Hello! I recently watch a podcast at fxguide where Sam Edwards describes how he uses Flame for his work on Cosmos - A Spacetime Odyssey. Can someone tell me if the workflow he describes in 12:33 minutes into the video, is available in Fusion? He uses color curves to have smooth edges, rather than filters. In fact, he says there that he prefers CC over filter as CC gives him a very smooth edge.

Hey alkesh,

i use flame and I also use that technique. So yes, you can get the same results. It is just a soft edge, and then making the values at 1 on the matte 0.

hope that helps.

Hi Mark... long time!! You and I connected briefly when Toxik was on the map! Anyway, do you know which node I use in Fusion for achieving the same results? Thanks.

Hi Alkesh,

It's just simly a ColorCurves node. ;)
You can change from "Edge detect" to "outer edge" or "inner edge" by adjusting the curves.
Here you go! :)

Hey Alkesh,
Yes I remember talking with you for sure. I hope all is well with you.

I was on my way home from work, and did that quick response. Looks like you have the answer. The CC tool as was said is what is needed. Make sure you use the bell curve, this will give you the exact result.

Cheers
