convert any read node to its correct input node. This ensures that you can simply drag and drop all files from your explorer to your node graph and and automatically convert to the correct input read node. Works with deep exr, abc, fbx, obj
Requirements:
10.0, 9.0, 8.0 or later

Simple and small script but hopefully useful to some of you :-) I find it constantly annoying that when you drag and drop a deep exr into your node graph that a read node is created instead of a propper deep read node. Same wrong behaviour for alembic-, fbx and obj files in which you will always get a read node which is useless.. So here we go.

Convert any read node to the correct input node. This ensures that you can simply drag and drop all files from your explorer to your node graph and then simply convert to the correct format without manually creating the correct input node.

conversions:

deep data: convert read node to deep read node
abc: convert read node to readgeo node
fbx: convert read node to camera node
obj: convert read node to readgeo node

After installation is done simply drag and drop some files into your dag. In your menu bar your 'Edit' menu entry will have to new commands:

Edit -> convert file node (guess): this will try to convert to the best suitable node automatically. The conversion node is managed by the guess list inside the script which can be edited if needed.
Edit -> convert file node (manual): this will open the convert panel to select the desired convert node manually

 

How to instal convert

Download convert and copy the whole folder into your nuke home directory.

Thanks Simon, so much the feature that must be in Nuke by default!

Hey Alexey, thanks. Yes agree :-)

but thanks to the openness of nuke if something isn't implemented you can simply program it yourself :-)
