Nuke 5 Essential Training was created and produced by Steve Wright. We are honored to host his material in the lynda.com Online Training Library®.
Nuke 5 Essential Training is designed for digital artists already familiar with compositing visual effects using programs like Adobe After Effects or Shake. This course provides a solid foundation in operating Nuke, using the core functions of keying, motion tracking, and color correcting, as well as Nuke’s key strength, 3D compositing. Tour the Nuke user interface, its unique color management system, and overviews of HDR images, masking, keyframe animation, and 2D and 3D motion blur. Exercise files accompany the course.
