This is a Thumbnail exporter which can be used via the Export dialog to export thumbnail images from Shots, Clips and Sequences.

Thumbnails can be given a custom size and exported as PNG/JPG/TIFF/BMP.

You can pick thumbnails from the first/middle/last or custom offset frames.

The Thumbnail image export task which can be used via the Export dialog via Shot, Clip or Sequence Processors

To install, copy the and to your /Python/Startup directory.

Add a 'Thumbnail Exporter' in the context side of the export dialog, and construct a Path with {ext} at the end to resolve to the image file type (png/jpg/tif/bmp). Frame type can be taking from first/middle/last or a custom offset frame. You can optionally reformat the thumbnail to a particular size. Additionally, the following specific export tokens can be used in the Path:

{frametype} - Position where the thumbnail was taken from (first/middle/last/custom)
{srcframe} - The frame number of the original source clip file used for thumbnail
{dstframe} - The destination frame (timeline time) number used for the thumbnail

Love this one! One thing I stumbled over today though was that I couldn't apply "additional nodes" when exporting here. Needed to burn in a LUT to the AlexaV3LogC material I thumbified. =) Not sure that it even uses nuke for the exports so might not be possible? =)

Thanks a lot for this stuff !

i have a problem with this py, it doesn't matter how big the output pixel size, the exported pictures always containing some low res with some post upscale....

Hi Ant ,

Would it be possible to have the option of not resizing the image before exporting ? So if I would like to have a full res image of every shot I could.
I tried looking into your .py and I think I got a few things out and basically had it stop working for me.

Cheers !

Love you Python script, I use them for Nuke Studio

Just as Mark asks for it would be nice to get unscaled full res thumbs. But when looking at it it seems like it doesn't grab the frame from the source, but from a preGenerated thumb on the clip. And that thumb does probably have a fixed size already.

So I think it's probably a "freeze frame" exporter we need where we can set the frame and size just like in this thumb exporter. =)

Very nice little python-thingie that has helped me a ton of times. Any chance of an update compatible with 10.5? :)

The UI portion doesn't seem to load up in Nuke Studio 10.5v3 I've added the scripts to the appropriate folders and the export task seems to work, but there's no options that appear for export.

I'd love an options to export frames at full rez and include Annotations in the exports. :) Just a thought.

Does anyone has a PySide2 version of these?

There is a version in here that works up to 12.2 but is broken in 13.
