The Foundry Unveils Nuke Studio

LONDON -  Leading computer graphics software developer The Foundry has revealed a new product at NAB 2014: Nuke Studio, announced at a special live event Monday evening at the show.

Nuke Studio will give users the ability to do VFX, editorial and finishing in one single application. It will be available later this year. 

This brand-new tool extends the existing Nuke product line and draws on The Foundry’s existing compositing, conforming and shot management technology, as well as adding a host of new features and functionality. 

The resulting combination is a node-based VFX, editorial and finishing studio that’s been designed to empower creative individuals working independently as well as collaborative teams working on quick-turnaround projects in a way that’s previously never been possible.   

What’s really unique about Nuke Studio is that an individual can work on a project from end to end, with complete creative control within one application. It also has a collaborative framework that allows that individual to work seamlessly with a team.

The software contains these features:

Fluid end-to-end workflow - Combined timeline and node-graph workflow lets artists work the way they want with all the power to create a project in one app from start to finish.

Collaborative control - A hub for total project control lets artists share scripts, work collaboratively with annotations and version up and down with ease.

Real-time timeline effects - GPU accelerated effects can be added right in the timeline, letting artists quickly experiment, polish and achieve the high-end look they need.

Real-time 4K playback- Plays in-application and through SDI-Out hardware, giving confidence to client attended sessions.

Intelligent built-in rendering- Built-in render farm functionality automatically uses all available resources to enhance speed and performance, either on a single machine or when connected to multiple.

Complete power of NukeX - Jump right into the node-based Nuke environment to build complex comps and shots with ease.

Pipeline friendly out-of-the-box - Designed to integrate with off the shelf or internal asset management systems and pipelines.

Pricing and availability will be announced in the future.
