Effective immediately, we have acquired eyeon Software and it will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Blackmagic Design. eyeon will continue to develop new products, support its customers and expand its sales channels with the added strength of Blackmagic. This is incredibly exciting for us. eyeon’s Fusion has been used by more than 1,000 Hollywood films and TV shows. With eyeon, very much like with DaVinci Resolve, we now have another powerful software product that has decades of Hollywood success behind it and can be used by anyone. In particular, we feel Fusion’s node based way of working is an amazingly easy and clean way to create. Here are two quotes from the CEO of Blackmagic (Grant Petty) and the CEO of eyeon (Steve Roberts): 

“We’re really excited about the acquisition of eyeon,” said Grant Petty, Blackmagic Design CEO. “Fusion compositing, 3D and motion graphics software has been used on some of Hollywood’s biggest visual effects blockbusters. When used together with DaVinci Resolve for editing and grading, Fusion also gives customers the world’s most advanced tools for 3D compositing, visual effects, motion graphics design and more!”

“Blackmagic Design is the most progressive company in professional post production today,” said Steve Roberts, CEO and founder of eyeon. “With their focus on developing the best solutions and a global network of offices, Blackmagic gives customers the products and services they deserve. The acquisition of eyeon will provide greater development and support of Fusion and Generation, where customers will now have more dynamic, comprehensive, and faster solutions for their creative needs.”
