Nuke 7 is the largest release of Nuke in the history of The Foundry. Join author Steve Wright as he covers all of the big new features in Nuke 7 such as alembic support, the ModelBuilder node to build geometry from images, normals relighting with the Relight node, and a powerful new suite of nodes to turn your images with depth maps into 3D point clouds, and much more.
This course was created and produced by Steve Wright. We are honored to host this content in our library.
Hi! This is Steve Wright, welcoming you to my Nuke 7 New Features course. This course is specifically designed for compositors already familiar with Nuke. The Foundry really outdid themselves with this release. It's the largest and most comprehensive new release of Nuke ever, with major technological innovations and tons of exciting new features and tools, here is just a sample. First up is Deep Compositing, with the recent release of EXR 2.0 deep images and deep compositing are now an industry standard fully supported by Nuke.
You'll learn all about this extremely important innovation in this course. Another major new technology is Alembic Geometry, a recent new industry standard, it allows 3D elements to be exchanged between different platforms and offers great efficiencies in workflow, render times, and database sizes compared to FBX files. Nukes venerable Tracker Node has been completely rewritten and now supports unlimited trackers, keyframe tracking, a snap to feature, and automatic track averaging, and much, much more.
The all new PointCloudGenerator Node has been completely rewritten and now generates high density Point Clouds with great accuracy. It also incorporates a truly impressive mesh generator for skinning your Point Clouds, replacing the old PoissonMesh Node. The truly awesome ModelBuilder node replaces the old modeler node and allows you to quickly create 3D geometry for your clips. You can use this geometry for camera projection and set extension shots. My personal favorite new 3D power feature is the brand-new DepthToPoints Node.
It takes a CG image with a depth channel and creates a 3D Point Cloud that you can use to line up geometry. You will have hours of fun with this new tool. At last, Nuke can now do normals relighting with the new Relight Node. You can relight CG renders in Nuke changing the light direction, color, intensity, and quality. You will love the new ZDefocus Node which is a major upgrade to the old ZBlur Node. It has major improvements in photorealistic depth blur, workflow, plus extensive new creative control over the look of the Bokeh, that's the look and feel of the out of focus elements.
For those members that have purchased the premium subscription, this course comes complete with over 700 MB of Exercise Files. The Exercise Files are for your personal use only.
