There are brand new tools such as the video scopes, the pixel analyzer and context sensitive help.

There are also big improvements to old favorites such as the new features in the dope sheet, the viewer, and the completely reworked text node. In chapter 3, we'll learn all about the big new Nuke 8 features for 3D. Here again, we have brand new tools, such as the particle cache node, the edit geo node, and the mass grave node; as well as powerful new features added to familiar nodes, such as wire frame renders.
