The Foundry has announced Nuke 10, the next update to its Nuke product range, adding a new raytracing renderer, improving the performance of the RotoPaint node, and extending GPU support.

In addition, users of NukeX, the extended edition of the base Nuke compositing software, will get a new Smart Paint toolset designed to simplify common tasks like plate clean-up and beauty work.

Users of Nuke Studio, The Foundry’s new VFX, editorial and finishing system, will get Smart Paint plus a new chroma keyer, improved audio tools, and a range of new timeline-based effects.

The Nuke 10 product range will enter beta on 14 January 2016 for customers with valid maintenance contracts. The Foundry hasn’t announced a date for the official release yet.
