Adobe releases Fuse
Adobe released a product based on our data-driven 3D modeling research at Stanford. The original research was described in papers published at SIGGRAPH Asia 2010 and SIGGRAPH 2011, and was the subject of Siddhartha Chaudhuri’s PhD thesis. Our technology was licensed in 2012 by Mixamo, a start-up company led by Stefano Corazza. Mixamo turned the technology into a product called Fuse. Fuse became a widely used 3D character modeling tool and led to Adobe’s acquisition of Mixamo earlier this year. Fuse has now been rebranded and launched as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud.
