- [Voiceover] Hi, this is Steve Wright welcoming you to my weekly Nuke Nuggets tutorials. Each week I'll post a five to ten minute video with Nuke tips and tricks for beginning to intermediate Nuke users. Some of these nuggets will be Nuke tips to make your compositing life easier and more productive. Others will be visual effects techniques that will advance your compositing skills to make you a better compositor, and use can use the visual effects techniques with Nuke or any professional compositing program, so don't skip this learning opportunity just because you don't use Nuke.
Here's a sneak peak at the kinds of things that you'll see in my weekly Nuke Nuggets. In Week One I'll show you how to preview your wire-frame geometry over its 2D clip. An incredibly valuable technique that many have not mastered, because it's so darn complicated to set up. You've probably heard about using the Grade Node to quickly match two clips by sampling black and white points clips from each clip. But in Week Five I'll show you how it works, and exactly how to do it. In Week Ten I removed the mystery behind Premulitiply and Unpremultiply operations.
Then the following week we'll see various workflows for how they're applied to color correction and transformations. In the future there will be Nuke Nuggets on a myriad of Nuke workflow topics, including little-known Nuke nodes, and how they can contribute to your compositing happiness. There will also be a lot of production tips on a wide range of topics, such as keying, tracking, color correction, photorealistic effects and many, many others. I would also like to invite you to let me know what Nuke Nuggets you would like to see.
So, send me your ideas for both Nuke topics and visual effects compositing topics that you've always wanted to know about, and I'll do my best to work them into the schedule.
