Nuke was a perfect choice for Dinotrux: by utilizing our Gizmo system, we’re able to actually tweak the lighting on any time of day—it allows us to generate many different looks inside of Nuke and it really saves everybody time because we don’t have to re-render things over and over again.

With Dinotrux, they got to work on every small boy’s dream—an animated series starring characters that are half dinosaur, half truck. Tasked with hitting the DreamWorks quality standards within a TV schedule, they turned to Foundry’s Mari and Nuke to help them achieve their goals.
