Press Release from eyeon Software

Toronto, Canada: November 8, 2011… eyeon Software, a forerunner of visual effects software development, today announced the official shipping release of Fusion 6.3. Fusion's GPU-accelerated architecture and OpenCL supercomputing, as exemplified by the deep image volume technology, offers state-of-the-art VFX software advancements with this latest edition.

Volumetric LightingOne of the most requested features within the Volume Fog Tool has been volumetric lighting. Adjusting 3D scenes within Fusion’s real time deep volume system and integrating the volumes directly into images with the World Position Pass tool provide an unsurpassed methodology for controlling light samples, scattering, asymmetry, and density. These volumes can be generated inside Fusion or imported via EXR.
