Retouching In Fusion Is Simplified With The Resolve 18.1 Update

November 16, 2022

The Resolve 18.1 update added the Resolve FX 'Surface Tracker' plugin to the Fusion page. Learn how this vastly simplifies beauty retouching.


The Surface Tracker Resolve FX is now available on the Fusion Page!

With the Resolve 18.1 update, the Resolve FX Surface Tracker plugin is available on the Fusion page. This vastly speeds up the beauty retouching workflow I covered in my first two Insights for Mixing Light.

In the original Insight, I showed a (necessarily) convoluted method of using the Surface Tracker on the Color page to feed into the Fusion page. At that time, in Resolve 18 Public Beta, it was the only way to make this happen.

The Resolve 18.1 update makes this Fusion workflow much simpler to execute

You’ll learn how this new setup works in Fusion using the same example from my original Insights – but this time with the Surface Tracker node directly in the Fusion comp. This Insight is an extension of the two original insights – but it doesn’t replace those Insights. They show very important steps and techniques for beauty retouching. But you can adapt that workflow with this plugin for a new, streamlined process.
