Eyeon ships Fusion 7

Eyeon Software has shipped Fusion 7, the first full-point update to its 3D compositing package in five years, and one that incorporates Dimension, the developer’s stereo and optical flow toolset, previously sold for $995.

Colour workflow has been updated, with support for OpenColorIO and new Color Space/Gamut control; while the roto toolset gets a new automated roto-assist function for poly masks and support for onion skinning.

There are also a number of new 3D tools, including options to modify geometry with custom expressions, recreate normals and create 3D arrays of lines; and support for screen-space ambient occlusion.

To improve pipeline interoperability, Alembic support has been added, along with a new debug interface for Python and Lua scripting; and there is support for a wider range of native camera formats.

The UI can also now be completely customised via a drag-and-drop system.

Pricing and availability
Fusion 7 is available now for Windows and Linux, price $2,495.
