Blackmagic Design is giving away a free version of Fusion 7. That’s right, now there is nothing stopping you from creating some incredible visual effects. 

Fusion has been one of Hollywood’s leading visual effects and motion graphic tools for over 25 years and has been used on thousands of feature film and television projects, including blockbusters like Maleficent, Edge of Tomorrow, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, The Amazing Spider-man 2 and The Hunger Games, as well as hit television shows like “Battlestar Galactica,” ‘Orphan Black” and many more.

The free of charge Fusion 7 is a fully featured solution and not limited in it’s features. It has a massive visual effects and motion graphics toolset that can be used for both personal and commercial work. You can also import and render 3D geometry and scenes from other applications, as well as create your own elements from scratch.

I’ve reviewed Primatte in the past when it was a $1600 plug-in. The fact that it’s free in Fusion 7 just blows me away. Also announced was Fusion 7 Studio, a complete bundle of VFX and motion graphics solutions with collaborative tools and unlimited network rendering for creative teams and larger facilities. Fusion 7 Studio drastically reduces the cost of setting up multi-user studios. Fusion 7 Studio will be available for $995 from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide. Unlike other software, Fusion 7 Studio doesn’t require annual maintenance fees, subscriptions, a connection to the cloud, or per node render license costs.

The $995 Fusion 7 Studio includes everything found in the free Fusion 7 software, plus added extra high-end features such as optical flow tools for advanced retiming, stabilization and stereoscopic 3D production, support for third party OpenFX plug ins, and distributed network rendering so that you can render jobs on an unlimited number of computers at no additional cost. 

In addition, Fusion 7 Studio also includes Generation, a studio wide multi user workflow and collaboration tool that helps creative teams manage, track and review versions of every shot in a production. 

Finally, there is a cost effective way to do VFX.
