About

AOV selector will show you all your layers grouped into convenient lists from anywhere within your script, and allow you to search, view, and work with them.

Usage

Select a node and press meta+a (windows+a on a PC, control+a on a mac), or access AOV Selector from the “Channel” menu.

AOV Selector will pop up with all of your layers sorted into lists.

You can start typing to filter the layers. Layers that do not contain the search term will become grayed out, but you can still click them. (clear search box to restore all layers).

Shift + Click a layer

Temporarily switch viewer to view selected layer at the selected node. (Viewer input and channel are restored when AOV selector closes.)

Click a layer

Create a shuffle node set to selected layer.

Ctrl/Command + Click a layer

Create a “Custom” node (defined in settings) and automatically set one of it’s knobs to the selected layer. (e.g. GradeAOV, pMatte).

Click on list heading

Create a contact sheet containing only the list’s layers.

 

With “Auto close” checked, AOV selector will close after creating a shuffle, “custom” node, or contact sheet. Disable it to be able to create multiple nodes without re-opening AOV selector.

To close AOV selector with “Auto close” disabled, click on the close button, click on the NUKE interface, or press esc.

Customization

Clicking on the gear in the top right will allow you to customise how AOV Selector sorts your layers, set up a “custom” node, and enable or disable “auto close”.

Hi,

Super useful! I have been using in in Nuke10.5. But I got an error below when launching Nuke 11.1v2

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "H:/.nuke/menu. py", line 786, in
import AOV_selector
File "C:/Users/chuan g/.nuke/nuke_sc ripts\AOV_selec tor.py", line 2, in
from PySide.QtGui import *
ImportError: No module named PySide.QtGui

Would it be possible to update the script to be compatible with Nuke 11?
