Fusion? 5 is a full-featured, node-based compositing system with built-in backend tools via a powerful scripting engine with ODBC support. A perfect balance between a backroom power tool and a front room client station, Fusion 5 has it all. Not only does Fusion 5 have a real 3D environment with camera/lights support for leading 3D packages, it is also one of the most powerful and intuitive 3D particle systems on the market. With hardware-accelerated 3D capabilities, you can now migrate from pre-vis to finals within the same application. eyeon’s Fusion is a true synergy of 2D and 3D tools for ultimate compositing.
Fusion 5 support for film pipelines is truly remarkable. In our experience, we’ve learned that the best way to work with cineon is the way our clients choose to work. With this philosophy, we have created a vast and powerful film workflow that allows artists to work the way they want. Full-featured Look Up Tables are designed per comp, per view, and even assigned to any individual cineon loader. Choose to work in Logarithmic space, or convert to linear in Float 32 or Float 16 color space. You can even have individual branches in any color space, as well as the ability to switch back and forth throughout the composite.
RenderSlave is a revolution in productivity, bringing multiple render machines online to crunch through endless effects shots. With the press of a single button and Fusion?s network rendering, the workload can be distributed over any number of machines where artists can automatically share the same RenderSlave network. RenderSlave proved its power in 2001, with Frantic Films incredible 6K shots of Swordfish, all rendered using RenderSlave.
With broad support for video and HD standards, and its native resolution independence, Fusion 5 is the perfect finishing broadcast tool. Extensive 3D text capabilities, coupled with a non-destructive paint system, make Fusion 5 the perfect tool for all of your commercial and broadcast compositing needs. Fusion 5 takes broadcast seriously; even the image viewer has built in histograms and our color correction system is second to none with its built-in color matching from reference plates to intuitive multi-point tracking and stabilizing.
Fusion? 5 is eyeon’s flagship product and marks the tenth major release of this powerful compositor, heralding a new image engine and raising the bar on performance levels and memory efficiency. Now, with Fusion 5, process in 8 bit, 16 bit integer as well as 16-bit and 32-bit floating point per pixel. Time-based caching gives realtime playback as compositions are created.
Legendary performance will now be scaled over the network via eyeon’s revolutionary clustering technology. Fusion’s network rendering has always been advanced, more than any other batch-based renderer. With Fusion 5’s new Power Cluster, you can efficiently network multiple machines into a superior working environment. By clustering the network render farm, the network continuously renders the sequence up to date. Time to take a fresh look at why feature films, motion graphics, broadcast design, and television and video post-production get landmark finishing with Fusion. The release of Fusion 5.2 includes over one hundred updates and modifications, such as interface performance improvements in various areas that make the artist?s workflow more efficient. A new Vector Motion Blur tool calculates motion blur from vector data through motion stored in the image?s vector/velocity channels. This will save on the rendering time to calculate motion blur. 3D scene importing allows artists to import more 3D data and animation in FBX, 3DS, OBJ and COLLADA DAE formats. 3D LUTs are now supported in real time, accelerated via GPUs.
Features in the Fusion 5.2 upgrade include but are not limited to:
OFX plug-in support
3D LUTs, fully GPU accelerated with plug-in file formats – support for 3D LUTs in both the FileLUT tool and as a view LUT
Expanded metadata handling for DPX, Cineon and OpenEXR formats
Fusion?s scriptable plug-ins allow for the design and running of image processing tools created in the Fusion Lua scripting engine
Python scripting has been added to control Fusion from web hosts and interfaces to Python-based film pipeline management systems
Tracker?s new infinite sub pixel precision method is faster and more accurate over changing footage
A new Vector Motion Blur tool
Plus additional new tools, and hundreds of UI enhancements and workflow improvements
?Adding features like 3D LUTs, OFX support and vector blur tools are naturally a part of any new release. With 5.2, I think artists will be just as impressed with how much more responsive we have made Fusion. The creative process should always be confident, and our intuitive interface goes a long way to ensuring that this is the case.?
