Unrivalled speed and power
NUKE 7.0 features the highly sought-after addition of RAM cache, which has been introduced to give artists real-time playback. In addition this major release introduces a variety of GPU accelerated nodes for NUKEX including MotionBlur, Kronos, Denoise,VectorGenerator, Convolve and ZDefocus.
This is a fundamental change that will allow artists to utilise the power of their GPUs to speed up interactive image processing times. When the GPU is available NUKEX will now take full advantage of that power. If it’s unavailable, the software simply reverts back to the CPU without any need to adjust settings.
Day to day compositing the way you want it
The roto tools in NUKE have been entirely redefined to enhance performance and improve stereo support, giving artists more control than ever before.
NUKE 7.0 includes Primatte 5 and a brand new 2D tracker with big updates to the workflow and speed. Support for new camera raw formats has been added including ARRIRAW and the latest R3D SDK.
The SplineWarp node and DopeSheet have also benefited from major improvements.
Blurring the line between 2D and 3D
NUKE 7.0 also brings with it a number of options that allow artists to do more within NUKE. Artists are now able to relight renders in the comp environment using the ReLight node and even model usingNUKEX’s new ModelBuilder.
Both of these additions reduce the need to roundtrip to another tool or hand work off to other departments.
The Deep compositing workflow also sees the addition of the industry standard OpenEXR 2.0 Deep file format, and NUKE’s 3D systemwelcomes the addition of the Alembic file format.
