The Foundry Launches NUKE 7.0

Leading visual effects software developer, The Foundry has launched NUKE 7.0, a revolutionary version of its industry leading compositor.
The highly anticipated release of NUKE 7.0 is packed with a wide range of new features and substantial improvements. The updated version is available to purchase now. Based on feedback from NUKE’s wide user base, this version of NUKE is faster and more user-optimised than ever before.
As well as some very exciting new additions, the focus of this release has been to really increase performance as well as adding support for Alembic and OpenEXR 2.0 Deep Data.
NUKE 7.0 introduces RAM cache, a sought after feature that will give users realtime 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 commented: "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."
