Over at NAB, Foundry was giving the first public previews of Nuke 11.0 and its cloud based post production service Elara.


Elara is Foundry’s service for post-production in the cloud that centralises infrastructure, creative tools and pipeline. It lets studios and teams access the whole project via their web browser, including Foundry and third-party applications, integrated cloud rendering, scalable storage and compute. Elara has been developed to let global teams set up a virtual studio with central pipeline, storage and resources in a few clicks, without high upfront investment or management complexity. 


Foundry also showed off Nuke 11.0, the next release of its compositor that is in open beta starting this month.


New for Nuke 11.0 will be features including Live Groups, Lens Distortion improvements, and Timeline Disk Caching, as well as an update to the latest industry standards via the VFX Reference Platform 2017. 


There were updates too for Nuke’s CARA VR plug in with new support for depth data, drawn from VR camera rigs like Nokia OZO. By opening up this new depth information, users can now design more immersive 360 experiences, using the depth-based compositing toolset in Nuke.
