I created this node for bulk keying purpose when I was tasked with what we called poor man's crowd sim in Nuke. Information of my usage can be view here:

But basically plug this node into a contact sheet, and it'll automatically detect its resolution and row/columns with expression. After that when you click the 'Create Crop Nodes!' button it'll create a bunch of crop nodes. Check 'Connect to Card node' if you wish to use these as 3D assets like I did, needless to say it will attach a card node right after every crop nodes it created.

Just how many crop nodes depends on your row/columns settings in the plugged in contact sheet node. Same goes with its crop region. After that just

  1. Select all the created crop nodes.
  2. Click on your Contact Sheet node. (Not Contact Sheet Crop)
  3. Hit 'Shift + U'
  4. You have cropped out everything you plugged into your contact sheet!

As you can imagine there's no concatenation between these so if your aim is some really high quality bulk processing, tuning up your resolution in ContactSheet node would probably help.

Example usage

 

This is a toolset instead of a gizmo, so to install it simply drop the downloaded nk file into your .nuke/ToolSets folder. Create one if you don't have a ToolSets folder in your .nuke folder. After that restart nuke and it should appear in your toolsets menu, and shows up when you hit tab and Type 'ContactSheetCrop'.
