A major release for eyeon Software, its Unified Platform System of Fusion 5.3 for Linux offers the option to run Fusion on multiple distributions of Linux and on Windows in 64-bit or 32-bit configurations. Solidifying the company’s goal of producing Fusion for multiple operating systems with the same image quality and third party support from a single code source, the release is available under subscription and allows facilities to choose the pipeline set-up that works best for their particular needs.
‘With many studios using different Linux distributions, eyeon has developed a platform system that delivers across multiple operating systems and computer hardware seamlessly,’ says Isaac Guenard, senior product manager for eyeon Software. ‘We also take pride in contributing to the Open Source community in Wine development.’
While running Fusion on Linux, pipelines and technical directors can take advantage of new installers that support all Linux versions including Fedora, Redhat, Centos and Suse (a headless render node for render farms), mixed operating system configurations, native Hybrid CPU/GPU hardware setups and universal plug-in support
Fusion 5.3 is a native development for all Intel and AMD x86 CPU’s and Nvidia and AMD/ATI GPU computer systems running Linux. The release is now available on build 66, the sixth release of its subscription program, to all artists and facilities with a valid subscription license.
