Nuke 5 Essential Training was created and produced by Steve Wright. We are honored to host his material in the lynda.com Online Training Library®.
Nuke 5 Essential Training is designed for digital artists already familiar with compositing visual effects using programs like Adobe After Effects or Shake. This course provides a solid foundation in operating Nuke, using the core functions of keying, motion tracking, and color correcting, as well as Nuke’s key strength, 3D compositing. Tour the Nuke user interface, its unique color management system, and overviews of HDR images, masking, keyframe animation, and 2D and 3D motion blur. Exercise files accompany the course.
This is Steve Wright, welcoming you to my lynda.com Nuke workshop tutorials. In this introductory Nuke workshop, we will be learning all of the basic operations needed to build a shot, including keying and get an overview of the 3D compositing. There is also a strong emphasis on those aspects of Nuke that make it unique, so that with these core principles understood, you will be well equipped to build on them yourself afterwards. Nuke runs on Windows, Mac, Linux and IRIX, but the videos for this workshop were created using the Mac version.
If you are using Windows, Linux, or IRIX, the only thing you will have to keep in mind is when I use the Command key, you will need to substitute the Ctrl key. These videos were made using Nuke 5.1, but you will be using 5.2, the latest release from the Foundry. So, you may notice small differences between your version and the videos. Where there were significant differences, the videos were revised to reflect the latest version of Nuke. Just a reminder that if you are using the Personal Learning Edition, or the PLE version of Nuke, it does not support the Primatte Keyer plugin or the FrameCycler flipbook plugin.
I hope you will find my workshop very informative and enjoy doing it as much as I did preparing it for you. So, let's get started.
