Inspiration Top Nuke projects using the power of node-based compositing tools by The Scout 3 months ago 3 min read To most professional artists, the Foundry’s Nuke is the most advanced node-based compositing toolset that gives them the power and flexibility to create with total confidence. The software really does offer state of the art toolsets for compositing, editorial and finishing providing users with unparalleled speed, functionality and collaboration. Needless to say, The Rookies is full of aspiring compositors using this software so we thought it would be a great idea to show if off. Normally companies like to use professional examples of work used in big budget films, but to us it makes much more sense to show what junior artists can do when they get their hands on the tech.Here are some of my favourite projects that have used Nuke."The Last Defender"Created by: Josh HarrisonMember Level: playerFinal submission for Chris Barischoff's Lighting 1 class at Gnomon.
