2. Touring the Interface with a Basic Composite

Digital compositing is about taking several widely different sources and combining them into one seamless whole. As you will learn in this chapter, Nuke gives you the right toolset to do just that. It helps you create a successful composite, which may involve you using numerous tools—such as keying, color correction, matte extraction, 2D or 3D tracking, and other custom tools—in combination and in a specific order. The final image will rely on your, the artist’s, talent; however, having an easy-to-access toolset will drive your vision instead of slowing it down.
