Take the Fear Out of Learning NUKE by Understanding the Basics
NUKE is an incredibly powerful node-based compositing software that can seem really intimidating at the beginning. When you’re first starting to learn any new software, it can feel like you’re drowning in an ocean of things you don’t understand. It can get even more frustrating because you have all of these ideas you want to bring to life. You can see the potential for realizing those visions, but your skills are just not where they need to be to execute. Instead of deciding that this new software isn’t for you, lean into the fear, embrace it and, eventually, master the tools that you need in order to make your creativity become a realized and tangible work of art. So how do you lean into the fear and in this case, start learning NUKE? Take it one step at a time. Really, don’t let the fear of the unknown allow you to accept the crippling complacency of the repetition of what you already know.
