Nucleo Updates

GridIron Software releases new versions By Ko Maruyama
GridIron Software, the makers of Nucleo and Nucleo Pro have announced the release of new updates to their popular multiprocessing plugin and new features to come for Nucleo Pro 2.  While After Effects CS3 has new features which takes the place of the smaller of the two plugins, GridIron has dedicated themselves to the support of their product for the earlier versions of After Effects ((AE 6.5 & 7)).

Work on the smaller plugin is giving way to allow GridIron Software to focus on other projects, Nucleo Pro 2 is going to get pumped up this summer with some serious upgrades for users.

The new functionality in Nucleo Pro 2 stretches far beyond the ability to use multiprocessor fast preview, spec preview and spec render, and the ability to commit layers to disk.  The new version of Nucleo Pro will support CS3 (as well as AE7) and will allow you to cache precomps!

An exciting new feature of Nucleo Pro 2 is the ability to use the render queue to render your 3D projects as well.  Simply drag/drop the files to the Nucleo Pro 2 render queue, and manage all of your processor hounds from one spot.

You can find out more about the plugin for After Effects by visiting the GridIron Software website here:
