The Foundry NUKE 11 / NUKEX 11 is the first choice for compositing and visual effects in film and VFX. NUKE was developed as an in-house tool by Digital Domain, and in a short period of time this software has managed to convince all the major production houses of its outstanding capabilities. The very rapid development of new tools in NUKE helps professional productions to always stay on time and to increase working quickly and effectively. 

The Foundry NUKE itself is available in two versions. The large NUKEX version offers all the powerful tools of the NUKE standard suite additionally including a 3D camera tracker, a planar tracker, a 3D particle system, Denoising, a point cloud generation, as well as a full Pixar RenderMan Pro Server support.


Of course, we always work on the latest version of NUKE 11 if you wish. Thus you get a quick introduction to the new features.
