SPEED IMPROVEMENTS
NUKE 7.0 introduces  RAM cache, a sought after feature that will give users real- time playback.  Also debuting in this major release are a variety of GPU accelerated nodes for NUKEX including  MotionBlur, Kronos, Denoise, VectorGenerator,  Convolve and ZDefocus. This is a fundamental change
that will allow users to utilise the power of their GPUs to speed up interactive image processing times. When the GPU is available NUKEX will now take full advantage of that power. If however it’s unavailable, the software simply reverts back to the CPU without any need to adjust settings.

Jon Wadelton, NUKE Product Manager at The Foundry comments:
“7.0 is literally our biggest ever update to NUKE and one that’s going to please a lot of industry people. Core tools have been improved, brand new functionality has been added and NUKE is now faster than ever. We’ve taken all the things that people love about NUKE and supercharged them. ”

Robert Nederhorst, VFX Supervisor, Svengali Visual Effects :
“The NUKE team has put a lot of soul into this release. It's chocked so full of goodness that you want to have it sold at a donut shop. With full-on RAM caching, Alembic support, a completely revamped tracking system, and a whole new modeling toolset you'd figure that the team would be tired. Not true.

They have added so much more on top of this, while striving to reduce RAM issues, crashing, and much more. I think someone is putting some special sauce in the water there in London.”

BLURRING THE LINE BETWEEN 2D AND 3D
NUKE 7.0 also brings with it a number of options that allow artists to do more within NUKE. Users are now able to perform lighting tasks in a comp using the ReLight node and even model using NUKEX’s new ModelBuilder.  Both of these additions reduce the need for artists to jump in and out of other programs or hand work off to other departments.

STREAMLINED COMPOSITING

The roto tools in NUKE have also been entirely redefined to enhance performance and improve stereo support, giving artists more control than ever before. Support for new camera raw formats has been added including Alexa ARRIRAW and the latest R3D SDK. NUKE 7.0 includes Primatte 5 and a brand new 2D tracker with big updates to the workflow and speed. The SplineWarp node and Dope Sheet have also benefited from major improvements.

NUKE AND NUKEX DEFINED
NUKEX features the core NUKE toolset complimented with a range of exclusive cutting edge tools. Additional NUKEX features include GPU accelerated nodes, 3D camera tracker, modelling and point cloud generation as well as the FURNACECORE plug-in set.
