Most compositing software has relied on CPUs to process the image. This can often lead to long wait times for the user while the software renders the image. However, with the advent of more modern image processing methods this can now be done with easily accessible GPUs, leading to a much faster and smoother experience for the user.

Blackmagic Design has been quietly rewriting all of the tools we know and love within Fusion to be gpu-accelerated. Below is a list of what nodes are now GPU accelerated in Fusion as of July 2022.
