D2 Software Ships Nuke TM v4.5 Compositor with New Image-Based Keyer, Updated UI
- D2 Software, Inc. a subsidiary of Digital Domain, Inc., is now shipping v4.5 of Nuke, the high-end compositing system built by artists, for artists. Already offering the industry’s mostrobust 3D workspace with .obj support and 3D camera projection, Nuke now incorporates a brand new image-based keyer and tools for additional creative flexibility when working in 3D. With a focus on making Nuke accessible to the broadest range of users, the newest release also introduces a new UI mode, support for Mac OSX and broader support for Open FX, and a new pricing structure. Nuke artists will find a brand new image-based keyer (IBK) in v4.5, which provides a unique and flexible method for pulling high-quality keys. In traditional keyers, algorithms are based on the weighted relationship between the color channels involved in creating a key, locking them together so that as artists adjust one color channel, another color channel is proportionally adjusted.
