What is re-lighting in VFX?
Relight is a quick method to re-illuminate scenes in a 2D environment, using particular techniques or tools, applying a 3D shader to an image to your 2D footage, going to work on the different passes of the levels of the elements of the scene.
Using this relight node tool in Nuke allows you to capture a 2D image and turn it back on using 3D lights in the scene.
