Any chance of an update to Fusion Connect to go with b5?

PostMon Jul 08, 2019 12:07 pm

There are still bugs in Fusion Connect and while it sort of works with Media Composer, an update hasn't been released since Fusion Studio 16 b3 - was hoping this would receive some love since the only reason I purchased Fusion Studio initially we because of the much promoted integration with Media Composer - is BMD deprecating this functionality now that they are full swing into the NLE business?

Do we get a Fusion Connect for the release of Fusion Studio 16?

Hey Folks,

Media Composer 2019 and Fusion 16 are installed on my 2018 MacBook Pro. I have a DNxIO but it is not currently plugged into the laptop. In the AVX2 Library folder there was a FusionConnect.avx from 2017. Not sure how it got there.

I tried to send a 1080p/24 (there is no such thing as FullHD, that was made up by TV manufacturers) clip to Fusion. The plugin made the frames but nothing happens when I click Edit Effect which is set to open Fusion.

Having moved the FusionConnect.avx to the Desktop, l am now going to install FusionConnect 9.02 and see if it works.

This has been a sore spot for me because as I believe someone stated, FusionConnect was a selling point for the DNxIO.

Fusion Connect 9.02 behaves the same. Fusion does not load.

Adding to my frustration, I exported an AAF from MC 2019 and loaded that in Resolve Studio 16. Clicked on a clip that needs stabilizing and did a VFX Connect and Fusion Studio 16 opened but I cannot get stabilization to happen after getting tracks via the Tracker node. I have posted in the Fusion forum asking for help.

Y'all be cool,
Robert

Hi Robert,

FusionConnect was broken in Media Composer 2018.7, I believe (and ever since) until recently when BMD released a FusionConnect 16 beta3 (you can find it in their downloads page).

The point of this thread is that it seems BMD hasn’t updated it again to go along with subsequent betas (and now the final release) of Resolve Studio 16.

But, the FusionConnect 16 beta3 does work with MC 2019.7 with a few minor hiccups.

Cheers
