Virtual reality plug-in toolset for NUKE

CARA VR™—the much-anticipated new plug-in toolset for the NUKE® family of compositing, editorial and finishing products—helps you to create incredible live-action virtual reality content.

With a specialised toolset that includes headset review, CARA VR dramatically speeds up the challenging and often tedious process of stitching and compositing 360° video footage, so you have more time to focus on creating high-quality immersive experiences.


  • Seamless stitching of mono or stereo VR content - With an advanced stitching toolset based on stereo disparity technology from OCULA®, CARA VR offers presets for many popular camera rigs and is easily configured for custom rigs.
  • Automatic stitch clean-up and correction - CARA VR automatically corrects for exposure and white balance differences between cameras, and stabilizes moving camera shots for a more comfortable viewing experience.
  • Powerful streamlined VR compositing workflows - CARA VR makes it easy for artists to use NUKE’s full suite of compositing tools on 360° footage for clean-up, set extensions, 3D element insertion and more.
  • Headset review inside NUKE - With CARA VR’s support for popular VR headsets, you can review directly from NUKE’s viewer or NUKE STUDIO’s timeline, eliminating the need to export to a separate application.

CARA VR for NUKE is very exciting, because they’ve taken something very complex and reduced it to something very, very simple. Stereoscopic stitching is a very complicated process, however it’s been greatly simplified by the latest tools from CARA.
