10 Ways to Work Faster in NUKE
In these NUKE tutorials, we'll learn ten tips and tricks to work faster in NUKE, from proxies to expressions to python to render commands. Software required: NUKE 6.3v2.
In these NUKE tutorials, we'll learn ten tips and tricks to work faster in NUKE, from proxies to expressions to python to render commands. Some of these tips will be obvious, like using proxies and the region of interest to speed up viewer performance. Others will be a bit more complex like building an expensive node disable-enable expression control system tied into our write nodes using Python commands. We'll also learn how most 3D applications create EXR files and ways we can increase performance by re-rendering them out of NUKE in its' preferred format. Finally we'll look at a cheap way to improve our motion blur from NUKE's 3D system using a combination of samples and vector blurs. Software required: NUKE 6.3v2.
