Deep Image compositing
Deep Image compositing tools let you create and work with images that contain multiple opacity, color and camera-relative depth samples per pixel, so there’s no need to re-render CG elements when content changes.
3D compositing and visual effects
3D Camera Tracker
The integrated Camera Tracker in NukeX® and Nuke Studio replicates the motion of a 2D camera with an animated 3D camera or point cloud in Nuke’s 3D space, allowing you to composite 2D/3D elements accurately with reference to the original camera used for the shot. Refinement options, advanced 3D feature preview and lens distortion handling improve efficiency and accuracy on the trickiest tracking tasks.
Nuke offers a limitless, integrated 3D environment that lets you create and render complex scenes composed of 2D footage, 3D models, cards, basic geometry, cameras, lights, and meshes. Great for camera projections for set replacements and other tasks where you need to simulate a “real” environment.
User presets and node toolsets
Nuke’s time-saving user presets enable you to set and save tailored node parameters for effects to use across multiple projects. Node toolsets let you automate your workflow by creating grouped configurations of nodes for specific tasks.
Nuke’s powerful versioning functionality allows you to bring new versions of shots into Nuke Studio’s timeline or Nuke’s nodegraph and swap between them quickly and easily. This capability makes comparing and reviewing work at different stages, and work done by different artists, simple.
SDI broadcast monitor support
All Nuke editions provide SDI broadcast monitor support on compatible AJA and Blackmagic SDI-out hardware. With this support, you can accurately check color space and aspect ratios on broadcast content during the review process.
Multi-track editorial timeline
Nuke Studio® comes complete with a multi-track editorial timeline that lets you playback, review and edit multi-layered sequences of video, CG and audio tracks. You can stack unlimited tracks containing as many clips as you need and blend tracks to easily create overlays. Create timeline effects and flip them into the node graph, or edit and render compositions right from the timeline.
Python API and PySide
Available across the entire Nuke® family, the Python API can be used for full pipeline integration and automating common tasks and procedures. PySide is also included to allow users to build custom user interfaces via Python and the Qt frameworks.
OpenColorIO color management
With OpenColorIO (OCIO), the open-source color management solution from Sony Picture Imageworks, Nuke can setup a single profile to provide consistent colors across all compatible applications to simplifying the color management process.
