TORONTO — Eyeon’s now-shipping Fusion 6.3, which features GPU-accelerated architecture and OpenCL supercomputing, tackles one of the tool’s biggest user requests: volumetric lighting within the existing Volume Fog Tool.
According to the company, adjusting 3D scenes within Fusion’s realtime deep volume system and integrating the volumes directly into images with the World Position Pass tool provides a new way to control light samples, scattering, asymmetry and density. These volumes can be generated inside Fusion or imported via EXR.
V.6.3 also offers advances in color handling and new color tools designed to make color matching, profiling and working with diverse cameras and DI systems seamless. Other highlights of the new iteration include THX Cinespace support, Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) linear color space in the color pipeline, new automated color correction reversing and color grading capabilities, and versatile 3D LUT creation, analysis and design tools. There is also Primatte 5, lens distortion and AJA Kona support.
One of the goals of this new release for Eyeon was to push the development of Fusion 6.3 “to possess an authentic 3D environment” with camera/lighting support for leading 3D packages.
