View Full Version : Nuke features & Nodal compositing

11 November 2011, 04:55 PM
Just a quick question,

I don't currently have access to Nuke so I can't confirm; the question is, does the standard Nuke have 2D planar & stabilization capabilities, or is it just NukeX which has such features? (I looked on the website but I cannot find a full feature list).

Also has anyone any input on the benefits of nodal compositing, is there anything that you find you can do a lot easier as opposed to layer based compositing?

So far some of the things I've come up with are the ability to construct your own complex operators/ operator groups to perform operations on images, such as constructing your own keying tool, or turning a custom pass into a workable pass for compositing (a position pass into an axis specific depth pass for example).

Answered my own question.

Nuke has 2D tracking capabilities according to Nuke 101.

nuke has 2d tracking, but only nuke x has the planar tracker.

you can download a fully working testversion of nuke from the foundry, you will get a 15day test licences and after that you can work with it as a PLE (personal learning edition). the ple saves a diffrent format as the comercial one and will show a watermark in the viewer

Thanks, I've downloaded the PLE edition.
