This is largely based on Frank's import_boujou tcl script, ported to python.

This python version also supports image sequences not starting at frame 1, and "partial" exports from Boujou's timeline. Also added the option to choose between different kind of primitives to use as locators.

Usage: Copy somewhere in your NUKE PATH. Import it in your Add a menu item that calls importBoujou.importBoujou().

Selecting the menu option will then prompt the user for a .txt file. If one is selected, the user is then asked to choose between Axis, Cylinders or Cones to be created for each locator:


After accepting the dialog a scene will be created with a camera and a group containing all the locators in the .txt file.

looks so useful script but I cant make it work.

I am using Nuke 6.1

I am have create a nuke directory in my home directory which is linked with the C:userProgram FilesNuke6.1v1p
Inside that directory I have all my custom tools, mainly gizmos. I have also another
which looks for files in these three directives. Your script is placed in the "python" directory.

I have also the which contain the following line in order to load your script:
newMenu.addComm and('Boujou2Nuk e', 'importBoujou.i mportBoujou()', 'Slate.png')

But there is no luck, cause "ImportBoujou is not defined"

Can you please give me more detail about how to install it?

import importBoujou
toolbar = nuke.toolbar("Nodes")
toolbar.addCommand('importBoujou', 'importBoujou.i mportBoujou()', icon="Tracker.p ng")
