Exporting from Nuke Studio

This section deals primarily with shot management and export functionality when you're farming out shots or sequences to other artists. It also deals with the presets, which dictate how Create Comp passes data between the Timeline environment and Compositing environment.

The export suite can transcode, export clip selections from a timeline or bin, write out EDLs and XMLs, or bake out an entire timeline as a single clip in your required delivery format. The Export presets are also used to manage how Create Comp sends clips back and forth between Nuke Studio's Timeline environment and Compositing environment using Local and Project Presets.

Nuke Studio ships with several context-sensitive and ad hoc export options:

Exporting Sequences and Shots - the process of preparing a sequence or individual shots for export and paving the way for VFX work to come back into Nuke Studio.

Transcoding - converts one file format to another. You can transcode sequences, timeline selections, and clips from the bin view.

Ad Hoc Exports - an umbrella covering exports that you might not perform on a per project basis, such as EDL or XML exports.

Create Comp - edit or create the presets used during Create Comp, passing source clips or shots to the Compositing environment and sending rendered Write nodes from the Node Graph back to the Timeline environment.

With the addition of Python bindings to perform the same functions, this infrastructure provides a massive amount of flexibility, whether your pipeline is GUI or command line orientated.

Note:  Nuke Studio is non-destructive and can slot into your pipeline if you setup your shot template to mirror the existing file structure.
