Over the past couple of weeks I've been using NukeX, which is just Nuke6 with some fancy additions like lens distortion tools, 3D camera tracking, and the new rotopaint additions. They are all pretty powerful! I've also started using the integrated stereoscopic system, which makes it pretty simple to create impressive 3D comps! It's most likely that I won't be using Nuke 6 on the next show, it's just too soon and all of our productions are currently underway with other versions.

NukeX will work wonderfully with smaller studios and independent operators, as the combination of both lens distortion tools and integrated camera tracker will really help a compositor output more. Like I mentioned before, the realm of 2D and 3D is slowly blurring, and the responsibilities of a compositor have been increasing.

I posted an article over on VFXWages about foreign competition last week, I'm eager to hear your throughts. I've tried to make it relevant to all foreigners, so it should be applicable whether you reside in the EU, USA, AU, or Asia.

I'm nearing 500 readers for the blog, and I thank you all for your patronage! I'll keep writing and hope that you keep reading. I'm always open for topics and suggestions on what you'd like to hear about the vfx industry, so drop me a line in the comments below!

Of course we will keep reading! I'm like a little child each time your RSS-feed shines up and indicates a new post. =)

Loved the "tip of the week" ones! Overall all your posts are inspiring and interesting. But you haven't commented on the Oscars yet? =)

Keep up the good work! You're one of my heroes! =)
