WireFusion 1.0 was released in 2000. This release was intended to be an alternative to Flash, for creating 2D animations and also interactive 3D graphics. The latter required a plug-in for WireFusion, WF-3D. With the release of WireFusion 2.0, no plug-in was needed to create 3D presentations. With the releases that followed, the focus was shifted more and more towards the creation of 3D presentations. Today, WireFusion is to be considered a pure 3D presentation authoring tool.
