Check Out Rich Nosworthy’s Quickstart Guide for Fusion

Rich Nosworthy Has a Great Quickstart Guide For People Looking to Dive Into Blackmagic Fusion

Blackmagic Design’s Fusion is a powerful and incredibly fast compositor. It also happens to have a free version that has few limitations. After Effects users might find the jump a little jarring though. Coming from a layer based compositor like Ae, over to a node-based one like Fusion tends to leave some people scratching their heads. Luckily there are plenty of resources out there to help you get started, and a new one from Rich Nosworthy is a fantastic place to start.

Nosworthy put together a collection of tips and concepts that he wanted to know when he started using Fusion. The quickstart guide is aimed at using the node-based compositor as a tool for 3D renders, “this doesn’t cover everything but hopefully contains a lot of tricks for new users trying to get up to speed.” Nosworthy says.

Things Covered in the Quickstart Guide:

  • Overview of interface
  • File in/File out sequences
  • Color Correction
  • Working in the node view
  • Viewer Controls
  • Preferences
  • Color Depth / working space
  • Working in a linear workspace
