Fusion is a digital media pipeline language that also takes advantage of an advanced node-based compositing engine. It permits composite planes transformable in 3D space, but also allows 2D objects to move along spline paths in XYZ space. (e.g. to have text deform on a circular path around another object with occlusion, simply draw a circular spline oriented in 3D space and attach a text object to it). The new Fusion 5 previewed at Siggraph adds OpenGL API-accelerated rendering, camera path import, and masking and B-spline enhancements.
