- Understand node-based compositing
- Build and animate a title
- Track and replace a screen
- Learn how to maximize image resolution
- Create high-quality green screen composites
Composite & Animate Titles
In this tutorial, you’ll hit the ground running by learning the process of nodal compositing as you add a title with a background over a video clip, then animate the title using both keyframes and a modifier. You’ll also learn about the image processing pipeline and how to best move between the Edit page and the Fusion page.
Restore or Remove Objects
Once you have a solid grasp of Fusion’s text tools, you’ll move into the realm of visual effects by combining a planar tracker with paint tools to repair the cracked facade of a building. The fundamentals you learn in this lesson can be applied to almost any situation where an object needs to be removed from a shot.
Another common effects task is screen replacement, and you’ll learn how to approach a shaky hand-held shot using Fusion’s powerful Delta Keyer in conjunction with trackers and animated masks, before jumping into the Color Page to color correct the composited image.
Create High-Quality Green Screen Composites
You’ll learn important tradeoffs between speed and flexibility when it comes to maximizing image resolution before tackling a challenging green screen shot. You’ll learn how to work with matte controls; improve hair detail and animate holdout and garbage mattes to create a convincing final composite.

I gave this a thumbs up before a couple of years ago but had to review this tutorial again because I couldn’t find anything on tracking and painting in Resolve/Fusion on Youtube that was as clear, concise and easy to follow as this tutorial.
Thank you once again👍🏿👍🏿

This set of tutorials is terrifically helpful. Mark manages to make difficult topics very clear, not an easy thing to do with Fusion. The choice of topics seems excellent–tasks that arise repeatedly in many projects. Great job!

Great tutorials as always from Ripple.
Hope to see more great tutorials including points as raised by Francisco in the coming future.

Just an amazing, well detailed tutorial.. I cannot wait for the next Fusion tutorial by Mark Spencer!!

Possibly the simplest overview of common Fusion use-cases. And in pure Mark Spencer style, very thorough. I’d highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn more about Fusion in the Resolve workflow.

An outstanding overview of Fusion in Resolve. Clear and concise with a narration that was neither too slow nor fast. Especially appreciated the explanation of how Fusion interacts with the Edit page and the Color page. All the other reviews here just echo my view of the quality and value of this training.

This is the clearest and most concise tutorial on Fusion that I’ve seen so far. With regards to motion graphics and beyond, it demystifies the use of nodes vs the timeline. Since Fusion is so “big” it can’t include everything. However, it does include a number of real-world examples to get you started so that you can hopefully fly on your own.

This is a good basic tutorial series. I have watched a lot of basic tutorials for Fusion and I like this one better because Mark knows how to structure a lesson. If you have watched any of his tutorials here or on youtube, you will know what to expect.
Something that you could have talked about, a very simple thing but it is a time saver because it is a step you will repeat a lot when compositing, is instead of manually adding merges you can take the output of a node and pipe it to the output of a second node and a merge will be automatically created.
I hope to see more, mainly particles and maybe problem solving.

Thank you for releasing a Fusion training title! I’ve waited years and bought Warp Speed Fusion as soon as I could.
I’ll be honest; I initially thought the runtime was too short. But after watching Mark’s course I’m happy to admit that I was wrong. Warp Speed Fusion works so well because it is a solid introduction without being overwhelming.
I enjoyed this course and highly recommend it.

Thank you for that great tutorial. I am using Resolve for quite a while. But it was realy difficult to find a way to using Fusion inside it.
This course helped me to understand the basic of how things work in conjunction with the edit tab and color correction.
Every thing is explained well.
I am looking forward to the next course. Maybe 3d with animated cameras?
Thank you very much!
Many greatings from Germany!

A very useful and easy to understand learning solution that undoubtedly leads you to understand the power of this software at your own pace. At home with a coffee, pleasant voice very well explained and totally recommended.
Una solución muy útil de aprendizaje y de fácil comprensión que sin duda te lleva a comprender el poder de este software a tu ritmo. En casa con un café, voz agradable muy bien explicado y totalmente recomendable.

Excellent tutorial. I am one of the new people to Fusion having been familiar with Motion in the past. I was very interested in the Planar tracker section covering screen replacements and object removal. These skills are critical now in compositing. Fusion is a very deep program, but brilliant. Combined with Da Vinci Resolve it is the perfect compositing application. Really love it and thanks Mark for another in-depth tutorial.

Just completed the Fusion training and I found it very helpful. Fusion is not for the faint of heart, and he really pretty much nailed it. He did a really good job explaining the options one might have as one approaches how to achieve a certain FX effect, something that others often fail to do, so kudos for that!

This is a good tutorial. It covers what needs to be covered to get up and running with Fusion. I really like how it’s updated and you can actually learn how to go about the pipeline in Resolve 15. This is key for most of us working Color in Resolve, because the big advantage of understanding the three possible workflows thru and from Fusion to Color to Edit and back is key to using this and future versions of Resolve.
I woiuld love to see a “Problem fixing” tutorial for Fusion (like you have on Resolve). Stuff like actual more complciated excercises, screen insertions where you loose most of the tracking points, images which can’t be easily tracked by the software (or at all), integration issues when working with stuff, rotoscoping, painting and working with mattes.
I think there is room for that, and if it’s achieved the same way Warp Fusion goes, you can’t go wrong!
