The Foundry team will showcase Nuke 6.0, a major release of its compositing software, which delivers a totally re-written Paint and Roto toolset resulting in significant performance improvements and shape flexibility.
Nuke 6.0 also includes Keylight – The Foundry’s industry renowned keyer that is particularly good at tackling reflections and hair.
The release of Nuke 6.0 coincides with the launch of NukeX, a brand new compositing application. Building on Nuke's toolset, NukeX gives digital artists integrated access to sophisticated lens tools, 3D camera tracking as well as image and motion analysis.
Building a family of Nuke products enables The Foundry to offer a Nuke workflow to facilities of all sizes – a pipeline that not only fits their requirements now, but can also accommodate whatever the future brings. Nuke will continue to evolve and be a flexible VFX tool ideal for a multitude of tasks, whilst NukeX brings previously inaccessible tools and workflow options to compositing artists, saving time and increasing the quality of their work.
Nuke and NukeX are fully script-compatible, with Nuke capable of viewing and rendering nodes created using the extended NukeX toolset.
