The Foundry at IBC 2008


+ There have been many exciting developments at The Foundry during the last twelve months, across all areas of the company’s product portfolio. Continuing development and support of Nuke, the Academy Award© winning compositing system, has necessitated the addition of 15 staff, plus the company’s expansion into two additional floors at its Wardour Street HQ in central London. Simultaneously, The Foundry team is continually improving and refining the existing stable of Academy Award© winning visual effects and image-processing plug-ins, and inventing new ones, in response to customer feedback and industry demand.
Ocula 3D plug-ins released & IBC conference session:
Based on stand 7.F28 at IBC 2008, The Foundry will unveil a plethora of new product releases including Nuke 5.1 and Ocula, its stereo plug-in toolset. Simon Robinson, the company’s chief scientist, will demonstrate Ocula 3d plugins as part of a presentation on 3D production and post at the IBC conference session “Putting it all Together – New Dimensions For The Big Screen” on Monday 15th September from 11.30 - 13.00hrs.
Nuke 5.1 released, plus PLE and free training:
With Nuke 5.1’s new 64-bit capabilities come the options of Furnace, Keylight, Tinder and Tinderbox 1,2 & 3 plug-ins all in 64-bit too. Other key additions to this latest update of Nuke are a PLE, support of the FBX 3D interchange format, and an extended bicubic card providing greater control over shape. All Nuke purchasers at IBC will be rewarded with a free term with FXphd (www.fxphd.com), renowned providers of online training for VFX professionals.
Foundry Plug-ins for FCP released:
The Foundry is also releasing its debut set of plug-ins for Apple Final Cut Pro. FCP 6 users will be able to purchase Keylight and Furnace, accessing Academy Award© winning motion estimation and keying technology for the very first time. In support of this launch, The Foundry is sponsoring the first European FCP SuperMeet during IBC at The Culture Park Westergasfabriek on Sunday 14th September. Free, signed copies of Ron Brinkmann’s newly updated book ‘The Art and Science of Digital Compositing’ will be available to the first 50 FCP customers at both IBC and the FCP SuperMeet.
