|Welcome to this Nuke Wiki. It was written to serve the needs of the DT2010 Digital Compositing course of the School of Art Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University. Questions, requests, contributions and suchlike should be sent to me, Martin Constable:|
|The philosophy of this Wiki is simple: it does not seek to give a complete coverage of every aspect of Nuke practice. There is already a good book on the subject, many excellent tutorial videos and a well written and comprehensive manual. It seeks, instead, to give the sort of information that a newbie will require with particular attention to anything that might confuse or confound.|
The structure of this site is simple, it has three main sections:
A light intro to Nuke and its interface. Here the very important Toolbar section resides. In Nuke, the toolbar is where all the nodes are to be found and managing the nodes is what working in Nuke is all about. Most of Nuke's key nodes are listed in this section. They are covered with an emphasis on things that might trip up the newbie. For a fuller description Nuke's Reference Guide should be consulted.
This consists of only one page, that in turn links to three other pages. These cover the assessment of scripts. Of these the Script Evaluation page is the most important. Nuke does not warn you when you are committing errors in your script, and frequently such errors are hard to spot. Students: please check this page before submitting any script to me.
A few 'how tos' covering key compositing operations.
Various pages on a number of workflow related pages. Also an asset download page.
How to use the code snippets
Many of these pages contain short sections of Nuke code. These should be copied and pasted in a blank and new Nuke script at the defaiult format of 2048 X 1556.
