NOTE: Yes we know version 4.6 is out, however we got our hands on the
RETAIL (this is not the demo) version of 4.5 and decided to share it
with you anyways, this software is just too good. This is the software
used to do the CG in some of the biggest blockbusters of hollywood.

Power up your keying
Nuke's new image based keyer (IBK) gives artists the ability to
manipulate color channels in a completely new way; working on each
color channel individually. Now artists have the power to truly

and TCL-based node labeling make navigating large scripts easier than
Fulfill your need for speed
Even when processing high resolution footage on modest hardware with
32-bit floating point precision, NUKE's multi-threaded, scan-line based
computation gives rapid feedback. And when it's time for the final
render, NUKE is, bar none, the fastest in its class.
Satisfy your inner nerd
NUKE supports an extremely open architecture. Both its scripts and user
interface are based on the TCL scripting language, which makes it
possible to customize NUKE in innumerable ways. If you want to go even
deeper, NUKE offers a full-fledged software developers kit (SDK) for
creating your own C++-based plugins.
Use your favorite plugins
All of The Foundry's OpenFX (OFX) plugins are fully compatible with
NUKE. Currently, the Keylight keyer, the Tinder collection (which
includes lens flares, warpers, and lens blurs), and the Furnace
collection (which includes motion vector retiming, wire removal, clean
plate creation, grain, and texture tools) are available in the OFX
format, with more collections added all the time.
