About This User Guide

This guide provides you with information on specific workflows in Nuke or NukeX. You can dip in and out of this section depending on what you’re interested in.

Throughout the User Guide, we assume you have a basic knowledge of computer graphics and digital compositing theory, as well as proficiency with the operating system for which Nuke is installed.
