About the author

BRADFORD SCHMIDT AND BRANDON THOMPSON are founding members of GoPro’s media department. Bradford first met GoPro founder Nicholas Woodman in 2002, on a wooden chicken ferry while on a surf trip in Sumatra. The two bonded through their love of surfing, travel, and photography. Over the next seven years, Bradford helped Nick develop what would become GoPro, testing prototype mounts and cameras and filming footage for sales, marketing, and trade shows. In 2009, Bradford moved to Half Moon Bay, California, to create GoPro’s media department and start its YouTube channel. Soon after, Brandon joined him as the second member of the media department. Since then, the two have worked together to tell countless GoPro stories; in the process, helping GoPro become the content-driven brand it is today.

For many visual effects artists who are just starting out or are moving from After Effects, Shake, Fusion, or another compositing tool, they are learning that Nuke is quickly becoming the feature film compositing industry standard. While there are several online turorials and courses available, there is currently no book on the market for those who need to know all the ins and outs of the software. Until now.

Nuke 101 covers everything readers need to know to begin using the compositor for their projects. It includes step-by-step lessons on basic and advanced compositing, color correction, Roto Paint, keying, tracking, as well as more advanced topics such as using CGI and the 3D engine.

The projects used throughout the book are based on real-world examples of professional production work and offer hard-worn advice from the pros who work in the trenches on high-end compositing work. After reading the techniques and following along in the projects, readers will have a solid foundation for working in Nuke and be able to join the ranks of its many fans and adopters.

The colorist is responsible for the critical final stage of refinement of the film and broadcast image. Using all of the controls modern color correction software provides, colorists refine the mood, create style, add polish to scenes, and breathe life into the visuals. The craft of color correction can take considerable trial and error to learn, while the art of color grading takes years to perfect. Alexis Van Hurkman draws on his wealth of industry experience to provide a thoroughly updated edition of what has become the standard guide to color correction. Using a friendly, clear teaching style and a slew of real-world examples and anecdotes, Alexis demonstrates how to achieve professional results for any project, using any number of dedicated grading applications, or even an editing program’s built-in color correction tools.
