15K for the system. 2K a year for support.
I’m diving in to some of the training tutorials, right-click on the pic to download the comprehensive podcast:
Interesting to note Autodesk lists a Certified Instructor Program – Systems on their Smoke Tutorial page. Wonder if they will be looking to recruit more trainers now that they’ve unleashed Smoke onto the Mac platform.

And 15k + 2k a year support does not position this system as a no-brainer add on in this wonderful economy. Color is making inroads here in the DC market as a finishing tool for spots and long form TV. And it’s free. I wonder what Smoke will add that FCS 3 doesn’t offer that justifies the 15k…
