Known issues:

Lovely tool but I cant get the falloff to work?
How should it be setup internally - deepcolourcorre ct/expression?

Sry I didn't get a notification that someone commented... Probably too late but ya. The falloff might require some really high numbers, depends on the camera anim.

In Nuke 11.4 on Windows 10 and it is throwing the error
"'NoneType' object has no attribute 'keys'", any ideas what it might be?

I don't know what I am doing wrong. No matter if it is installed via the menu.py or just copy paste but everytime I hit "run" it says: NonType object has no attribute "knob".

And now it says:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 350, in
File "", line 56, in camkeychecker
ValueError: min() arg is an empty sequence

It seems the error people are getting is because this tool requires atleast one keyframe on all translate values before you run it. So even though you only animate it in z, you still need atleast one keyframe in x and y.
