What’s New in Fusion 17
Compositions you create on the Fusion page can now be saved as a template and used on the edit or cut page! New animation curve modifiers can be used to automatically retime animations when you change their duration in an edit. Audio playback with waveform display makes it easier to create precisely timed animations, there are shared markers with the edit page and more. In addition, 27 GPU accelerated Resolve FX have been added to the Fusion page, including the noise reduction and sharpening tools from the color page! New node view bookmarks make it easy to navigate large comps, the toolbar can be customized with your favorite tools, and vertical layouts are supported in the node editor.
Build Your Own Effects with Customizable Templates
Fusion effect templates let you create any effect imaginable and apply them to clips on the edit and cut pages! Simply build a composition, save it as a macro, define the parameters you want to make visible, and save it in the correct location. Just drag Fusion effect from the library onto any clip!
Automatically Retime Animations
Animation curve modifiers let you easily stretch or squish keyframes and add bounce, mirror or loop animations that automatically change when the duration of the composition changes. When you drop Fusion titles or effects onto the timeline and change its duration, the animation adjusts accordingly!
Sync Audio Animations
The Fusion page can now playback audio from the edit or cut page timeline. You can choose a mix down from the timeline, or you can listen to the source clip’s audio. Waveforms are displayed in the keyframe editor, allowing you to create precisely timed animations that are in sync with the audio!
Custom Vector Shapes
Vector shape tools make it easier to create motion graphics! You get ellipsis, rectangles, polygons and stars, along with boolean operators for combining shapes to create intricate designs. Grid, jitter, offset and transform, let you customize animations. Shapes can also be used as particle sources!
GPU Accelerated Resolve FX
The Fusion page has 27 new GPU accelerated Resolve FX. This includes the color page’s noise reduction and sharpening tools, along with lens blur, light effects, color effects, revival image restoration tools and more. You also get texture and stylize, temporal effects, warping and beauty tools.
Personalize Your Workflow
Node tree bookmarks let you quickly navigate to any part of the node tree in a large composition. Customizable toolbars let you quickly switch toolbars based on the current task. Vertical node tree layouts give you more room to view the spline and keyframe editors when creating animations, and more.

Fusion Connect lets DaVinci Resolve and Avid Media Composer editors take advantage of Fusion’s massive visual effects and motion graphics toolset, right from their timelines! Editors can select individual clips or layers of clips and send them to Fusion. A new Fusion composition is automatically created and linked dynamically back to the timeline. You can work on the VFX and motion graphics yourself or, if you’re on shared storage, let another artist work on them for you. Once the Fusion composition is rendered, the shots are automatically updated back in the DaVinci Resolve or Avid Media Composer timelines!
Collaborate with Large Teams
When you’re working with a large creative team, DaVinci Resolve’s color management and API scripting allow automated creation of timelines for review and approval of VFX. This means shot review, storyboarding, version and annotation can be easily be shared with everyone on the team. Fusion Studio also features a bin server which means to see common assets you don’t need to copy, paste and track multiple elements.
