Nuke Foundation introduces you to the world of professional compositing in the industry standard compositing package for high end productions such as The Hobbit, Iron Man, Transformers, Tron: Legacy and The Avengers!

Whether you are new to compositing, or already have experience in other packages such as Shake, Combustion or After Effects, this course is a great way to first experience the awesome power of Nuke.

Digital artist Oscar Knott (The Great Gatsby, I, Frankenstein, JFK: The Smoking Gun) of Cutting Edge not only teaches you the core compositing skills but takes the lid off Nuke and shows the theory underlying Nuke’s design and techniques to help you pick up the more complex aspects of the package in your own time.

In this course you will learn:

  • Confident use of the user interface

  • Compositing live action and CG elements into a shot

  • Basic rotoscoping and wire removal techniques

  • Basic keying for green screens

  • How to lay out your composite professionally
