LONDON — The Foundry (www.thefoundry.co.uk) has released a new version of its Nuke compositing system that the company says will benefit small and medium-sized facilities working in commercials as well as studios posting movies.
New features, such as a 3D particle system, planar tracking, presets, and audio scratch track, along with speed improvements, combine to save time on short-form projects. Common compositing tasks have also been made easier via redesigned spline and grid warpers, and a new denoise algorithm.
Nuke is available on Mac, Linux and Windows, and is priced at $3,800. NukeX, which includes a 3D camera tracker, depth generator, lens distortion correction tools and FurnaceCore plug-ins, is priced at $6,600. Current user will be able to access all Nuke and NukeX upgrades for free of charge during their subscription term.
