LOS ANGELES — Foundry (www.foundry.com) has joined the Netflix Post Technology Alliance (https://pta.netflixstudios.com) with Nuke, its node-based compositor, which is now part of the “VFX” technology category. The Netflix Post Technology Alliance (PTA) program helps companies who build and market products used in the production and delivery of Netflix Original productions. The program is designed specifically for technology partners, including software and hardware developers of tools that are used in the post production and delivery of Netflix Original productions.
Products in the PTA program are evaluated and tested to ensure they meet the Netflix technical
and workflow requirements, and that their manufacturers are committed to providing the
highest level of innovation, support and customer service.
Foundry’s Nuke is a leading tool for visual effects used by artists all around the world. Nuke has been integral in the making of VFX Oscar-winning films and award-winning TV shows and commercials for more than a decade. Support for industry standard workflows using OpenEXR, ACES, and a robust Python API and C++ SDK make Nuke well suited for VFX pipelines.
