Welcome to the Nuke Technical Workshop.

Taught by Mike Callahan, a Senior Nuke Compostier with 20-years of experience in the visual effects industry.

In this workshop, Mike will guide you through the entire workflow and process of creating an integrated multi-pass CG scene.

"We are going to cover everything from installation to final render. I am talking about Soup to Nuts - the user interface, shortcuts, merge nodes, color correction, how to use those AOVs, 2d hacks, and more. This course is completely jammed with everything I have learned in 20 years of working alongside some of the top industry experts. By the end of this course, you will have everything you are going to need to create that fantastic final image inside Nuke.

There is a lot to cover. We purposefully left some things unanswered to give you the feeling of being on an actual production shot."
