as little as $25,000 per Lustre license, adding Flame and Smoke Advanced to their creative capabilities.
Flame Premium provides the 2011 Extension 1 releases of Autodesk Flame 2011, Autodesk Lustre 2011 and Autodesk Smoke Advanced 2011, usually only provided to current Autodesk Subscription customers. New capabilities include: improved interoperability between certain applications; one-step cross-product project and user profile creation with automatic linking of project data; and unified project and data management, archiving and format support.
Flame Premium also provides cross-format support for ARRIRAW and RED SDK 3.1 update. Flame Premium is certified on the HP z800 and HP 8600 workstations.
