The Foundry has made the latest beta of its flagship compositing software NUKE (version 9) available to current NUKE and NUKEX customers holding valid maintenance. NUKEX customers will also have access to the NUKEX and NUKE STUDIO beta releases.

NUKE STUDIO is The Foundry's newest integrated visual effects, conforming and editing toolset designed to work in client and supervisor sessions - it relies on the company's experience in developing both NUKE of course, and HIERO.

You can find out more about NUKE STUDIO in our earlier exclusive first look, but keep an eye on fxguide for a round-up of how effects artists are already using the product.
