Mads Hagbarth Damsbo - Visual Effects & Pipeline Technical Director at Nordisk Film Shortcut

Once you start to expand upon it, like creating custom pipeline tools directly inside of Nuke Studio, it becomes evident that there is no alternative to it.

Patricia Terol Tolsa - MPC

It would be quite hard to imagine our studio nowadays without Nuke Studio. It’s super integrated, especially on the advertising side, so it’s used throughout the entire process from the start of the job to the end of it.

Rob Bannister - VFX Supervisor

It’s the one ring to rule them all. I can bring in an edit, and I can pass out data to other team members, and keep it all together inside of nuke studio. Even as a one man show I can bring in a commercial or an edit and generate comps that I can jump in and basically take on a whole project myself.

Toya Drechsler - MPC

I love how close my software is to the one with my artists. I love that I can jump from Nuke Studio in to Nuke at any given moment, give feedback, write up scripts, jump back into Nuke Studio. I don't think any other software could do that for me currently.
