Las Vegas – Here at the NAB show, The Foundry introduced Nuke Studio, allowing users to do VFX, editorial and finishing in a single application. It will be available later this year.
This new tool extends the existing Nukeproduct line and draws on The Foundry’s existing compositing, conforming and shot management technology, as well as adding a host of new features and functionality. Nuke Studio is a node-based VFX, editorial and finishing studio that’s targeted at artists working independently as well as in collaborative teams.
“We’ve spent a long time working with a wide range of artists from around the world to properly understand the challenges and requirements of today’s industry,” says Nuke product marketing manager, Philippa Carroll. “We wanted to make a product that can offer artists a new way of working, that meets the needs of fast turnaround production. Nuke Studio lets you do more with Nuke than ever before. We know that artists are under greater and greater pressure to turn around projects faster and that calls for a solution that gives them more power, control, and flexibility than ever before.”
Key features include: Fluid end-to-end workflow – Combined timeline and node-graph workflow lets artists work the way they want with all the power to create a project in one app from start to finish.
Collaborative control – A hub for total project control lets artists share scripts, work collaboratively with annotations and version up and down with ease.
Realtime timeline effects – GPU-accelerated effects can be added right in the timeline, letting artists quickly experiment, polish and achieve the high-end look they need.
Realtime 4K playback – Plays in-application and through SDI-Out hardware, giving confidence to client attended sessions.
Intelligent built-in rendering – Built-in render farm functionality automatically uses all available resources to enhance speed and performance, either on a single machine or when connected to multiple.
Complete power of NukeX – Jump right into the node-based Nuke environment to build complex comps and shots with ease.
Pipeline friendly out-of-the-box – Designed to integrate with off the shelf or internal asset management systems and pipelines.
