In this course, you'll learn useful python techniques for Nuke that you can use in your own code. Prof Hugo Léveillé will show you how you can use the regular expressions module, which is a module that a lot of people don’t use because of its somewhat complicated syntax. You'll also see how to build a shot time calculator inside Nuke using the threading module as well as some other techniques along the way.

Hugo Léveillé is currently head of compositing at Mels studios in Montreal. With over 10 years of VFX experiences, he also shares his work time by creating and integrating pipeline tools for Nuke.
