The Foundry have announced Nuke Studio, their new application sits at the top of the Nuke family tree and offers VFX Editorial and Finishing. They’ve taken the best of NukeX and Hiero and brought them together into one super app.
Main features include:
“Nuke started as a tool for people doing film visual effects, but it has been adopted by people doing TV episodic and short-form commercials work,” said The Foundry’s chief scientist, Simon Robinson. “Nuke Studio lets an individual do everything at a desktop, but collaborate with a larger team.”
Robinson said that while Nuke Studio is aimed at short-form filmmakers, the industry might well find ways to apply it to long-form. “People use our tools quite wildly.”
The Foundry has become a key software developer for visual effects and digital production. It has taken over development and commercial distribution of several software packages that began as proprietary software fpr individual vfx houses. Nuke itself was originally developed by Digital Domain. Katana lighting and look development software began at Sony Pictures Imageworks and is now a Foundry product.
