This update focuses on making this tool more production friendly, functional and efficient.
 
HeatWave v4.0 is presented with two points, POS and WIND, which are overlayed in the viewer.
 
POS represents the initial position of the heat source. Moving this point affects the translation of the distortion. If a plate's heat source moves over time, POS can be animated to match its position.
 
WIND represents the angle at which the distortion travels. Moving this point around POS will only affect its angle, not its strength. Wind angle can also be animated and controlled either with a point or with a slider.

How to install:
 
- Place the “Damian_Binder” folder inside your .nuke folder.
 
- Add this to your init.py file located in your .nuke folder:
 
# DAMIAN BINDER TOOLS
nuke.pluginAddPath('./Damian_Binder')
nuke.pluginAddPath('./Damian_Binder/HeatWave')
 
 
- Add this to your menu.py file also located in your .nuke folder:
 
# DAMIAN BINDER TOOLS
toolbar = nuke.toolbar('Nodes')
m = toolbar.addMenu('DamianBinder', icon='DamianBinderNukeLogo.png')
m.addCommand('HeatWave', 'nuke.createNode(\'HeatWave\')', icon='HeatWave_Icon.png')
 
 
*** If you don't have init.py and menu.py files inside your .nuke folder, use the ones provided.
 
*** If the folder “Damian_Binder” already exists in your .nuke folder (because of already installed tools by Damian Binder like DefocusPlus or Looper for example), move the “HeatWave” folder (located inside the downloaded “Damian_Binder” folder) to the already installed “Damian_Binder” folder.
 
*** If  you have older versions of HeatWave installed (like v3.0), take into consideration that HeatWave v4.0 now has its own dedicated folder inside the “Damian_Binder” folder. Older versions had two separate folders (Gizmos and Icons) which should be removed to ensure that the latest version is being loaded correctly.

Unfortunately does not work in nuke 10. Changing values doesnt do anything :-/ Works amazing in nuke 9 though!

Heading image did not show up on Windows. Fixed by changing line 14 of the HeatWave.gizmo to:
addUserKnob {52 CREDITS T "nuke.thisNode( ).knob(\"Credit s\").setValue(\ "\"%(nuke.plugi nPath()[[i for i, s in enumerate(nuke. pluginPath()) if '/Damian_Binder /icons' in s.replace(nuke. os.sep,'/')][0] ]+'/HeatWave_cr edits.png'))" +STARTLINE}

edit:
nukepedia screws up the spacing in the text above, so copy from here instead: https://pastebin.com/raw/JWrVMJik

Hey Fynn, thanks for pointing that out!
It's a bit weird since i've tested it on Windows too and it was working fine. I might just remove the header completely in future updates since it takes a lot of space and it is not really practical. Will see. I hope that at least the rest of the tool is working fine for you!

I switched the if statement to:

Quote:
if os.path.join('Damian_Binder','icons')'
and it took care of the issue :)

Hi Damian,
First of all, love the tool! But I keep getting some strange results.

I sometimes noticed the heatwave "image" and "mask" input keeps connecting to random nodes after saving and reopening.

Any chance you might know what could cause this issue?
 
 
# tristan zerafa 2019-10-23 13:48
Just started cropping up in my work too, nukex 11.2v5 on Windows 10

Hi guys,

Aldo this has never happened to me personally, I had some users telling me that they were having the same issue. I have the suspicion that it might be an onCreate callback which nuke doesn't seem to handle very well. Here is something you could try:

1. Convert the gizmo to a group.

2. Copy the group and paste it in a text editor.

3. Look for this line near the start and delete it:

onCreate "node = nuke.thisNode() \n\nw = node.width()/2\ n\nh = node.height()/2 +300\n\nif not node.knob('firs tCreation').val ue():\n\n node.knob('p1') .setValue((w,h) )\n\n node.knob('firstCreation').setValue(True)"

4. Select all the text and copy/paste it back to nuke.


Let me know if this fixes it so I can keep it in mind for future updates.

Great tool!

I had the same problem as Remco, when opening saved comp, mask inputs were randomly disconnected (Nuke 12.0 in Linux). Deleting this line from gizmo seems to have fixed it.

# Joe Censoplano 2020-01-29 19:19

I tried the fix above but it didn't work

Great tool! thanks alot, What is the Custom input for? :-)
 
 
# Damian Binder 2020-10-18 10:01
It allows you to use custom elements like fire or smoke footage to drive the distortion. Needs an alpha channel to work.
