Loop For Fusion
Happy New Year everyone!
Loop is a new and free toolset for Blackmagic Design Fusion that allows you to create interesting, wonderful and delightfully unpredictable visuals.
Development version in Reactor now!
It enables you to create "iterative loops" by continuously rendering over itself. You do this by building an effect between a startpoint and an endpoint in your comp. Loop will render out this effect as an image and use that same image as the input for the next render. You can render image sequences and also have multiple iterations per single frame. There's a demo setup included which should make all that clear.
Loop consists of two tools:
To connect LoopStart to LoopEnd, drag the LoopStart node from the Flow View into the
Loop Startinput field of the LoopEnd node (in the Inspector View).
All the clever stuff is handled with a set of scripts controlled by the LoopEnd node. Just press buttons at this point
Also included is a comp file demonstrating "Reaction Diffusion", which is the process used to create this mesmerizing Loop trailer on Youtube:
NOTE: this is a first development version release. You may come across issues, and a lot of planned features aren't implemented yet. However, the tool is simple enough to be reliably used in production should you want to do so.
