Foundry: Sneak peeks of Elara and Nuke 11 at NAB 2017
Foundry will unveil the first public previews of Nuke 11 and Elara, a new service for post-production in the cloud, at this year's NAB. A livestreamed event (Monday, April 24, 2017) will give Foundry fans the full scoop, along with the latest news on their ongoing partnership with Lytro Cinema. In open beta starting April 2017, Nuke 11 will be the next major release of the popular compositor. Focusing on collaboration and performance, Nuke 11 introduces Live Groups, Lens Distortion improvements, and Timeline Disk Caching, as well as a huge update to the latest industry standards via the VFX Reference Platform 2017. Elara will be a cloud-based service for post-production that centralises infrastructure, creative tools and pipeline. Now studios can access everything they need via their web browser, including Foundry and third-party applications, integrated cloud rendering, scalable storage and compute. At NAB 2017, Foundry will also show off new support for depth data in Cara VR, drawn from VR camera rigs like Nokia OZO. By opening up this new depth information, users can now design more immersive 360 experiences. [source]
