About Fusion 16 Studio. Fusion 16 Studio is actually the successor to 2017's Fusion 9 Studio - the hike in version numbering seems to have been to bring it in line with DaVinci Resolve.
Blackmagic Design's press release describes it as "the biggest update we've ever released for Fusion software" - although in practice, the features aren't entirely new, just new to the standalone edition.
The update rolls out the changes the firm to the Fusion compositing toolset when it was incorporated inside DaVinci Resolve 15 last year.
As well as an "updated and more modern user interface" - a mixed blessing, judging by early user feedback - that means expanded GPU acceleration.
All 3D operations are now GPU-accelerated, along with key features including time effects, dissolves, vector motion blur and stereoscopic 3D and colour tools.
GPU processing now supports Nvidia's CUDA and Apple's Metal APIs as well as the open standard OpenCL, which should improve performance on those companies' hardware.
Existing OpenCL add-ons will need to be rewritten before they work with the new architecture.
There are also more general performance improvements - Blackmagic Design's announcement singles out planar and camera tracking, and mask operations - and improved memory management on large comps.
The old free edition of the software, which worked on footage up to UHD resolution, has now been discontinued, although most of the tools are still available in the free edition of DaVinci Resolve.
