The Foundry MODO, MARI and NUKE Project for Beginners

An Introduction to NUKE, MODO, and MARI

Creative Specialist Martin Mayer gives an introductory course to those just getting started with MODO, MARI, and NUKE. Learn how to generate a digital nature scene FROM SCRATCH with techniques that are useful for both visual effects artists and advertising image production.

I learned NUKE, MODO, and MARI last summer and they are all excellent tools. I really enjoy working with them. I especially like using NUKE because it’s a lot of fun to use and very powerful! After I got over the hump of using a node-based tool, as opposed to the time line-based tool that I had been so used to, it was a breeze.
