While working on a recent project I found I needed a tool to help me align/distribute nodes in the nodegraph, so I made this quick utility for just that. Featuring a very light-weight and minimalistic design, assign it to a keyboard shortcut and the rest is pretty self-explanatory. Buttons on the left of the divider are for alignment, buttons on the right are for distribution.

Compatible with Nuke 11. For earlier versions of nuke use v1.0 (which is otherwise the same).

To install copy the python file and icons folder into your .nuke directory and add the following lines to your file:

import ST_AlignAndDistributeNodes

new_menu ='Nuke').addMenu('probably replace this with something else')

new_menu.addCommand('Align nodes', 'show_align_ui()', 'ctrl+shift+a')

Modify the above line to whatever shortcut you need, I like ctrl+shift+a because it is fast and easy.

Suggestions are welcome!

If the node alignment is found not to be what you want, it can not restore the layout of the node before alignment.

Hello !
I'm new to nuke and wanted to install your plugin.
It seems to be integrated but when i click "probably replace this with something else" it tells me "name 'show_align_ui' is not defined".
Do you know what the problem is ?

Same as above for me
