2D compositing and visual effects
With over 200 creative nodes, Nuke delivers everything you need to tackle the diverse challenges of digital compositing. This includes industry-standard keyers, rotoscope, vector paint tools, color correction and so much more.
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.
Machine Learning Toolset
Nuke’s suite of machine learning tools allows artists to create and apply their own high-quality sequence-specific effects. As part of this, artists can train neural networks to automatically complete tasks with the CopyCat node and apply this to other areas of a sequence with Inference. Applications of this flexible toolset include upres, removing motion blur, tracker marker removal, beauty work, matte generation, and more.
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.
