Export the contents of the Hiero Spreadsheet view to a CSV file.
7.0, 6.3 or later
Linux, Mac, Windows
04 Sep 2013

This example exports all the visible columns and rows of in your Spreadsheet to a .CSV file.

This works with the raw data, currently displayed in the View, which means if you've searched in the search box, only the filtered results will be exported.

It also exports all text data displayed in custom columns.


1) Copy SpreadsheetExport.py it to ~/.hiero/Python/Startup
2) Right-click in Spreadsheet > Export as .CSV > Select a path to save to.

Note: this does not currently maintain the column ordering in the CSV, but does handle custom visible/hidden columns.

Please login in order to download these files.

This is just the tool I was looking for!
First I couldn't get the script loaded when i put it in /StartupUI/Pyth on directory. But after reading the manual I got it loaded when I put it in /Python/Startup directory.

Now its loaded but I get some error messages when trying to run it. Pasting console output here:

exporting CSV...
seq is Sequence('REMEMBER_50_SEK_DC_EDL')
Traceback (most recent call last):

Using the latest Hiero 1.5b8 version on windows. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hmmm, I tried it again with a different project and after a restart. And that works. Will try out a couple of other projects and see if it was just a bug with that spesific project.

I'm getting the same result. Any clue to why it gives that error?

Hi Antony

Is it possible to have an update of your python script that works with nukeStudio?

Many thanks

First of all, thank you very much for this handy tool and all your other hiero scripts, Antony!!

@Felix: I had no problem using it with nuke 9.0v7 in hiero mode. But it should also work with studio, I guess!
# Gaston Marcotti 2016-06-30 22:16
Hi, any chance to have it for NukeStudio? thank you
# Jen Thompson 2016-07-28 16:21
Can't get this to work for Nuke 10. Is there an updated script?
# Paul Wiens 2016-09-09 01:01
For Nuke 10, you just need to add 1 line at the top:

from hiero.core import *

- Paul
