Tip #1350: DaVinci Resolve Fusion
Fusion: Free, node-based, professional-grade effects software.
If you are want to extend your effects expertise beyond your NLE, an excellent place to start is Blackmagic Design’s Fusion.
Fusion is built into DaVinci Resolve and features a node-based workflow with hundreds of 2D and 3D tools. Fusion is ideal for everything from quick fixes such as retouching and repairing shots to creating true Hollywood caliber effects.
Fusion uses a flow chart called a node tree that visually maps out how effects are connected and work together. Nodes are like building blocks that represent effect tools, generators, transforms, masks and more. There are no confusing stacks of nested layers and hidden menus! You build effects by stringing nodes together one after the other.
You can also use Fusion to create 2D and 3D text, as well as add and track infographics.
Best of all, you can get started with Fusion for free.
