Welcome to the Nuke 11.1 Alpha.

Hello, Nuke users! We're excited to share the first Alpha versions of our upcoming Nuke 11.1v1 release for you to try out and provide feedback on. As these builds are Alphas, we strongly recommend and advise you not to use it in a production environment.

Source clip property panels [Property Panels]

In Nuke Studio projects, source clip properties are now accessible through a Read node style panel displayed in the Properties tab. This consolidates existing options into a single location, providing faster access and greater control, as well as introducing a more consistent UI and workflow between Nuke and Nuke Studio. 

Existing options have been improved and a number of new options have been added. 

  • file - Replaces the Media File option in the Media tab and now has Expression support. This, for example, allows environment variables to be used in file paths.
  • localization policy - Easy access to the localization policy for each source clip.
  • original range - Adjust the source clip frame range. Previously only accessible through ‘Open In > Timeline Viewʼ. 
  • missing frames - Set how file read errors should be handled. Error, black, checkerboard or nearest frame. 
  • colorspace - Replaces the Colour Space option in the Media tab and has improved error handling for missing colour spaces.
  • OCIO - Provides OCIO context support for source clips.
  • Format specific - Easy access to format specific options. For example, QuickTime decoder, ycbcr matrix and source range (video or full).

Greater control over the source clip properties in Nuke Studio also provides greater control over generated .nk scripts when using the Create Comp workflow.

In addition to this all source clip properties will be accessible through the Python API, improving scripting capabilities and therefore the ability to integrate Nuke Studio into existing pipelines.
