Blackmagic Fusion is BM’s equivalent to After Effects. Like Resolve, there is a free version and a paid for (Studio) version. The Studio version has better Chromakey, slow motion, tracking and more.
With the release of the beta of version 16 Blackmagic has said that anyone with a Resolve dongle can now have the Studio version of Fusion free.
I missed this information in the initially Resolve release but it appeared in the Blackmagic Forums: https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php…
If you buy Resolve now you will get a serial number so cannot get a free Fusion Studio, however, if you bought your Resolve a year or so back – for a higher price than it is now – you will have got a dongle. You may also have got a dongle if you bought one of the more expensive BM cameras. This is then giving people who paid more for their Resolve a nice “freebie”
The Fusion page in Resolve does much of what you can do in Fusion, but the stand-alone version is not quite so memory intensive, and, of course, you can more easily use it with other programs.
