Nuke 13.1 sees the addition of new node graph user experience features, helping to accelerate artists and their workflows. The backdrop node can now be resized from all four corners, making it easier to keep your scripts organized by allowing you to easily adjust backdrops behind groups of nodes. We've also added the ability to shake nodes to disconnect them. This gestural control makes it quick and easy to move sections of script around in the node graph, so artists can disconnect and reconnect with ease.
We’ve extended the Hydra support in Nuke’s 3D viewport to work on macOS, enabling Mac users to utilize hdStorm as the new viewport renderer. This ensures that, on all operating systems, Nuke has a 3D viewer consistent with other applications in your pipeline, as well as providing a 3D viewport that closely represents the output from the Scanline Render.
Our native file format support will now include Blackmagic RAW which can ingest directly into Nuke and Nuke Studio. The Blackmagic RAW file format allows users to work directly with the RAW data inside of Nuke. Sensor data is retained within the file, so users can non-destructively modify settings such as ISO, white balance, and exposure as RAW data and have greater control of the image in post while maintaining image quality. These changes can be saved as separate sidecar files, so you can customize the look of your images and share these changes without modifying the original image data.
OCIOv2 is coming to Nuke 13.1. With it comes consistency of color processing between CPU and GPU, ensuring a consistent viewing experience between Nuke and Nuke Studio so artists can move seamlessly between Nuke and the timeline and be confident of accurate color. It also improves color management inside of Nuke. Studios can continue to use OCIOv1 configurations in their pipeline.
We’ve improved metadata in the timeline with the aim of making it accessible and consistent throughout the pipeline. Timeline metadata representation now matches Nuke, meaning pipeline code that operates on metadata can be used in both the timeline and Node Graph. You will also be able to use metadata more efficiently in Text and Burnins, as well as use per frame metadata in all Soft Effects. All the improvements make creating, modifying and managing metadata in the timeline easier, so you can be confident that you always have access to all the data you need.
Nuke 13.1 includes several library and SDK upgrades including USD updated to 21.05 allowing for consistent work across different applications. RED has been updated to 8.0.4, AJA SDK updated to 16.0.1 BMD DeckLink SDK updated to 12.0, and ACES has been updated to 1.2.
