eyeon Fusion for Linux makes its mark on several films
Two box office successes, “Twilight” and “Changeling” as well as “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus,” which is scheduled for a March release, relied on eyeon Fusion on Linux to provide a seamless workflow for facilities that have invested in the platform for render farms and other applications.
Peerless ran eyeon Fusion on Linux for work on Ian Softley's “Inkheart” and “The Secret of Moon Acre.” Currently the facility is using Fusion on several key sequences for “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.” CIS Vancouver also elected to go with Linux. The facility used eyeon Fusion for 145 shots on “Twilight” and 42 shots on “Changeling.”
eyeon Fusion offers a full 2-D and 3-D compositing environment, including a 3-D particle system, comprehensive integration with 3-D animation packages, non-destructive floating-point color correction, paint tools, keying, roto-scoping, advanced look-up tables and character generation, and more. Fusion 6.0 is scheduled for release in early 2009.
