Foundry - Nuke to NukeX - Upgrade

Foundry - Nuke to NukeX - Upgrade


Upgrade from Nuke to NukeX. This product can not be purchased in our online store, as the price for the upgrade is calculated based on the renewal date of your current maintenance contract. Please contact us to get a quote.

With NukeX, you get the powerful compositing toolset, the collaborative workflows, and the avenues for customization and pipeline integration of the Nuke core, together with an advanced toolset of 2D and 3D functionality right at your fingertips, reducing the need to round-trip to other packages.

NukeX takes care of the heavy lifting so you can focus on being creative. With less need to pass control back to the 3D team, you can more easily maintain your creative intent, and get the job finished faster.

  • Ultimate compositing toolkit 
    NukeX includes all of Nuke’s industry-leading node-based tools, including a true 3D system, deep compositing tools and support for stereoscopic workflows, so you can tackle any project.

  • Less round-tripping with 3D packages
    NukeX’s 3D compositing system includes a 3D Camera Tracker, Point Cloud generator, Model Builder, and Lens Distortion tool, all designed to seamlessly integrate into your compositing workflow.
  • Cross-team collaboration
    With the same collaborative workflows as Nuke—including groups, backdrop nodes, sticky notes and precomps—NukeX lets you easily communicate, share and work together with others.

  • Advanced tools for film-grade results
    Developed by Foundry's award-winning research team, NukeX offers advanced vector-based workflows for shot clean-up, GPU-accelerated retiming, realistic motion blur, warping, and more.

  • Share the workload
    Share out important day-to-day compositing tasks with a wider team of artists with two Nuke Assist licences that provide core nodes for performing paint, roto, shot clean-up and rig removal.

  • Tailor it to your taste
    Like Nuke, NukeX lets you create your own toolkit of common setups and presets to apply across multiple shots or share with other Nuke artists, or write custom tools with the Python API.
