Description

Sometimes, when you know a software with a profoundly different workflow from another software with a similar functionality, it can be difficult to make the transition to learn something new. This course, NUKE for After Effects Users, will show you how to use NUKE from the perspective of someone who already knows After Effects. You will see how to relate layer-based functionality of After Effects to the node-based workflow of NUKE. You will also be taught about the multi-channel workflow, how to create and use rotoscopes, keying greenscreens, understanding NUKE's 3D space, all of the functionality of text in NUKE, and how to bring a shot together using some really cool effects. Throughout this course, you'll see again and again the similarities and differences demonstrated between NUKE and After Effects. This course takes a project-based approach to learning NUKE, so by the end of the course you'll have had a real experience of what it's like to composite a shot and you'll have a beautiful scene to show for it. Software required: NUKEX.

Hi I’m Laura and in this course we’ll be learning how to use nuke from the perspective of someone who already knows after effects.

Before we get started, I’d just like to let you know that PLURALSIGHT would like to say thank you to DISSOLVE and their contributors ReelDealHD and Summit Films, for their videos that were used in this course. You can access this same video and thousands of others at DISSOLVE.COM.

Sometimes when you know a software with a profoundly different workflow from another software with a similar functionality, it can be difficult to make the transition to learn something new. This course is designed to take someone familiar with the layer based functionality of After Effects and bring them into the node based workflow of NUKE. We also learn about the multi-channel workflow, how to create and use rotoscopes, keying greenscreens, understanding nuke’s 3D space, all of the functionality of text in nuke, and how to bring a shot together using some really cool effects in nuke. Throughout this course you’ll see again and again the similarities and differences demonstrated between nuke and after effects. This course is also a project based approach to learning nuke so by the end of the course you’ll have had a real experience of what it’s like to composite a shot and you’ll have a beautiful scene to show for it. I’m really excited to share with you how easy and fun it is to work in nuke so let’s jump in and take a quick tour of the interface.
