Often when we work in Nuke, we miss something we’ve been spoiled with by Adobe – this time Layer Styles. Let us introduce to you our Nuke replicate of Adobe Photoshop’s Layer Styles.
We dissected the most commonly used layer styles and put them into a handy gizmo that can either act as Merge node, directly applying the styles, or create the styles and shuffle them into separate channels, preserving them for later use.
You can either plug in a background and a foreground and have it merged with your desired layer styles, or use the checkbox “Into Separate Channels” to keep the RGBA channels unaffected and instead render the layer styles into their own respective channels, like “dropShadow.”
Bevel and Emboss is working a bit differently from its big brother Photoshop, as it relies on Nuke’s Bumpboss node which some of Bevel and Emboss’ knobs control directly.
We chose to omit the layer styles pattern and gradient overlay as well as texture within bevel and emboss because those can be created easier and tidier using Merge nodes.
We rarely saw the satin style in use, so we didn’t include it either, although we might just implement it if there turns out to be a demand.
