thanks for the links.

Is there a great difference between Digital Fusion & Fusion? I'm a complete noob considering moving over from After Effects because of its integration with 3d apps (especially Lightwave) & I'm completely stumped. It took me a while to get my head around After Effects but Fusion is really comfusing me at the moment......why can't someone create a compositing app that uses layers like Photoshop with all the blending modes etc easily at hand, layer sets, layer masks etc??? It all seems a bit long winded to me but I'm sure I'll get it eventually.

I forget this:

Very good introduction to Digita Fusion 4 by Fred Pienkos.

Quote "...Digital Fusion 4 is eyeon’s flagship product and marks the ninth major release of this powerful compositor, and with the release of Fusion 5 later this year, extreme care and planning went into this introduction to fusion to cover topics that all transfer through to the new version, so you can hit the ground running with the basic knowledge of Fusions workflow when Fusion 5 is finally released...."

Nope...they just dropped the "digital" from the name in the current release. That way they could just call it Fu5--:-)

Seriously, After Effects is good at what it does but after using nodes (shake, or Fusion) it makes you hate layers. AE has it's place though eh?

You can't have a decent idea of what is going on when reading layers that have 5 entries for examples. With nodes it's crystal clear.
