REACTOR for Fusion is now released!

WSL just released the first public version of Reactor. Reactor is most definitely one of the best things to ever happen for Fusion. It is also free for all to use. There are no words to fully describe its awesomeness but here is some info from the press release:

What is Reactor?

Created by the We Suck Less Fusion community, i.e. the people right here, Reactor is a free and open source package manager for Fusion (Free) and Fusion Studio. Reactor streamlines the installation, distribution and management of 3rd party content for Fusion through the use of "Atom" packages that are synced with an online Git repository.

Why use Reactor?

With Reactor, third party Fusion content such as Scripts and Plugins can be installed with a click of a button, rather than having to manually download, copy and edit individual files.

Why did WSL create Reactor?

Recent times have been very exciting for Fusion users. Fusion has been going from strength to strength - as well as from platform to platform - with every recent release. WSL as a community recognizes this and wishes to provide and maintain an open platform to help converge the many artists and efforts that make Fusion even better. The development and public release of Reactor expresses our commitment to that goal.

We've been working very hard to not only get you this terrific tool, but also to gather the content that comes with it.

What will I get?

Reactor's initial release comes with such gems as the Fusion Cryptomatte implementation by Cedric Duriau and Kristof Indeherberge, the Krokodove plugins from Komkom Doorn, and the actual Fusion 3D water setup as it was used on Roland Emmerich's Anonymous, courtesy of Uncharted Territory.

Tool collections by Muse VFX to create so called "glitch" and other effects and old time WSL favourites such as KAK, Time Machine and Tracker functionality extensions. Andrew Hazelden has been recreating legendary Fusion Easter Eggs with fun and educational scripts to complete this first release. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.


So, if you still don't have Reactor do yourselves a favor, head to the official page, download and install this amazing new master tool from the "We Suck Less" Fusion community. :D

That's fantastic! Thanks so much.

Any suggested must-haves? I'm formiliar with krokodove but would love to hear what other gems people are using, and how/why.

Just install Reactor and try some!

Most of the content has some descriptions or links to online documentation. Installing tools takes seconds, uninstalling them is even quicker :)

I hope a moderator will see this, have the necessary discussion with BMD and sticky it. It is to everyone's in the expanding Fusion community benefit.

Thank You, this is a great helper. I wasn't aware that there are so many fuses and useful additions available for Fusion. Kudos to the WSL community and developers :D

You have to drag and drop it into the console tab.

The attachment Console Tab.jpg is no longer available

Not the flow tab.



That is exactly what I did, but anywhere on the Console tab gave the same error.
