GridIron Software has begun shipping Nucleo Pro 2, an upgrade to the productivity enhancement tool that optimizes the workflow for visual effects artists using Adobe After Effects.
With workflow enhancements like spec preview, spec render, commit to disk and background render, Nucleo Pro allows users to harness the full power of their multiprocessor or multicore computers.
Nucleo Pro 2 lets motion graphics artists manage After Effects and 3-D renders from one convenient spot by dragging projects for any of the supported applications into the background render queue. Support is available for most popular 3-D rendering applications including: Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Maya, Maxon Cinema 4D, Newtek LightWave, Softimage XSI and Apple Shake.
Additional support for After Effects proxying is also available. Nucleo Pro 2's pre-composition proxy feature makes proxying simple by allowing the addition of a proxy with a single keystroke.
