The Foundry and Luxology announced that the two companies will be merging as of today. This will bring together two of the brightest new software companies in the VFX world and no doubt some amazing new developments will be sure to follow.
Set to be the biggest NUKE release to date, NUKE 7.0 comes with a host of polished and perfected tools to streamline your day-to-day workflow, as well as new additions to complement it’s highly acclaimed feature set.
Join Motion Media, along with Deke from The Foundry, and get a hands on view of what deep compositing is, how it works in Nuke, and how you might be able to use it.. Deep Compositing allows artists to work with ‘deep images’ containing multiple opacity or colour samples per pixel. This allows rendering of CGI elements without predetermined holdout mattes, avoiding the need for re-renders when content changes.
Motion Media is offering a whopping 40% off all node-locked MARI purchases for one day only – August 2nd-3rd 9am to 9am. You don’t want to miss this sweet pre-Siggraph sale.
This video has been floating around online for a couple years now, but I came across it again today and was floored, again. It’s a very cool, highly cinematic video that was paid for by Philips ( the electronics company) for promotional purposes. Also, I did some looking around and found a “making of” video which is equally as interesting.
The Foundry is happy to announce that HIERO 1.0v3 is now available to download, including a number of important fixes and enhancements.
The Foundry releases a new version of Hiero. The Foundry’s new shot management, conform and review timeline for VFX becomes more streamlined with new feature additions, efficiency updates and plenty of bug fixes.
Not much to say about this except that it is amazing and I can’t imagine how much time it took to prepare, animate and shoot this video. Well done and very unique.
This Nuke Upgrade is free to costumers on current maintenance and includes Improved Photoshop Layered PSD Reading, OpenColor IO, a new UDIM functionality and extended RenderMan integration.
Universal Pictures has released a new trailer and a 5 Minute Extended Preview for the upcoming movie “Snow White and the Huntsman” starring Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Eddie Izzard, Bob Hoskins, and Toby Jones.
