    Download Contents (1.5GB): 4h+ of Videos, with Nukescripts for most chapters.

    You will also receive private links to stream the content on whatever device you prefer

  • Who is this guide aimed at?

    Compositors who are familiar with Nuke and relatively complex principles and want to get started with Blinkscript to push their skills further.

  • Do I need to know C++/Python before starting?

    I recommend at least understanding the basics of coding/scripting before starting. However Blinkscript is fairly unique to itself so lots is explained from the ground up. 

    My personal experience was having a solid knowledge of Python for Nuke prior to jumping into Blinkscript, then learning that from scratch (no C++)

  • Can I use the examples in production?

    All files in the guide were made using a commercial Nuke license, so there are no issues there. I’d only caveat that they’re very bare-bones for the sake of training, so  may need a fair bit of fiddling/polish

    "Good job , and really nice videos. Easy to understand, very clear. Well done Chris !"

    "'An Artist's guide to Blinkscript' course by Chris Fryer is without a doubt an amazing course for Compositors trying to delve into the programming side of Nuke. I remember going through many Blinkscript related articles yet remaining clueless as to how it all works. Thanks to Chris I have understood not only Blinkscript programming but also the logic behind it all. Chris has a knack in teaching. He simply does not show how he codes a certain program for a specific node operation but infact explains the theory behind things before starting off, which stands out the most about the course. I did not know so much about what happens behind the hood with blackpoint or gamma operation, Chris ensured to explain the concepts well. I look forward to more such ‘rich in material’ courses."
