How to Build a Dehaze Tool in Nuke

Mads Hagbarth Damsbo shows how to make a lightroom Dehaze tool in Nuke.

Adobe Lightroom has a handy Dehaze tool that can add or remove atmospheric haze from a photograph. I often wished that there were similar features in other applications. If you work with Nuke, check out this new tutorial from VFX Supervisor, Compositor & Technical Director Mads Hagbarth Lund. The tutorial shows how you can build a Dehaze tool right in Nuke with a few nodes.

The tutorial covers creating a tool that has similar functionality to the one found in Lightroom and Photoshop, using the same principles. Mads also includes how you can improve the result by using one of the new nodes added in Nuke 12. Mads creates a few tools for Nuke, including this one that creates a luxurious laser spaghetti look.
