Visual Effects Artist Andrew Hazelden Shows a Simple 4-Step Process for Working With Affinity Photo Layered Artwork in Fusion
Andrew Hazelden is a VFX and Computer Animation artist who has created some amazing VR tools for Maya, as well as other design applications like Fusion. Recently he published his 4-step process which allows users to import Affinity Photo artwork into Blackmagic Design’s latest software: FUSION OR STUDIO
In this post, Andrew shares what you need in order get started importing your favorite photos directly onto either of these two programs that are specifically tailored towards motion graphics workflows with After Effects compatibility at their core models.
Process for converting PSD files to Fusion: export as a layered format, and set Affinity Photo’s import setting so that it reads layers. This will create individual nodes in the final image which can be converted with merge tools!
More importantly, it’s important to note that there has been a bit of an increase in tutorials lately with no longer including Adobe products. Affinity Photo is only around $60 or so;
While Blackmagic offers their free version of Fusion along with a new price at just under 300 dollars for Studio which marks good news because freelancers and small shops can afford high-end alternatives like this if they’re looking into creating more professional-looking videos on YouTube without having to subscribe fees hanging over their head when trying different video effects etc.,
