Updated version of my original pixelsort plugin - this time in BlinkScript, so it works in newer Nuke versions! And added some new features.
14.0, 13.2, 13.1, 13.0, 12.2, 12.1, 12.0, 11.3, 11 or later

Some have asked for an updated PixelSort plugin, so I decided to rewrite it in Blinkscript. (I did not feel like compiling for every new Nuke version.)
It is improved and it works with new Nuke versions now! Enjoy!


PixelSort sorts pixels row-by-row, based on their luminance. Or based on a custom input channel, if you like.
It produces stylized glitch-like effects, see my website for more information and examples!

See this video (youtube) for a demo of PixelSort and PixelRepeat (a similar gizmo) combined!

Painting the sorting threshold is possible using the custom Sort input:

1. Place the PixelSort folder in your .nuke folder (or somewhere else on your computer)

2. Go to your .nuke folder, and create a file called 'init.py'. If such a file already exists, open it.

3. In the init.py file, add this line of text to the end and save it:



If you want to place the folder somewhere else than in the .nuke folder, make sure to change the path in the init.py file so that it points to that other path instead!



Installation using NukeShared


1. Place the PixelSort folder in the '_AutoInstaller' repository.


NukeShared is a way of installing plugins by dragging/dropping them in folders, see my website (maxvanleeuwen.com/nukeshared) for more information.

I've never used Python but I'm decent with computers and learn quickly. Can someone explain the installation to me like I'm a 5 year old. I've installed Python and saved the file in a ".nuke" folder that I created. From there I'm stuck. Please and thank you.
