"NUKE has become an integral part to our workflow at The Mill and has been welcomed with open arms by all departments. Having the site license means that everyone can have a piece of the pie, and our imagination isn’t limited by numbers. The ease of use, speed, and the technical prowess of the kit has ignited a new creative energy amongst our artists. Each week we’re discovering new ways to achieve things using NUKE, and the recent updates have made the future of NUKE even more exciting for us."
Roy Trosh, Group Technical Director, The Mill
"The compositing tasks on 'Deliver Hope' were easily as complex as those on many high-end VFX intensive feature films. Shots included well over 30 separate layers including portions of live action, matte paintings, 2D and 3D CGI. The method team mainly ran the compositing through The Foundry's NUKE package because of its powerful 3D functionality. The process helped spread the heavy workload much more evenly between the 2D and 3D teams."
Dan Glass, VFX Supervisor, Method Studios
"At Framestore, speed and flexibility in VFX post is paramount. NUKE is simply incredibly fast and interactive, even in complex comps with several hundred nodes. The interactivity the artist gets from NUKE out of the box is impressive, and it even allows the supervisor to sit down with the artist to do an 'interactive' session if needed. The flexibility NUKE brings to the table might even be a more powerful key point - not only for the artist, but also for the pipeline team. The ability to have Maya, Houdini and NUKE talk the same scripting language is a huge benefit for the pipeline and tool development."
