A tool designed to send selected nodes to an artist quickly and easily using a predefined email account. Great for collaborative efforts for roto, grade setups or whathaveyou. All this, OR simply email yourself a node setup for reference later!
This was originally built for our studio, meaning that it lives in a single place on our network and uses credentials for an email account that's only used for this script. Your needs may vary. Feel free to shoot me a message if you'd like something tweaked for your specific needs.
Select the nodes you want to send, hit tab and type 'Send nodes via email'
Punch in an email address (and optionally a subject) and we're good to go! The other artist would then paste the resulting text into their node tree.
1.) Copy the python file to a location that Nuke recognizes.
If you're doing this from scratch, try throwing it in a folder called 'python' within your '.nuke' folder, and add these lines to (or create one if it doesn't already exist) your .nuke/init.py:
2.) To actually add it to a nuke menu, add these lines to your menu.py (or create a .nuke/menu.py file if it doesn't already exist) and tweak to your liking:
m=menubar.addMenu('My super cool stuff and things')
m.addCommand('Send Nodes Via Email', 'import sendnodes; sendnodes.sendNodes()')
3.) Because I obviously don't know your email, you'll have to modify the 'fromaddr', 'username' and 'password' on lines 31-33 for this to work properly. For security sake, make sure it's a dummy account and not your personal email since we're storing the password as plain text here.
If we're not using a Gmail account, you may also need to modify the server on line 73.
Our studio is Mac-based (Odd, I know) and I haven't tested it on other platforms. This means it may work fine. Or explode. There's always that.
Yell at me if it breaks and I'll see if I can make it less bad.
