Stereoscopic imagery plug-in for NUKE

OCULA is a unique collection of 16 workflow plug-in tools for NUKE designed to tackle common problems with stereoscopic imagery. Helping to take the headache out of stereo post-production, OCULA can be relied upon to boost productivity and ultimately deliver a more rewarding 3D viewing experience.


  • Fix common stereoscopic problems - with tools to correct colour and focus, automatically correct alignment, retime stereo views and assist stereo VFX.
  • Create sharp and accurate images - with image building tools that match original footage without depth tearing and tools to calculate clean and stable stereo disparity without depth roll-off.
  • Enjoy fine-level, high quality, workflow enhanced control - thanks to pixel-level image matching tools that don’t introduce artefacts, easy manual refinement and fast, simple review corrections that reduce iterations. 
  • Achieve fast shot turnaround - with built-in automation that allows corrections to be scripted for offline work and advanced GPU acceleration that speeds up interactive processing with the same results on both the CPU and GPU.
"OCULA 4 looks brilliant! Why didn't it exist back in 2012 during The Great Gatsby? If only it came with a time machine, so I could rescue my team from super awkward stereo issues we faced in that long hot summer. We could have sat by the pool being showered in glitter rather than tweaking disparity maps late into the evening. "Can't repeat the past?" he cried incredulously. "Why of course you can!"."
Alex Fry, Comp Lead on The Great Gatsby
"I love the new disparity map algorithm in OCULA 3.0. We did tests using the depth map generated by OCULA to create digi-doubles of real live action in a CG snowstorm to allow the FX team to blow snow particles around the people to get the correct holdout mattes in z-depth. We created geo from footage without building animated digital doubles."
Mark van den Bergen, Senior Compositor - Stereo, Dr D Studios
"NUKE is a fantastic tool and crucial to our workflow at The Mill. It has a stellar set of features and in conjunction with OCULA, made working on our recent stereoscopic projects vastly more efficient, allowing us to focus on making the visuals shine, and making our clients happy."
Westley Sarokin, Joint Head of 2D, The Mill
"Right off the bat the results we're getting from OCULA 3.0 are truly amazing. This is a major step up from OCULA 2.2."
Jose Fernandez de Castro Heller, Senior Compositor, MPC Vancouver
