In addition, the included Studio Player provides collaborative workflow features for multi user workgroups that allows realtime playback of shots, annotation, version tracking and more.

Fusion 9 Studio is the world’s most advanced compositing software for visual effects artists, broadcast and motion graphic designers, and 3D animators. Over the last 30 years, Fusion has been used on thousands of Hollywood blockbuster movies and television shows. Fusion features a powerful node based interface, a massive range of tools, incredible VR and 3D support, GPU accelerated performance, unlimited network rendering and more. For visual effects, Fusion features a node based interface for compositing, a true 3D workspace, keying and matte tools, rotoscoping, tracking and stabilization, vector paint, time remapping and more. In addition, customers can import 3D models and scenes from other applications so elements can be composited, lit, and rendered all in the same application. Fusion also includes 3D objects, realistic lighting and shading, stereoscopic 3D tools, deep pixel compositing, volumetric effects such as fog and mist, and support for multi channel render pass workflows. Fusion is also used for high end broadcast design and motion graphics. Customers can quickly create 2D and 3D titles, import 3D logos from applications like Cinema 4D, 3ds Max, Maya or even import and extrude 2D vector files from Illustrator and other applications. Fusion has a complete spline based animation system, replicated object animation tools, 3D particles with physics, vector paint, expressions and macros, and more. In addition, customers can import and animate Photoshop files and even use Python or Lua scripting to automate the creation of broadcast graphics such as weather, sport scores, program listings, news headlines and more.

Fusion 9 Studio New Features

VR Tools

Fusion 9 Studio VR toolset makes it indispensable for virtual reality projects. Customers get a full 360º true 3D workspace, along with a new panoramic viewer and support for popular VR headsets such as Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Working in VR with Fusion is completely interactive. GPU acceleration makes it extremely fast so customers can wear a headset and interact with elements in a VR scene in realtime. Fusion 9 Studio also supports stereoscopic VR. In addition, the new 360º spherical camera renders out complete VR scenes, all in a single pass and without the need for complex camera rigs.

  • Lag free, 90 fps smooth viewing of 360° images and 3D scenes.
  • Support for both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets.
  • 360° image viewer allows rotating the viewpoint of latlongs & cubemaps (same controls as rotating the 3D viewpoint)
  • The Texture tool will now use red-green channels as a UV map, if UV channels aren’t found, for easier stitch mapping.
  • Spherical Camera - renders 360° captures of 3D scenes as a cubemap or latlong/equirectangular image.
  • PanoMap - converts between latlong/equirectangular and various cubemap image formats, and also allows spherical rotation.
  • LatLong Patcher - extracts an undistorted 90° window from a latlong image for paint fixes etc, and applies distortion to map fixes or new elements back into latlong images.
  • Spherical Stabilizer - smooths and stabilizes camera rotation in 360° clips. (Fusion Studio required)



  • H.264 support on macOS and Windows.
  • MXF file support.
  • Improved DNxHD support.
  • FFmpeg can be installed to further increase codec support.



The new planar tracker in Fusion 9 Studio calculates motion planes for accurately compositing elements onto moving objects in a scene. For example, the new planar tracker can be used to replace signs or other flat objects as they move through a scene. Planar tracking data can also be used on rotoscope shapes. That means customers don’t have to manually animate motion, perspective, position, scale or rotation of rotoscoped elements as the image changes.

Fusion 9 Studio also features an entirely new camera tracker that analyzes the motion of a live action camera in a scene and reconstructs the identical motion path in 3D space for use with cameras inside of Fusion. This lets customers composite elements with precisely matched movement and perspective of the original. Fusion will auto analyse the shot and calculate lens focal length and lens distortion.

  • Camera Tracker will track and matchmove live action camera’s motion and reconstruct the identical movement and motion paths into Fusion’s 3D environment. (Fusion Studio required)
  • Planar Tracker tracks subjects and regions in a live action scene and calculates planes of motion. It tracks perspective, positions, scale, and rotation. Corner pinning a new billboard image onto a moving shot or a new sign on the side of a truck is an example. (Fusion Studio required)
  • Planar Transform for Roto will output a Planar Transform node which is used to control roto shapes. (Fusion Studio required)
  • Point Cloud has updated features.


New Keyer

The new delta keyer brings state of the art image science to Fusion’s keying tools. In addition to new image science and processing, delta keyer features a complete set of matte finesse controls for creating the cleanest possible keys while preserving fine image detail. There’s also a new clean plate tool that can smooth out subtle color variations on blue and green screens in live action footage, making them easier to key.

New channel difference Delta Keyer and Clean Plate tools as well as updates to Ultra keyer.

  • Delta Keyer
    • A classic channel difference keyer, with color bias and spill replacement.
    • Supply a clean plate to improve shadows and separation from background (a background colour still needs to be selected to indicate the dominant background channel).
  • Ultra Keyer
    • Improvements allow a wider range of background colours (not limited to fully saturated blue and green).
    • Separate solid and transparent garbage masks.
    • Can use background subtraction rather than post-multiply to remove the screen.
  • Clean Plate
    • Build a clean plate for DeltaKeyer when a proper clean plate isn’t available.


Studio Player and Bins

Fusion 9 Studio includes Studio Player, a new application that features a playlist, storyboard and timeline for playing back shots. Studio Player can track version history, display annotation notes, has support for LUTs and more. The new Studio Player can output via Blackmagic DeckLink and UltraStudio devices, making it perfect for customers that need to see shots in a suite or theater for review and approval. Remote synchronization lets customers around the world synchronize Studio Players in multiple locations. In addition, Fusion 9 Studio features a bin server so shared assets and tools don’t have to be copied onto each artist’s local workstation.

Studio Player is a new playback engine in Fusion 9, giving artists a playlist, storyboard and timeline of multiple shots, version history of shots, annotations, and multi-user collaboration. (Fusion Studio required)

  • A simple single layer timeline: gives the ability to play a number of shots, and set trim for each shot.
  • Per-shot color adjustment controls allow for consistent display of shots from different formats.
  • Annotation notes can be typed on each shot and version, as well as the whole project.
  • Audio: Scratch track and audio per clip.
  • Fully collaborative workflow automatically synchronises reel changes, annotations and colour adjustments across multiple workstations, allowing multiple artists or supervisors to access the same projects simultaneously.
  • Remote sync allows multiple Studio Players follow the master. Actions performed on the master, such as Playback and Scrubbing will also be executed on the slaves, allowing the reel to be reviewed across multiple workstations or sites.
  • BMD UltraStudio and DeckLink playback devices supported.
  • Shot versions can be stored in the same project to allow for quick access to previous work and for comparison of progress.
  • Guide overlays can be customised to show monitor/title safety and show crops to various output formats.
  • Scriptable: Studios can automate tasks using the Fusion scripting engine to control features and clips of the Studio Player.
  • Single, looped and ping-pong playback, with a definable loop range.
  • Ability to view clip metadata, with live update during scrub/play.

Fusion 9 Studio also gives customers unlimited network rendering. This means that large studios working on complex shots and high end visual effects heavy feature films no longer have to pay a license fee for each render node. Customers simply purchase and install Fusion 9 Studio on all of their artist workstations and then install it on as many render nodes as they need, without any additional charges or ongoing maintenance costs. In addition to all of the new features, Fusion 9 Studio has more GPU and OpenCL acceleration, making it faster than ever. Fusion 9 Studio also works with additional formats and file types such as DNxHR, MXF and more. This makes it suitable for use in an even broader range of workflows and provides seamless integration with DaVinci Resolve files.

Now only $299. It costs less than most annual cloud based subscription plans, making Fusion more affordable than ever before. This new low price makes it easier for DaVinci Resolve users to add Fusion Studio to their suites and get incredible keying, paint, compositing, tracking, motion graphics, titling and more.
