An Introduction to NUKE, MODO, and MARI
Creative Specialist Martin Mayer gives an introductory course to those just getting started with MODO, MARI, and NUKE. Learn how to generate a digital nature scene FROM SCRATCH with techniques that are useful for both visual effects artists and advertising image production.
I learned NUKE, MODO, and MARI last summer and they are all excellent tools. I really enjoy working with them. I especially like using NUKE because it’s a lot of fun to use and very powerful! After I got over the hump of using a node-based tool, as opposed to the time line-based tool that I had been so used to, it was a breeze.
Award-winning, state-of-the-art NUKE is considered to be “The World’s Most Powerful Node Based Compositor”. It was designed to streamline day-to-day workflow and ensure the highest quality results fast.
3D modeling, animation, sculpting, effects and rendering in a powerful integrated package. An end-to-end solution delivering raw horsepower, refined technology, and robust workflows, MODO is the creative option of choice for artists and designers around the world – from home-based hobbyists to Hollywood studios.
The cutting-edge 3D paint tool gives artists a fluid and flexible way to paint directly onto 3D models – meaning more time spent painting and less time managing technical issues. Supported by the world’s most advanced layering system, MARI is capable of handling high-resolution textures and millions of polygons without ever compromising on speed or efficiency.
