Connect tools and effects together using nodes to create amazing effects with infinite control! Now you don’t need to get lost in nested layers or pre-composed timeline tracks, Fusion’s flow graph interface makes it easy to build your effects!
Multiple 3D Viewers
The customizable viewport can be a single display or quad split display to view different 3D angles! You can overlay a histogram, view different channels or even view a shot in Stereo 3D!
Quickly and easily trim, extend or slide any element or tool in your scene! You can even modify animation using spline curves directly in the timeline!
Instantly jump to any keyframe value and make changes to a selected element using the incredibly simple spreadsheet view!
Use the flexible spline editor to create smooth motion between keyframes! Select from a range of interpolation methods like Linear, Bezier and B-Spline to get the exact animation you want!
Use an infinite 3D workspace to combine live action footage, 3D models, virtual cameras and light sources! Design with greater realism using casted shadows, depth of field and volumetric effects!
Multi Channel Workflow
Import Open EXR files containing multiple 3D render passes with ease! Work with the diffuse pass, specular pass, normals, world position and others from within a single Open EXR file!
Deep Pixel Compositing
Take advantage of both RGB color and XYZ position information in each pixel when using OpenEXR files so you can blend 2D images with 3D elements like volumetric fog and lights with interactive control.
3D Geometry Import
Import FBX scenes to use 3D models from Maya, 3ds Max, Cinema4D and more! You can even import the super efficient Alembic format for animated geometry!
Textures and Materials
Create surface properties to give 3D geometry a cracked, bumpy appearance or a smooth, metallic one! Apply image files, procedural graphics or even video clips as textures to your 3D models!
Make realistic, reflective surfaces like chrome using spherical or cubic textures that surround your object from all sides! You can even distort the reflections based on the geometry! Perfect for glass
2D Compositing Tools
Keying and Mattes
Extract clean mattes with great control to create realistic looking composites! Use a broad range of keyers and matte tools including Primatte and Fusion’s own
Use familiar blend modes like screen, overlay and difference to determine how pixels in different layers are combined! They even work while compositing in 3D!
Automatically track, match move and stabilize subjects in your shots with sub pixel precision! You can also import 3D tracking data from software like PFTrack, Syntheyes, Mocha and more!
Play it faster, slow it down, ramp or fully animate the speed of a clip! Use optical flow for fluid results on extreme slow motion shots. You can even control the amount of interpolated frame blending!
Fusion's open color management tools and support for ACES means you can work in a linear color space pipeline while maintaining consistency and compatibility with any artist anywhere!
Fusion Studio is a complete solution for stereo conversion! You can rotoscope different elements for displacement, add a 3D camera to your scene and then adjust for eye separation and convergence distance for amazing 2D to 3D conversions!
Stereo 3D Disparity tools
Fusion Studio includes specific tools to solve intricate issues that result from live action stereo production. Repair polarization, color, defocus and even timing differences between two cameras!
Automatically repair problems with footage using advanced Optical Flow image analysis in Fusion Studio! Remove scratches and dust, smooth color variations and grain, even use optical flow to create super smooth retiming effects!
FILTERS AND EFFECTS
Open up a new world of creativity with Fusion’s highly interactive, true 3D particle system. Simulate realistic snow, rain and smoke or create explosive 3D motion graphics that sparkle and glow!
Blurs and Glows
Produce smooth, soft gaussian blurs, glows and defocus effects using GPU accelerated performance!
Flexibility in color correction means you work the way you want! Use sliders, color wheels, levels control or curves with color matching options, all done in 32-bit float for the maximum color fidelity!
Transforms and Warping
Scale, rotate and position elements in 3D space using high quality concatenated transforms. You can remove lens distortion in an image and even use grid based warping tools for fantastic distortions!
Quickly layout type with precise formatting control! Animate text in any language along a 3D path or use the unique follower tool to easily animate individual characters!
Extrude text in 3D, customize beveled edges, add reflections, cast shadows and even map video onto your text!
Create 3D geometric shapes including spheres, cubes and cylinders within Fusion, then apply textures, shading and materials. You can even modify shapes with bend, twist and taper adjustments!
Fusion’s unique 3D Replicate tool allows you to instantly create repeating rows of 3D objects that fill any pattern or 3D shape! You can now design 3D graphic elements that are nearly impossible to create anywhere else!
The flexible, vector based paint tool is made for repairing frames or designing entirely new graphic elements! Use clone, emboss, smear and stamp brushes then adjust brush softness, color and even pressure sensitivity!
Generate a wide range of effects from plasma patterns, clouds, water caustics, and heat shimmers all from inside Fusion, without having to buy extra plug-ins!
The spline editor helps you create keyframes and smooth animation keyframes using a variety of tools. You can reverse spline shapes, stretch, loop and even scale keyframes along a spline!
The unique follower tool creates a wave of animation across each character in your text. Design creative write ons, fly and spin each letter into place or ripple a glow through a line of text!
Draw vector paths that objects or text can follow! You can animate and move the path in 3D so it weaves its way around other elements in your scene!
Expressions are powerful scripts that control the behavior of one or multiple parameters at the same time. Use them to create random jitter or other simulations like a spring or bounce!
Fusion Studio includes Generation, a workflow management application that ties your entire studio together. Assign work to multiple artists, compare versions of shots, review and add comments!
Fusion 8 Studio’s bin server lets you share common assets throughout your studio so you don’t have to copy and track multiple elements on different computers.
Fusion Connect for DaVinci Resolve
DaVinci Resolve combines the world’s most advanced color corrector with professional multi track editing. Featuring Fusion Connect, editors can round trip clips and layers to Fusion for adding visual effects and motion graphics!
Fusion Connect for Avid
Send any clip or stack of clips from an Avid Media Composer timeline directly into Fusion. Now Avid editors can have access to Fusion’s powerful 3D compositing and animation tools!
Fusion supports wide dynamic range Cinema DNG RAW files from Blackmagic cameras, multi channel OpenEXR, Photoshop and SVG files, as well as over 100 other file formats!
You can create powerful, time saving Python and LUA scripts for both Fusion and Generation to automate repetitive tasks, create new tools and customize
PERFORMANCE AND QUALITY
Fusion’s resolution independent compositing engine retains the highest possible quality using 32-bit float processing for high dynamic range imagery and transform concatenation, so there’s no degradation at any stage!
Fusion uses the latest GPU hardware acceleration technology so you can work interactively on 3D composites with millions of polygons, volumetric atmospherics, and 3D particle systems!
Place the Fusion Studio render engine on as many workstations and servers as you want and use them all to render a job faster! You can even use distributed network rendering for previews to increase performance as you work!
