2nd Edition

Though I took great care in writing the book and several different editors went over the book several times, some type errors and other problems did end up in the final version of the book even if it is the 2nd edition.

The remarkable thing about things made out of atoms is that it is really expensive to edit them after they are published (unlike this website). I believe I have managed to write all the errors up below. If you run into something that isn’t written below, please contact myself or Peachpit Press.

Chapter 2
Page 48 Point 5 Please hover the Viewer, not the DAG.
Chapter 3
Page 82 Point 29 The channel set is called Rfl, not Ref as written in the book. All mentions of Ref should be changed to Rfl.

Nuke 9

I’m currently working on a list of notes relating to Nuke 9. The interface has been changed a little, most of all, the Viewer. See the interface changes here.
Also, see other changes below.

Page Location Change / Addition Comment
Chapter 1
Page 4 The menu bar The menu called Layout was renamed to Workspace. All references to the word Layout in the book should be changed to Workspace.
Page 5 Point 6 From the Workspace menu, choose Save Workspace… In the panel that opens give the workspace a name. I chose Favorite. Click OK, then on the next panel click OK as well.
Chapter 2
Page 29 Point 7 Make sure the mouse is over the DAG when pressing Q. In Nuke 9 pressing Q while hovering the mouse pointer in the viewer turns off overlays.
Chapter 4
Page 107 Point 1 This menu item was renamed to Insert Comp Nodes.
Page 123 Point 20 From the newly created pane’s Content menu’s Window sub-menu, choose Pixel Analyzer.
