Nuke Studio is a backbone for us because it communicates with every part of the studio.

Not a VFX artist?

If you need to review, edit, conform, or manage the shots your team are creating (but aren’t creating VFX yourself) you should take a look at our multi-shot management tool, Hiero.
Hiero includes the same multi-track editorial timeline and collaborative management tools as Nuke Studio - even providing the ability to create and render comp scripts - just without the NukeX.
