boujou and nuke

so what i’ve been doing this weekend is playing or learning boujou and nuke.

let’s talk about boujou first since I leaned it first. I really like the program, just now easy and simple the interface is, and it’s really easy to use as well. and it usually does a good job of tracking the camera and what not, but then again I mean it’s an algorithm going through and doing it, it’s not smart, not by a long long shot, so it does require some clean up form time to time,and it screws up royally at times as well. anyway so i think it’s a very valuable software and i will definitely keep it around and will dug deeper into it when needed but i feel i can handle simple camera tracking and matchmoving shots.

okay now onto nuke we go, now everyone knows nuke the incredible and amazing compositing software that everyone uses on all the big movies. and i have to say, it is an awesome piece of software, the interface is great, the nodes are really powerful and useful, even though it’s not that user friendly to use, but i feel it’s still easy to get a grasp on. for me coming from fusion which is another node based compositing software it feels pretty similar yet still very very different, i personally like nuke better, i just find it more powerful even though i do sometimes miss the fusion interface, and nuke i think is somewhat slow, maybe it’s just me, but anyway, i think i’ll be moving my compositing pipeline over to nuke, but i will keep fusion for smaller and less intensive stuff. outpu.0022

just a frame from the nuke compositing DVD from gnomon workshop which i love, just learning the basics for now, still got a long long long long way to go XD
