Creating Effects

Several nodes in Nuke let you create various effects on your input images. In this chapter, we describe three of these nodes: LightWrap, Glint, and Text.

Quick Start

Here's a quick overview of the workflow:

1.   To adjust the soft edges and light spills that occur in the border between your foreground and background, you can use the LightWrap node (Draw > LightWrap). For more information, see Background Reflections on Foreground Elements.
2.   With the Glint node you can add star-shaped glints on your image. See Creating Star Filter Effects on Image Highlights.
3.   Using the Text node, you can add text elements, such as credits, to your footage. For more information, see Creating Text Overlays.
