The list author says: "This list is primarily being created as a wishlist for our school's library. All of the books contained within are books that I personally own or have read, and will provide a solid basis for an education in computer graphics.
I teach motion graphics, compositing, and visual effects at a design/animation college."
"There was no Nuke specific book prior to this edition, and "Nuke 101" fills a much needed gap. Clearly written and easy to follow, although a little more foundation in the basics of compositing might be useful before tackling this book. Recommended for intermediate users, or those looking to transition from one compositor to Nuke."
"The title ("Illusionist") is a little misleading. The text is great, and covers every single native After Effects plugin, but there is little in here that merits the title "illusionist". A fantastic guide to AE effects nonetheless, if only for its breadth."
