Q: When opening a file ending with the .nk extension by selecting Image > Read, the error "nkReader plugin not found" appears. This happens when using Nuke 6 PLE on a Windows 7 machine. What is causing this error?

A: The Image -> Read function is only used for images and footage. The “nkReader plugin not found” error appears if the user attempts open a Nuke script with Image > Read. To open a .nk script, use File > Open.

Q: In the IBK Keyer video you refer to the “core matte” but I cannot find such a node.

A: The "core matte" is not a node, it is a technique common to bluescreen and greenscreen keying. It is a solid matte that fits inside the key made by the keyer in order to fill in the "core" of the matte. It can be created any number of ways, so I was basically saying "create a core matte any way you wish, and use it here".
