Fremont, CA – Blackmagic Design announced that the final release of Fusion 8.2, its visual effects and motion graphics software, is now available for download from the Blackmagic Design website. Fusion 8.2 and Fusion 8.2 Studio are available on Mac, Windows and now, for the first time ever, on Linux.
Bringing Fusion to Linux is a major announcement for the visual effects industry. Many high end visual effects production companies have built massive custom production pipelines and workflows around Linux. The release of the free Fusion 8.2 on Linux dramatically reduces the cost of creating visual effects at large studios because it gives customers a complete 3D compositing, visual effects and motion graphics solution that can be used on commercial projects without restriction.
