Hi

I am trying to use your script. It would be so good if I could get it to work.

I made the program Nuke Backburner run ion admin mode

When I use it I get the following error

Any ideas?

I am using Backburner 2012.1 and nuke 6.3v8. Which version of Backburner are you using?

Hi Damon!
well... has some strange things in your console command...
for example...
Job description : Calling: C:Program FilesNuke6.3v8N uke6.3.exe
I don't know why don't have "/" in your program calling...
supposed to be like:
Calling: C:Program FilesNuke6.3v8N uke6.3.exe
Do you have select Nuke6.3.exe correctly using the "Find Nuke..." button?

Other thing... in parameters your project appear "J:TEST2.nk" right?
You have to remember... all the network servers have to access the same project!
More correctly to be like this:
"NetworkMachineNameYourProject.nk"

See if this works!
 
 
# diogo dubiella 2012-07-26 10:05
All Rigth!! The post remove all the "/" hehe! Is not wrong with your program calling... Forget that!

Probable you have to check if All The Server have access to your Nuke Project!
Like: NetworkMachineN ame > YourProject.nk

Hi Diogo

I think the problem is that there is no communication with the manager. I am using the Managers computer ip address and the correct submask

All my paths are now UNC network paths
 
 
# diogo dubiella 2012-08-13 11:55
I'm sorry the delay... I don't received emails about this reply... sorry
So... do you solved the problem? everything works?
 
 
# Damon O'Connell 2012-08-13 12:14
Yes your script works!

I had a couple of problems.

Bacburner 2013 install fixed the cmdjob not communicating.

Then there was the Flexlm license issues.

I have a request.

Is it possible to put in a -i command into the script. It would be good if you had an option to get the interactive nuke license rendering as well.
 
 
# Patrick David 2012-09-13 19:32
Hi Diogo,

Awesome script!!! After struggling with several render managers for simple nuke work on a short film we settled on this script and backburner because it's free, relatively simple and multiplatform (backburner is availble on win/osx/linux).
I did get your submitter v1.1 working on mac osx with a few modifications to the code and backburner 2012. I assume it would also work with Linux since the path structure is very similar!
It is high time there was a very simple free local render queue manager for nuke and this might be the ticket.

I could send you this adapted code if you like, maybe it would be possible to make it completely cross-platform.
 
 
# BIll Marsh 2012-09-17 07:27
Are you going to make an OS X version?
 
 
# diogo dubiella 2012-09-18 00:32
Hi! Patrick
Thnks... and yes... I've been looking... and is True!... the path structure is very similar ... I don't have much knowledge in xcode
I just did little things... but I'll try...
could take awhile... but I just have to adapt this code.
I appreciate it if you send me your adapted code!

Thanks

Hi Diogo,

First, Thank you so much! Your script is really usefull and I hadn´t any problem running it from the first time...... I´ve just one comment/sugesti on: Is there a way to read the frame range right from nuke script globals and put it automatically into fields?It will be gorgeous!

Thank you,
Rodrigo E.

I got exactly same issue with you too, though I'm using Nuke 7. ..

My response message is :

Parameters : -i -X Write1 C:\Users\Toby\D esktop\test.nk %tp2,%tp3
The job will trigger 1 task(s)

however no tasks are triggered in Manager.

Yeh! the log is always right!
Try submit again, but change the port to: 7347
 
 
# Philippe HUBERDEAU 2015-06-11 10:06
Hello Diogo,
Nice tool, it surely is usefull in the Max/Backburner studio, thanks.
I wonder for what reason do you create an external tool and not a python script. In my opinion, it would be more handy as you wouldn't have to handle different OS, and moreover, we'll be able to select which Write nodes to send. A more automated way.
So i would be interested to know the reason.
 
 
# Eric Mc Guire 2015-06-11 17:04
It would be very useful to add a timeout parameter, as most of the problems coming from rendering with backburner come from this value being too short. Great script.
 
 
# Alan Latteri 2015-07-15 07:31
I have tried extract both version 1.8 and 1.7 of this, and both fail. The zip extracts to an exe which fails to run.
 
 
# mohammad farid 2015-10-10 12:20
thanks man
good script
i like it
 
 
# Will Nicholson 2016-06-01 19:34
I love this script, but when I upgraded to nuke 10, it no longer finds Nuke. It finds all other versions, but not 10.

Any ideas?
 
 
# roshan maharjan 2017-08-30 11:14

# iiiopoxx iiiopoxx 2018-09-12 15:12

# nariman safarov 2018-10-19 19:28
