In this NUKE Tutorial, we'll learn how to use the new features introduced in NUKE 6.3, like 3D particles, the Planar Tracker, Denoise, Spline Warp, Audio Read, presets and more. We'll begin this project by jumping into the new features only in NUKEX, including the all-new 3D particle system, which allows for new effects like rain, snow, fog, or fire. From there, we will use the new Planar tracker, also only in NUKEX, to track a planar surface that leaves the frame. Then we'll learn how to use the new Denoise node in NUKEX to remove noise while preserving an incredible amount of detail. From there, we will dive into the NUKE features like the new Spline and Grid Warp nodes and the new Audio Read node. Finally, we'll learn how to speed up our workflow tremendously with user presets and toolsets. We'll end the tutorial with a look at the new 3D displacement tessellation features. Software required: NUKE 6.3v1 or NUKEX 6.3v1.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, I'm Chris from Digital-Tutors. In this series of lessons, we'll learn how to use the new features introduced in NUKE 6. 3. Using these new features, we will be able to create the effects in NUKE that were difficult or impossible to do before. We'll begin this project by jumping into the new features only in NUKEX, including the all new 3D particle system, which allows for new effects like rain, snow, fog or fire. From there, we will use the new planar tracker, also in only in NUKEX, to track a planar surface that leaves the frame. Finally, we'll learn how to use the new Denoise node in NUKEX to remove noise while preserving an incredible amount of detail. From there, we will dive into the NUKE features, like the new Spline and Gridwork nodes, and the new Audio Read node. Finally, we'll learn how to speed up our workflow tremendously with User Presets and Tool Sets. We'll end with a look at the new 3D displacement tessellation features. This series of lessons will get you up to speed quickly with the improvements available in NUKE and NUKEX 6. 3. This will allow us to complete our compositing work much faster and with much more artistic freedom. So with that, let's go ahead and get started.
