Compositing Bites - Blackmagic Fusion
Some people have asked me about Blackmagic Fusion and why I am not using that for my Compositing Bites series. The simple reason is the Nuke is a little bit better suited for peeking under hood of what a node does.
The whole point of the series is to demystify compositng at the basic level. It really does not matter which compositing software you use.
1.0 + 1.0 in floating point math is the same everwhere.
So if you are more comfortable in Fusion by all means follow along in Fusion. The theory is the same. Only the way to get there is a little different.
Nevertheless, I recorded a quick overview of how the four building blocks I use in Nuke (Expression, MergeExpression, Matrix and ColorMatrix) behave in Fusion.
I rebuilt the Slice tool I use in Nuke so you can use the exact same thing in Fusion. Grab the Slice macro and put it in your Macros folder (
~/Library/Application Support/Blackmagic Design/Fusion/Macros on a Mac for example). It will be available in your Tools under Macros/Slice.
