Event Details

 Nuke Intensive Workshop

Maybe you have done some video tutorials or taken an online workshop or two to learn Nuke on your own but you still find Nuke’s behavior mystifying in many situations. Perhaps you are unsure how to combine multiple keys for a bluescreen shot or can’t make sense of the shaders in Nuke’s 3D world. Or maybe you have just decided to learn Nuke and are looking for the ideal jump start. This workshop is made for you.

Join Steve Wright, a 20 year veteran of vfx compositing and master trainer for an utterly unique two day Nuke workshop specifically designed to give you the core knowledge of Nuke you need so that you can build on it yourself. These are the insights and understandings that most artists don’t get until they have worked with Nuke for years. Without a firm grounding in the these key concepts it becomes very difficult to add to your Nuke knowledge on your own.


About Steve Wright

Steve Wright is a 20 year veteran of visual effects compositing with over 70 feature film credits and since 2005 has been a master trainer conducting staff training on vfx compositing for over 25 visual effects studios around the world. He has trained over 600 artists in Nuke which has given him a unique understanding of exactly what it is that gives newcomers the most trouble. He is renowned for his teaching skills, clarity of presentation, and depth of knowledge. He has also published two books on compositing (links below), has multiple webinars, on-line tutorials, and workshops, and has produced multiple Nuke tutorial videos for The Foundry on their website.


What you get

Beyond two exciting days of deep insight into Nuke’s operation you will get project media and return home with multiple Nuke scripts that you created in class as well as prepared Nuke scripts that demonstrate specific key workflow situations. To ensure maximum quality of training the class size is strictly limited to 10 seats. Sign up now so you don’t miss out.

Who should attend

Hardware and Software

Bring your own laptop with Nuke installed and licensed to the class. If you don’t have Nuke then install it a few days before the class and sign up for the 15 day free trial license. If you have already used your 15 day free trial license then tech support at RFX will fix you up with a temporary license on site.
