Josh Parks runs through creating a particle confetti effect using Nuke.
One of the best things about working with compositors like Nuke and Fusion is the fact that they have built-in particle systems that work in a unified 3D space. Want to see how that benefits workflow? Have a look at this quick tutorial from Josh Parks who shows how to set up an explosive confetti effect in Nuke.
If you are comparing workflow to After Effects and Trapcode Particular, the system will end up being very similar, but with much more flexibility in Nuke. Parks makes interesting tutorials with particles. Have a look at this tutorial that shows how to create mograph-like setups for abstract images using Nuke.
