Blackmagic Design Announces Fusion 8.2 is Now Shipping
Fremont, CA – September 13, 2016 – Blackmagic Design today announced that the final release of Fusion 8.2, its visual effects and motion graphics software, is now available for download from the Blackmagic Design website. Fusion 8.2 and Fusion 8.2 Studio are available on Mac, Windows and now, for the first time ever, on Linux.
Bringing Fusion to Linux is a major announcement for the visual effects industry. Many high end visual effects production companies have built massive custom production pipelines and workflows around Linux. The release of the free Fusion 8.2 on Linux dramatically reduces the cost of creating visual effects at large studios because it gives customers a complete 3D compositing, visual effects and motion graphics solution that can be used on commercial projects without restriction.
The paid edition of Fusion software, called Fusion 8.2 Studio, provides even more powerful features and is available at the low cost of $995. Fusion Studio customers get unlimited free render nodes, stereoscopic 3D tools and other multi user features. The most exciting aspect of Fusion Studio’s paid license is that there are no ongoing subscription, cloud licensing, maintenance fees or additional render node costs.
