[Avid-L2] Re: Fusion 8.1 (free) with Avid Connect officially supported

@Bruno,

Blackmagic has now made the Avid Fusion Connect requirements very clear and official.  And no, your assertion that "You don't need the dongle, Avid's DNxIO box or the paid version of Fusion (Studio)" is incorrect.

---------

However clear and official Blackmagic's requirements claim to be, I stand by what I said. I have the proof sitting on my laptop at this very moment. Previous posts on this subject have backed up this position, so I can only assume someone at Blackmagic is misinformed.

If you need further proof, have a look at this latest thread on the Avid forums.

Fusion 8.1 with MC8.x - Avid Community

@Bruno,


Blackmagic has now made the Avid Fusion Connect requirements very clear and official.  And no, your assertion that "You don't need the dongle, Avid's DNxIO box or the paid version of Fusion (Studio)" is incorrect.

Please see this link:  

"Fusion Connect for Avid will work on Avid MC and Fusion Studio version. It will also work on Avid MC and Fusion (Free) if the system has an Artist DNxIO box attached."

There's no free lunch here -- nor should there be.  However, as I previously mentioned, variably discounted Fusion Studio dongles appear on Ebay quite frequently.  This approach is much cheaper than buying an Artist DNxIO box -- and it has the added benefit of providing the Fusion Studio feature set (which amongst other things, includes the ability to use OpenFX in your comps).

Actually, there seems to be some confusion about the necessity of an Avid DNxIO box for this to work.


And the wording that is in the first post:

This version introduces Fusion Connect for Avid MC on MAC OSX as well as Windows.
Fusion Connect will work with the free version of Fusion and Avid MC with the Artist DNxIO box and also work in Fusion Studio.

You don't need the dongle, Avid's DNxIO box or the paid version of Fusion (Studio) to get hold of the Connect plugin - it's available for free from Blackmagic's support section. This was the case with version 8, but it was never officially stated that the free version of Fusion would work with the AVX plugin - that's what's changed with the release of version 8.1.

To quote the 'latest news' on the web site....

Oops, I guess you can't buy them empty.  Sorry about that.

Re: [Avid-L2] taking a feature project from 720p to 1080p (and ultimately to 2K for distribution)

 

If you simply create the 1080p project, open the bin from the 720p project with your sequence, and open that sequence, all your media will already be online, and the 720p clips will have motion adapters applied automatically to scale up. This is the easiest play, but it all depends on whether you think Avid's FrameFlex is high enough quality in comparison to other more cumbersome plans.

hi all
we have an independent feature project that we are rescuing and are looking for workflow suggestions. this material was shot almost a decade ago on P2, DVCPRO HD, 720p. to keep the footprint low we worked the material in a 720p DVCPRO HD project on our iMac system running Media Composer 7. our first cutdown shortened the project significantly, and the client wanted to somehow bring it back to feature length, so we proposed some additional scenes. these were all shot at 1080p. ultimately we want to end up with the project at 1080p. once we have it locked we thought that we would drop the 720p project into a 1080p comp and batch in the native 1080p material. i know there are myriad ways to upscale - for shorter projects i've used AE to scale using it's own algorithms and also using Boris FX's UpScale plug. this is my first big feature project with this kind of situation din thought i would ask for pointers from the list. what's your favorite workflow?
cheers
