  • With this tiny path in your Autosave will be enough to be happy and safe

    idl Comp autosave after 30

    Force Comp autosave after 180

    [value root.name]-[expr int ([expr [scan [date %M] %d]%30]/3)].autosave

  • Add this in write node before Render and he will write your folder for you.

    #always nuke writes folders. put inside write node in before render import os if not os.path.isdir(os.path.dirname(nuke.thisNode() ['file'].evaluate())): os.makedirs(os.path.dirname(nuke.thisNode()['file'].evaluate()))

  • FrameHold set up as frame you are.

    nuke.menu('Nodes').addCommand('Time/FrameHold', "nuke.createNode('FrameHold')['first_frame'].setValue(nuke.frame())", icon= 'FrameHold.png')

Nuke Tools

This a small list of the python tools that I've been working on.

Tools to have better behavior when saving or comping...

Auto write nodes for final render, precomp, elements, etc...
