 „The world’s most advanced visual effects, 3D, VR and motion graphics solution!“

In my opinion, Blackmagic Design Fusion 9 represents the connection between Adobe After Effects and The Foundry NUKE / NUKEX. Whereas you have to buy different plugins in other software tools and have to invest a lot of money, Fusion Studio 17 offers many of the tools already built in.

What makes Fusion Studio 17 so special?

>> It offers Out-of-the-Box the following outstanding features:

  • Particle System (2D and 3D)
  • 3D-System with advanced Shading
  • 3D-Integration for cameras and objects
  • Deep Integration
  • Professional Keyer (Primate, DeltaKeyer)
  • Planar Tracking
  • 3D-Camera Tracking
  • Stereoscopic Tools (Fusion Studio)
  • VR-Tools
  • Integration with DaVinci Resolve 17

In addition, it is node-based, like many other professional VFX tools (SideFX Houdini, The Foundry NUKE, or also Allegormic Substance Designer). Therefore, procedural thinking is very much in line with the work approach in production.

The training can be done with the free version of Fusion. Owners of Fusion Studio can use additional features, which will then be discussed separately.
