After Blackmagic Design did make a world-class color grading tool avaiable for free DaVinci Resolve Lite, they now released Fusion 7 as a free version. Fusion 7 is a professional node-based compositing and 3D animation software, and has been used on over 1000 major feature films! Fusion has been used on feature films like Thor, The Amazing Spiderman 2, and The Hunger Games, as well as hit television shows like Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, Grimm, Adventure Time, Downton Abbey and the Emmy award winning Battlestar Galactica.
While Fusion 7 is free there is also Fusion 7 Studio which has additional freatures which come at a charge. Part of the paid version are advanced optical flow image analysis tools for stereoscopic 3D work, retiming and stabilization, support for third-party OpenFX plugins, unlimited distributed network rendering, and Generation for studio wide multi user collaboration to track, manage, review and approve shots when working with large creative teams on complex projects. You can compare both versions here
With Fusion 7 being available free of charge there is no limit to block anyone from creating world leading visual effects. Blackmagic Design believes this will revolutionize the industry and consumers will be able to watch dramatically better feature films and television shows in the future.
