We were able to sit down with VFX Supervisor Adam Clark at NAB to pick his brain about the history of Fusion and its future with Blackmagic. As long-time Fusion user, Clark has seen many iterations of the node-based compositor, which was already a robust program when it was originally authored by eyeon, but says that the game has been changed now that Fusion has made its way into the hands of Blackmagic.

With the massive release Fusion 9, the most exciting addition to the software is its VR toolset, as well as features including support for all major VR headsets, camera tracking, planar tracking, planar rotoscoping, and ProRes, DNxHR, and MXF support.
