Getting acquainted with Nuke - Part 1

This very basic intro will show you the layout of Nuke, how to import footage, and how to add effects By David Basulto

At this past NAB I had the pleasure of meeting the fine folks from The Foundry. I have been a fan of their Tinderbox plug-ins for After Effects for quite some time. During our meeting they showed me their ultra cool compositing tool, Nuke.

Nuke, originally developed by effects house Digital Domain, is a powerful, fast compositing tool used on features such as The Day After Tomorrow, King Kong and many others. It is node-based like Shake and provides real time feedback as well.

This very basic intro, part 1 of 4, will show you the layout of Nuke, how to import footage, how to add effects, and what to do to change the properties of them. For more info on Nuke please visit . There is a 30 day fully functional demo available. Enjoy.
