What is taukeke

A dumping site for various Nuke tips and tutorials by Huey Yeng! Wait I already written some matte painting and Vray tutorials. Not to forget random articles–

Seems like the site has grown into a collection of various 3DCG related tutorials too and hopefully more coding stuff in the near future!

Old Disclaimer: Majority of my tutorials are written mainly from my self-taught experience and of course a tiny bit of real world TVC VFX compositing experience from my internship life. You might want to look elsewhere if professional experience is a requirement. Wait please stay here-

The History of taukeke

Just an experimental site to try out HTML5 way back in late 2009. The site have live through several web hosting service that started from 110MB, Shinjiru Malaysia, HostGator and currently Digital Ocean.

The site is now fully powered by WordPress and hosted at Digital Ocean.

Digital Ocean is a cloud-based hosting service although you need to setup everything from scratch. The excellent part is you have full control on what’s going on your server plus it is bloody cheap at USD $5 monthly for the cheapest tier!

You can try Digital Ocean with this referral link (and seriously, this is my first time I’m recommending others for a web hosting service).

  • 15 September 2015 – For those who genuinely want to visit my site, you can either use Google Cache or using proxy service like Hola to bypass the restriction that I’ve put on selected countries (which unfortunately I can’t name here but you should know if you managed to bypass it). I really want actual human users who are interested with my site content instead of spambots.
  • 14 September 2015 – Implemented iQ Block Country to reduce spam attacks on my site (due to recent AdSense suspension). Apology for those who are unable to view the site from affected countries!
  • 13 September 2015 – Removed Google AdSense from the site due account suspension by Google. :D The site will be ads-free from now on!

2015 June
  • 29 June 2015 – The lack of new posts recently was due to me on vacation in The Witcher 3 world during weekends–
  • 21 June 2015 – I got a mild fever for the past few days so once again, there will be no new post for this week.
  • 15 June 2015 – Updates will be slower than usual until further notice. Also Survival Tips 101: Make sure to learn various languages other than English to survive the era of globalisation. I legitimately says English is not sufficient to survive the working industry in Malaysia.
  • 09 June 2015 – How often do you flip a table? This week Nuke Tips explore the various flipbook methods before you flip an actual physical table. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
  • 08 June 2015 – There will be less update for this month as I’m trying to get used to my full-time job schedule (with a daily 4 hours of public transport commuting). Plus The Witcher 3 is sucking every last bit of my free time during weekend.
  • 03 June 2015 – The website is up without a single MySQL DB crash since Sunday so I’m hoping the site will not go down during work. Also no new Nuke Tips for now until this weekend which covers the use of Nuke’s Viewer as an alternative flipbook.

2014 September

  • 29 September 2014 – Another weekly Nuke Tips update covering Card3D vs Card.
  • 27 September 2014 – Finally sorted out Nuke Tips content into individual post. The Nuke Tips page will act as the hub for current and future posts where it will list down all tips by its published date.
  • 25 September 2014 – Not really a site update but Nvidia just launched the GeForce GTX 980 and 970. Anyone looking to explore GPU based rendering such as Octane Render, this is a good time to grab one especially GTX 970 for USD $350! Much much cheaper than my GTX 780 and performs slightly faster with lower power consumption.
  • 17 September 2014 – Nuke Tips page is getting much heavier in total file size every week. I’ll be arranging every tips into individual post in the near future while the page will remain as an index list to all the tips.
  • 12 September 2014 – Implemented WP Super Cache to served cached file for faster page loading.
  • 10 September 2014 – There will be no new post until further notice due to my current unforeseen schedule. Nuke Tips will still be updated weekly as usual. Also some plugins is not functioning correctly with WordPress 4.0 for now but it does not impact the navigation and look of the site (although some might noticed the change on this page itself).
  • 05 September 2014 – Updated WordPress to 4.0. Hopefully the site is not broken in any capacity.
  • 04 September 2014 – I’m currently testing out Nuke 9 Beta and also the upcoming Nuke Studio. Since The Foundry ask for beta tester to not reveal anything about the software as it is still in beta phase so I’m documenting the significant changes between version 8 and 9 together with how Nuke Studio solved the Nuke and Hiero roundtrip workflow (which I’ll get the post up by Sunday). I’ll share my beta testing experience at here when Nuke 9 and Nuke Studio officially release sometime around the end of the year.
