eyeon Software announced today the release of their latest version of Fusion’s new Supercomputing compositing software for Linux and Windows.
Fusion 6.1’s extensive supercomputing approach utilizes the powerful, low-cost GPU to create assets and layers in real time. The extensive tool set that imports scenes from 3D animation packages allows for a much tighter integrated workflow between departments and applications. This open flexibility also increases industry support for technologies such as RenderMan and RED Camera MYSTERIUM X™. Relighting and sophisticated finishing offer more control and transparent collaboration between the compositing artists. OpenCL supercomputing is a fresh and innovative use of today’s massively parallel GPU. By speeding up computationally extensive operations such as Defocus, Fusion 6.1 allows the artist to instantly visualize sophisticated mathematical operations that compile code on-the-fly for use by the new generation graphics cards. "We've been relying on Fusion for all of our compositing work. With 6.1 and ROI, we have been able to go through material much faster than before. The added 3D capabilities have allowed us to make a lot of modifications to a shot inside of Fusion, instead of having to go back into the 3D package for additional passes and such." Oliver Hotz, Origami Digital, LLC Open thinking Fusion 6.1 answers all production trends. Some of the new features include:
OpenCL GPU Supercomputing
RED camera MYSTERIUM X™ support
Particle system and geometry enhancements
Full importing of scenes with matched animation curves
Importing of stereo cameras
FBX multi level materials support from all major 3D applications
Film Grain tool
Hue Curves and colour suppression tool
Local file caching options
Increased metadata support
Coordinate transfer modifier enhancements
eyeon is also pleased to announce that Rotation is on the new Fusion 6.1 architecture. A full feature update of Vision will be available once Fusion 6.1 upgrades and subscription renewals are well underway.
