Autodesk unveiled the latest version of its Flame compositing, effects, and color-grading software suite, due to ship on April 16, 2019. Flame 2020 introduces new features such as AI-driven map generation, tools to isolate and modify common objects in footage, and expanded Cryptomatte and OFX plugin support.
Autodesk has announced that the Flame 2019.2 Update will be the last version to support NVIDIA’s Quadro 6000 GPU (Q6000). The Q6000 was shipped with the first versions of the HP Z820 workstation.
Any systems still relying on the Q6000 will need to be upgraded to the NVIDIA Quadro K6000 in order to ensure compatibility with future Flame releases.
See the official end-of-support announcement on the Autodesk Flame Twitter account, or on the official forums. If you have questions about your Flame systems and whether they’re good to go for future Flame versions, reach out to Nodal!
