Fulfilling yet another stellar roster of development, eyeon Software released Fusion 6.4, highlighting another major update to what has been continuously benchmarked as the fastest compositor on the market today.
What’s New with Fusion
- Connect to AVID
The Fusion 6.4 release includes a number of major features, such as the recently-acclaimed eyeon Connection® for a streamlined workflow with AVID editing systems, bringing the power of Fusion directly into the AVID timeline.
- Camera Support
eyeon continues to extend the support of leading capturing technologies with the direct ARRI raw format loading from Alexa cameras, Vision Research Phantom Cine raw loading, together with RED, making a comprehensive color pipeline for Digital Cinema cameras. Only Fusion can analyze, display, playback, compare, and tune the color telemetry and transcode to many formats. With Scopes, 3DLuts, professional 3D monitor support, and added support for Panalog, Sony S-Log, ARRI LogC, Canon Log, RED Log, Viper, it is possible to mix many camera formats and achieve a consistent look. For comprehensive integration, ARRI color spaces have been added to Fusion’s Gamut tool.
- Advanced 3D and Geometry Particles
Considered by advanced artists as possibly one of the most exciting developments in Fusion, Replicate 3D is a new tool that allows for Geometry Particles. To replicate 3D shapes at the vertex positions of any mesh offers unlimited potential. In addition, this extreme 3D tool sports the full set of Jitter and Transform options seen in Duplicate3D.
eyeonScript now contains LPeg, an extensive pattern-matching library for Lua.
- Additional Updates
Support for the PFTrack lens distortion model has been added to the LensDistort tool to further ensure a seamless pipeline with the PixelFarm products.
There are numerous other updates, such as the DirectX view spanning over two monitors, multi-frame editing of Polylines for previous or following key times only, Windows 8 compatibility, and several architectural and functionality updates.
About eyeon Software Inc.
eyeon Software Inc. began in Sydney, Australia, in 1987 as New York Production & Design. Its principal business was 3D computer graphics and digital special effects postproduction for industrials, commercials and feature films. When NYPD needed to create an effect, they built the software and hardware themselves. They adopted previously separate elements into a fully integrated system. As a result, eyeon quietly emerged from NYPD to become a world leader in compositing and digital creation technology, using their core solution, Fusion as a vehicle.
From the beginning, eyeon invested heavily in research and development and, dedicated to the global success of Fusion through the application of leading-edge development techniques, eyeon developed Fusion on the Windows platform from the ground up. Without sacrificing the quality and performance of much more expensive solutions, eyeon provides one of the fastest, most comprehensive postproduction applications available.
