- LOS ANGELES
Foundry, a developer of creative software for the media, entertainment and digital design industries, has joined the Netflix Post Technology Alliance (PTA) with Nuke, its award-winning node-based compositor, as part of the “VFX” technology category.
The Netflix PTA program helps companies that build and market products used in the production and delivery of Netflix Original productions. This program is designed specifically for technology partners, including software and hardware developers of tools which are used in the postproduction and delivery of Netflix Original productions.
Products in this program are evaluated and tested to ensure they meet the Netflix technical and workflow requirements, and their manufacturers are committed to providing the highest level of innovation, support and customer service.
Nuke is used by artists from all around the world to create breathtaking visual effects sequences. Nuke has been integral in the making of every VFX Oscar-winning film, award-winning TV shows and commercials for more than a decade. Support for industry standard workflows using OpenEXR, ACES, and a robust Python API and C++ SDK make Nuke a tool of choice for VFX pipelines.

Our missions to deliver exceptional quality via innovative workflows are completely aligned. Partnering with the Netflix Post Technology Alliance ensures we can further the industry together by supporting all content creators, from the smallest teams to the largest studios, in delivering ambitious projects to the exacting standards of Netflix.”
