For those of you that have been eagerly waiting for the next release of Fusion, you’ll be pleased to know that Version 6.1 is out now and available for shipping.
The new Supercomputing Fusion 6.1 has new tools to make it easier for artists to complete shots themselves rather than be continually farming the shots out. This takes out some of the issues you get with complex translations and data wrangling between pipeline departments. You can now also import scenes from 3D animation packages which again helps create tighter workflows. Neat stuff.
Version 6.1 also makes the most of OpenCL supercomputing by using the power of low-cost GPUs to help you create assets and layers in real time. This also means you can now instantly visualise sophisticated mathematical operations that compile code on-the-fly for use with your graphics card. Pretty cool stuff.
Some of the new features include:
• OpenCL GPU Supercomputing
• RenderMan support
• Python scripting
• RED camera MYSTERIUM X support
• Particle system and geometry enhancements
• Particle caching
• Relighting 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
