Focus on users
Nuke gives artists and technical users the versatility and freedom to customise Nuke for the way they want to work. Designed to encompass single-shot compositing or working the entirety of the project Nuke offers all of the tools needed to get the job done at optimal speed achieving the highest quality results.
Nuke’s native toolset includes over 200 different nodes as well as a 3d system, deep compositing tools and full support for stereoscopic workflows. Beyond performance, Foundry’s research team endeavour to reduce the amount of round tripping to other packages by developing 3D camera tracking, lens distortion, realistic motion blur, particles, image warping and retiming. Beyond composting, the Nuke family enables users to conform, review and finishing, all from a single pane of glass.
The Nuke family
The Nuke family consists of three different versions, Nuke, NukeX and Nuke Studio. Beyond the full compositing capabilities of NukeX, Nuke Studio includes a multi-track editorial timeline and full online editing toolkit. Nuke Studio enables onset editing, conforming online and the ability to bash out quick edits. Nuke Studio allows you to easily share timelines with artists using HieroPlayer, empowering artists to view shots in context, identify problems and challenge each other to be more creative. Efficiency and collaborative workflows are the core of the Nuke family. Whether working in a small team of artists or running an effects team, Nuke makes teamwork seamless.
Nuke Studio contains powerful versioning and annotation systems, combined with playback and review capabilities foster quick and easy communication within the team. The Nuke family are platform agnostic, running on Windows, Linux and Mac, designed to function on low spec hardware and integrate into existing pipelines through an open Python API. Artists can save and share custom setups using toolsets and groups, enhancing workflows for common tasks and write their own tools.
Used by most, if not all of the best VFX production studios around the globe, on the biggest blockbuster movies, Nuke enables artists to produce pixel perfect, film-grade results both quickly and to the highest standards.
The cutting-edge toolsets in Nuke take care of the heavy lifting freeing the artists to focus on their art and creativity. A combination of both CPU and GPU accelerated tools enable artists to work at the greatest productivity and meet production deadlines.
NukeX combines the core functionality of NUKE with an out-of-the-box toolkit of advanced 2D and 3D features, reducing the need to round-trip to other applications.
An award-winning node-based compositor, NUKE provides state-of-the-art tools designed to streamline day-to-day workflows and help achieve highest quality results in less time.
