Fusion is now free!
Was on the Eyeon website this morning and got redirected to the Blackmagic site, who aquired Fusion back in September. It turns out they're now offering the compositing software for free!
Similar to how Resolve is priced, you can pay $995 for the complete version 'Fusion Studio'.
This is exciting news as we now have a more complete Blackmagic workflow, and the aggressive pricing is seriously adding competition to the post production industry, much like they've already done with their great value cameras.
However, I personally think Fusion will be in more competition with Nuke, AE etc, rather than Hitfilm, despite its pricing. Hitfilm is still unmatched when it comes to ease of learning post production, hence the €100 price drop with Hitfilm 3 to attract as many new filmmakers as possible.
Is anyone considering eventually moving to another compositer? What would be the pros and cons of doing so?
