Hollywood’s Biggest Blockbusters
Thousands of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters and hit television shows use Fusion to create their groundbreaking visual effects. Fusion has been used on feature films like The Hunger Games, Dr Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy, as well as hit television shows like Empire, NCIS and American Horror Story. Fusion also plays a major role in the development of cinematics for major video games such as Dawn of War III, Halo 5 and more!
Nodes are a Much Faster Way to Work!
Nodes are incredibly easy to use, especially as scenes become more complex. Fusion’s nodes are small icons that represent effects, filters and other image processing operations. Nodes can be easily connected together to build larger and more complex visual effects. Tools, images, and objects can be combined in any order to create unlimited visual effects. Simply click on a node to quickly adjust any single part of your project. That’s much faster than a timeline based tool because you don’t need to hunt through nested stacks of confusing layers and filters!

VISUAL EFFECTS COMPOSITING
Advanced Visual Effects
Hollywood’s top visual effects are made up of hundreds, sometimes even thousands of different 2D and 3D elements, blended together to create amazing, realistic looking scenes. Fusion features a fully 3D node based interface, can import 3D models and scenes from popular applications, and has hundreds of tools, effects and filters for creating convincing and lifelike visual effects!
The starting point for all visual effects is compositing, the layering of one image on top of another. Fusion makes it easy because there are only 2 basic tools you need to get started. The Merge tool lets you quickly composite two images together in 2D space, and the Merge 3D tool lets you quickly composite multiple images together in 3D space.
Node Based Workflow
Hollywood’s top artists prefer to work with nodes because they need precise control over every element. Each node is its own image processing operation. Nodes are connected together to create a node tree, which is like a flow chart. Unlike confusing stacks of layers, nodes make it faster and easier to create and edit complex scenes!
Fusion is a true 3D visual effects compositing and animation application that lets you create entire scenes in an infinite 3D workspace. You can create and render complex scenes that combine 2D footage with 3D models, geometric shapes, animated cameras, lights and more. You can even add volumetric effects like fog and mist!
Keying and Mattes
For seamless compositing you need to be able to remove blue, green or any other color backgrounds. Fusion features several keyers, including the all new delta keyer which uses advanced image science, along with a complete set of matte finesse controls, to give you the cleanest possible keys while preserving fine image detail.
Rotoscoping uses shapes to isolate actors or objects from other elements in a shot. Fusion’s bezier and B-spline tools let you quickly draw, track and animate custom shapes. Planar tracking data can be used on shapes so you don’t have to manually animate motion, perspective, position, scale or rotation as the image changes!
Tracking and Stabilization
To look realistic, objects have to move in perfect synchronization. Fusion can automatically track, match move and stabilize objects in your shots. You can even use the new improved planar tracker to replace signs or other flat objects as they move. There’s also an improved camera tracker that analyzes and matches the movement of the live action camera that was used to shoot the scene!
Fusion’s 3D particle generator opens up an entire world of swirling, sparkling, fantastic effects! Use them to simulate realistic snow or rain, complete with physics like gravity, avoidance and bounce. Add behavioral forces to create a flock of birds or colony of ants! Particle systems work in 3D, which means they can swirl and surround other elements in your scene!
Fusion’s resolution independent paint tools feature flexible brush styles, blend modes and stroke shapes that can be modified at any time! Use the paint tool to quickly remove wires, rigs or other unwanted elements. Simply clone one area to another, smear an image with a brush stroke, or even paint entirely new elements!
Fusion’s 32-bit floating point color pipeline, integrated Open Color I/O and extensive tool set for processing true linear, converting between color space and display monitoring, along with Analyzation scopes makes the precise work of VFX color processing easy!
Virtual Set Extensions
Today’s movies often contain small live action sets that look massive, thanks to computer generated extensions! Fusion can import and render 3D models and scenes from popular software like Maya, so you can composite, light and render in one step. In addition, projection tools can be used to quickly render scenes, without having to use complex 3D geometry!
VIRTUAL REALITY AND 3D
Designed for 3D and VR!
Whether you’re working on a major feature film, an epic game, a virtual reality project, or a combination of all three, Fusion has been designed as a true 3D application from the ground up. You get a full 360º 3D workspace, along with the ability to import models and scenes from software such as Maya, 3ds Max and Cinema 4D. That means you can composite, light, and render 3D objects and scenes from other software, all inside of Fusion! No other effects or motion graphics software can do that! With Fusion, you have full control over re-lighting, volumetric effects and image processing so you can save time and be more creative, all without having to render in multiple applications!
Infinite 3D Workspace
The powerful infinite 3D workspace in Fusion is OpenGL accelerated so you can interactively modify millions of polygons, deep volumetric atmospherics, and 3D particles systems without having to wait! You can view previews instantly, and final renders are done in seconds instead of hours!
Highly Interactive VR
With Fusion 16 you get a full 360º panoramic workspace that is completely interactive. You can use the built in panoramic viewer or wear popular VR headsets such as Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. GPU acceleration makes it extremely fast so you can wear a headset and interact with elements in your VR scene in realtime! Plus, the new 360º spherical camera renders out complete scenes, all in a single pass and without the need for complex camera rigs!
Import 3D Models and Scenes
Fusion lets you spend less time recreating the work you did in other apps like Maya and 3ds Max, and more time moving projects forward! You can import cameras, load FBX scenes or take advantage of the Alembic format for animated geometry. That means you can import a 3D virtual set extension, composite it, light it, and render it all in the same software!
Built in 3D Objects
Fusion lets you quickly create your own 3D objects using the built in drawing tools and primitives! There’s even a library of basic objects and shapes, so you can get started quickly. If you type text or import a vector illustration, you can instantly extrude it into 3D space, define the object’s edge bevel, material, texture, shading, reflection and more!
Realistic Lighting and Shading
In order to create believable 3D scenes you need sophisticated lighting tools. Fusion lets you add unlimited, customizable light sources and control how elements within the shot react to lighting so you can set up incredibly detailed 3D sets! Control ambient, directional and point lights, or cast shadows over 3D geometry using the spot light!
Comprehensive Stereoscopic Tools
Fusion uses advanced optical flow tools to correct the intricate alignment and disparity issues that can occur during 3D production. Fusion simplifies stereoscopic workflows by using a single camera and can even create 3D from 2D source material. That’s why Fusion is used by more studios than any other solution to convert 2D movies into 3D!
Deep Pixel Compositing
When you render a 2D EXR image out of a 3D application, you get RGBA data for every single pixel. You also get XYZ position information for each pixel’s location in 3D space. Fusion uses this deep pixel data to let you add volumetric effects to 2D rendered images. You can add things such as fog or custom lights and render it in seconds, not hours, like it would take in 3D software that uses full models with complex geometry!
Atmospheric effects, like fog or mist, can dramatically increase realism in your scenes. Fusion uses GPU acceleration so you can instantly see how the effects interact with the rest of the scene, all without having to wait for renders! Volumetrics can also use world position data from deep pixel render passes so fog realistically moves both in front of and behind elements in your scene!
Multi Channel Render Pass Workflow
Instead of tweaking color, brightness and other image processing operations in a 3D application, you can use Fusion to accelerate your workflow! A single EXR file can contain the diffuse pass, specular pass, normals, world position and more. Each of these can branch off in Fusion’s node tree, allowing you to quickly apply filters and effects, without having to spend time on needless re‑renders!
Unlimited Network Rendering
When you buy Fusion Studio you get unlimited licenses to install its advanced 3D, 32-bit float render engine on as many nodes as you need! You can use the built in render manager or applications like Deadline, Qube and Rush to manage your rendering. Best of all, you don’t have to pay per-node render licensing like other software!
BROADCAST GRAPHICS AND TITLES
Broadcast Design and Motion Graphics
Motion graphics artists and broadcast designers use Fusion to create everything from animated broadcast promotions and station idents, to incredible title sequences and animations for feature films, episodic television shows, and even commercials! With Fusion, you’re not limited to working with 2D elements, you can import 3D objects and scenes from other applications, or build your own from scratch! Fusion lets you composite elements in a true 3D workspace and then apply hundreds of built in effects, 3D particles and more!
2D and 3D Titles
Create amazing animated titles with 2D and 3D text tools! You get traditional text formatting controls along with 3D extrusion, the ability to add reflections, bump maps, shadows and more. Use the follower tool to animate individual characters so they fly on and off, ripple glow effects through each letter, or more. The possibilities are endless!
Add 3D Logos
Commercials and main title sequences often need animated logos. You can import render 3D logos from Cinema 4D, 3ds Max or Maya, or import 2D vector files from Illustrator and other applications. Fusion’s full animation toolset can be used, along with materials, shaders, depth of field, bends, warps, tapers, twists and more!
Spline Based Animation
Fusion’s curve editor uses splines for creating smooth motion between keyframes. They can be interpolated as linear, bezier or as b‑splines. This lets you apply custom curves to loop, reverse, or ping pong between keyframes to create sophisticated animations. You can also move, stretch and squish groups of keyframes to create incredible variations!
The replicate tool automatically creates rows of repeated objects that can fill any pattern. You can create complex and sophisticated looking animations by simply offsetting parameters on replicated objects! There are also randomize controls for adding subtle variations to create organic looking animations that would be impossible on another system!
3D Particles with Physics
Build fantastic particle effects that glow, swirl and sparkle using physics like avoidance, gravity and bounce! Each behavior influences and alters the particles in natural ways. Particles can use 3D geometry, change color over their duration or even emit other particles! Best of all they can swirl, surround and bounce off of other elements in your scene!
Fusion’s vector paint tool can be used to create animated flourishes, glowing streaks that fly through a scene or entirely new images from scratch! There are thousands of combinations for color, texture, and style. Plus, strokes can be made into editable splines that can be animated over time! You can even use a pressure sensitive tablet to control opacity and size of a stroke as you paint!
Import Photoshop Files with Layers
Fusion can import and animate an entire photoshop image, a single layer, or all layers individually! Each layer automatically becomes a node, making it easy to get started. Blend modes are preserved and the individual layers can be manipulated with any of Fusion’s tools! Fusion finally gives Photoshop users a way to animate graphics in 3D!
Expressions and Macros
You can link parameters together and add advanced expressions that control the relationship between them with a single slider! These expressions give you an extremely powerful way to control multiple parameters at the same time. Plus, the built in macro feature lets you create and share tools that display only the controls you want!
Third Party OpenFX plug‑ins
Fusion Studio has OpenFX plugin support and its own native SDK for extended 2D and 3D plugins. Popular plugins from GenArts, RE:Vision Effects, Frischluft and BorisFX are all supported. Native plugins from Flow effects, Karta VR and Krokodove extend motion graphics and 3D beyond other applications.
Automate Broadcast Graphics
With Fusion, you can write scripts to automate repetitive graphics! You can even update them live and in realtime! For example, you can use a Python or Lua script, along with a simple text document, to automatically create and render updated broadcast graphics, titles and animations with things such as the weather, sport scores, program listings, news headlines and more! Now you can quickly render out up to the minute graphics and get them on air in seconds!
