- What’s New in Fusion 17?
Compositions you create on the Fusion Studio 17 page can now be saved as a template and used on the edit or cut page! New animation curve modifiers can be used to automatically retime animations when you change their duration in an edit. Audio playback with waveform display makes it easier to create precisely timed animations, there are shared markers with the edit page and more. In addition, 27 GPU accelerated Resolve FX have been added to the Fusion page, including the noise reduction and sharpening tools from the color page! New node view bookmarks make it easy to navigate large comps, the toolbar can be customized with your favorite tools, and vertical layouts are supported in the node editor.
- Build Your Own Effects with Customizable Templates
Fusion effect templates let you create any effect imaginable and apply them to clips on the edit and cut pages! Simply build a composition, save it as a macro, define the parameters you want to make visible, and save it in the correct location. Just drag Fusion effect from the library onto any clip!
- Automatically Retime Animations
Animation curve modifiers let you easily stretch or squish keyframes and add bounce, mirror or loop animations that automatically change when the duration of the composition changes. When you drop Fusion Studio 17 titles or effects onto the timeline and change its duration, the animation adjusts accordingly!
- Sync Audio Animations
The Fusion Studio 17 page can now playback audio from the edit or cut page timeline. You can choose a mix down from the timeline, or you can listen to the source clip’s audio. Waveforms are displayed in the keyframe editor, allowing you to create precisely timed animations that are in sync with the audio!
- Custom Vector Shapes
Vector shape tools make it easier to create motion graphics! You get ellipsis, rectangles, polygons and stars, along with boolean operators for combining shapes to create intricate designs. Grid, jitter, offset and transform, let you customize animations. Shapes can also be used as particle sources!
- GPU Accelerated Resolve FX
The Fusion Studio 17 page has 27 new GPU accelerated Resolve FX. This includes the color page’s noise reduction and sharpening tools, along with lens blur, light effects, color effects, revival image restoration tools and more. You also get texture and stylize, temporal effects, warping and beauty tools.
- Personalize Your Workflow
Node tree bookmarks let you quickly navigate to any part of the node tree in a large composition. Customizable toolbars let you quickly switch toolbars based on the current task. Vertical node tree layouts give you more room to view the spline and keyframe editors when creating animations, and more.
- Hollywood’s Biggest Blockbusters
Thousands of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters and hit television shows use Fusion Studio 17 to create their groundbreaking visual effects. Fusion Studio 17 has been used on feature films like Ant-Man, Red Sparrow and London Has Fallen, as well as hit television shows like Empire, NCIS and Emergence. 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!
- Get the most Powerful VFX Software Available!
Whether you need to pull a key, track objects, retouch images, animate titles, or create amazing particle effects, Fusion Studio 17 has a massive toolset that lets you tackle the most demanding jobs. You get a true 3D workspace along with tools for compositing, keying, painting, animation, virtual reality, stereoscopic 3D and more. Fusion combines effects and motion graphics, along with 3D modeling and rendering into a single toolset. That means you can import and render 3D models and scenes with the rest of your composite in Fusion. You don’t have to pre‑render assets or transfer between multiple applications!
