WETA DIGITAL shares BEHIND THE SCENES making of “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” in Nuke

Ever wonder first off, who worked on Rise of the Planet of the Apes? Weta Digital.  Then, did you ever wonder what programs they relied on? The Foundry’s Nuke. Did you know that Andy Serkis played Caesar, the same actor who played Gollum in Lord of the Rings? (I know you probably did…)  Lastly, did you ever wonder how on earth they pulled it off and what was CG and what was real?

“Deep Compositing was introduced in NUKEX 6.3. Here Robin Hollander takes us through Weta Digital’s ground breaking use of the technology on Rise of the Planet of the Apes. If you’re a bit confused about the benefits of Deep Compositing, this video shows them very clearly. It will leave you itching to get cracking with it on your next project!”
