Blackmagic Design’s new software Fusion 8 is now available for download as a public beta. This is the first-ever Mac compatible release, with the new version adding stereostopic 3D tools and with design for multi-user workgroups. The beta covers the free version of Fusion 8, and is available for Windows and Mac OS X. The paid version of Fusion 8 Studio will have its own beta, to be available soon, while current customer can download the free beta today. Apart from the free version of Fusion 8, the paid version – which goes for $995 – will also feature advanced optical flow image analysis tools for stereoscopic 3D work, retiming and stabilisation.
“Since we announced our plans to bring Fusion 8 to Mac OS X, we’ve had a massive response from the creative community,” Blackmagic Design CEO Grant Petty said. “This is something that animators, designers and visual effects artists have wanted on the Mac for a very long time. Because it was written specifically for Windows, bringing Fusion to Mac OS X wasn’t just a simple port. Our engineering team has been working tirelessly to rewrite parts of the Fusion code base so it runs incredibly well on Mac OS X, while also improving the Windows version. This new free version of Fusion 8 for Mac and Windows will make it accessible to many more users than ever!”
