What’s new in NUKE and NUKEX 6.3

Released in 2011, the vast array of improvements and additions to NUKE and NUKEX 6.3 will impress and expand the parameters of traditional compositing. includes 3D Particles, Planar Tracker, Denoise, Deep Image Compositing, brand NEW spline & grid warping, audio scratch track, plus much for film, television, commercials and short form projects.
Paint More with MARI

Designed from the ground up to meet the needs of the most demanding VFX texture and matte painting artists, MARI is a 3D digital paint tool that will revolutionise your workflow. Recently released, MARI 1.4 introduces Adobe® Photoshop® layered PSD import and export functionality, OpenColorIO, triplanar projection and masked filters, allowing artists to concentrate on painting detailed, multi-layered textures directly onto 3D models in a fluid and natural way.

Discover the NUKE<>MARI Bridge

Included in MARI 1.3v2, The Foundry has created a bridge between NUKE and MARI that brings the full power of brush based painting to common projection problems. The NUKE <> MARI Bridge delivers a focused workflow to provide NUKE artists with MARI’s dedicated 3D paint tools, making digital environment and projection work more efficient and final composited scenes more believable.

NUKE in Use – A customer case study

Joining us at the event will be Nick Pittas from moeffect. Nick is a freelance VFX Supervisor and long term NUKE user. Along with George Manolopoulos from ABL Athens, they will be showing how The Foundry’s products have been used on a commercial project.
