Autodesk has announced the 2010 releases of Autodesk Flame and Autodesk Inferno software for visual effects systems, and the launch of the new Flame and Inferno creative companion, Autodesk Flare software. The releases are being showcased at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas, April 20-23, 2009, at the Autodesk booth SL2120.
“This year, we’re especially excited about two developments,” said Stig Gruman, digital entertainment vice president, Autodesk Media & Entertainment. “First, we are launching Flare, which will be a great creativity and productivity booster for customers of our flagship visual effects software. Second, we have expanded our RED workflow capability to provide extremely fast and flexible import options. Both are already huge hits with our beta customers. In this economic climate, our software gives entertainment customers a real creative and competitive edge.”
Autodesk’s visual effects systems have been used to create numerous blockbuster films, including all three of this year’s Academy Award-nominated movies for Best Visual Effects: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Dark Knight and Iron Man. Autodesk solutions have also been used to create Emmy-award-winning television programs and miniseries such as Mad Men, John Adams, House, Entourage and many of the most popular 2009 Super Bowl commercials such as Budweiser’s Fetch, CareerBuilder’s Tips and Bridgestone Tires’ Taters.
