Launch the source directory of the selected Read or Write node.
Written in Python, with Nuke 6.9 in mind, generate a Read node from the selected Write node.
Howdy! There's a newer version of this script here.
The script will attempt to load an image sequence or a single file (such as a movie file), based off the selected Write node. If the first and last frame can not be determined, it will fall back to the project settings’ frame range and throw a warning.
The script comes with one limitation; it assumes you render out any file sequences with a frame padding of four digits surrounded by period signs:
Supported real world examples:
- v1.4: Better sequence detection. If you had problems with 1.3, try this.
- v1.3: Write nodes with expressions now gets evaluated correctly.
- v1.2: Takes the ‘premultiplied’ setting from the Write node, auto-detects movie files frame ranges, better logic when detecting a frame range
- v1.1: Support for filenamefilter callback
- v1.0: Initial release
Place the Python script in the /scripts dir inside your
NUKE_PATH (see my previous post here on setting this up). Add the following to your
You should now be able to select any Write node and hit Shift + R to generate a Read node!
This is a quick guide to setting Nuke 6.3 up with a custom menu and make it work more seamlessly across operating systems.
In this third article on PsTools I talk about how to control V-Ray DR slaves remotely with the PsTools suite.
In this second part of managing Windows machines using the PsTools suite, we will look at how to automate processes involving interacting with a server.
One of the advantages of running Linux on render farm machines is the possibility to remotely manage them using the command line. However if you are running the farm on Windows, this is a whole different kind of story.
