Eyeon Connection dans Fusion 6.4

Toronto, Canada: July 9, 2012… eyeon Software Inc. announced today the shipping release of the highly-anticipated eyeon Connection® bridge to the AVID workflow. Strategically based upon AVID’s AVX2 architecture and eyeon’s 6.4 version release of Fusion™, Connection seamlessly opens the Media Composer®, Symphony™, NewsCutter®, and *Avid DS™ product lines to an infinite degree of creative possibilities.

Since Connection’s announcement at NAB 2012, the professional industry has seen an astounding response from the AVID community, including thousands of emails and forum posts:
“Eyeon Fusion Connection AVX plug-in will lead to a better world of node-based compositing from within an Avid interface”
“ka-boom! the nle war escalates, between... fusion and smoke”
“We have used Digital Fusion for years and have always wished our Avid would work like it in the composite modes with the tools of Fusion. We are excited.”
“eyeon Connection. Things are getting very interesting”
“I will 100% be checking it out because this is the game changer i think everyone has been waiting for.”
“Really smart move by Eyeon.”
“Fusion for Media Composer & Symphony is the big deal here.”
“It's very exciting to consider the possibilities. Having text burst into flame then morph into a supermodel--Fusion would definitely be my weapon of choice.”
“Adding Fusion to Avid is somewhat like the 'connectfx' nodal possibilities within Smoke2013, but still retaining the editing capabilities of Avid (e.g. Multicam, Audio Scrub, VO punch-in, 5.1 audio, Trimming etc).”
Key Features
•Supercomputing node-based VFX and Stereoscopic toolsets directly accessed in the AVID timeline, auto-populating AVID clips.
•Simultaneous use of software on systems or network, with concurrent editing/rendering.
•Drag-and-drop simplicity with infinite scalability via 64bit GPU-accelerated compositing and motion graphics.

•Fusion 6.4 delivers transcoding lab controlled by AVID and Fusion.

Trapcode Particular pour Nuke

La société Red Giant vient de rendre disponible le fameux plugin Particular, cette fois pour The Foundry Nuke, après le grand succès du plugin sur After Effects.

"Particular for Nuke will move you immediately into a powerful and creative workflow. Particular is used widely in motion pictures such as Spider Man 3, Terminator: Salvation and Angels & Demons and in TV shows like Lost. Its realistic natural effects have long solved common visual effects challenges, like photo-realistic rain, snow, clouds, smoke trails and sparks.

Steve Wright, master trainer for Nuke and VFX compositing, comments, "At last, Red Giant has closed the particle system gap for NUKE by introducing Trapcode Particular for NUKE. After years as the definitive particle system for Adobe After Effects, a 64-bit version has been ported to NUKE to add photorealistic particle effects to NUKE's palette. Particular for NUKE is an absolutely essential addition to any serious visual effects studio.""
