Quickly set knobDefaults on the fly by just right clicking on a knob and choosing 'default->set as new knobDefault'. So no programming needed to set knob defaults. Save all knobDefaults in presets and import, edit and export them

With the 'default' knobDefaults (default values ??of Knobs when creating nodes) can be created in nuke on the fly. And without programming. Just change a knob with the value that you like to have as knobdefault value and then right click on the knob. In the menu that appears select 'default-> set as new knobDefault' (see chart below). Whenever you create a node, this value is permanently set as default. To delete this knobDefault right click on the knob and select 'default-> reset'.





security validity check on xml files which can reset them if there is a problem and if the user chooses to do so.



Bug fix in the validity check of nodes and knobs.



default window: shows all of your custom knobDefaults. You can add new custom knobDefaults and edit and delete your custom knobDefaults directly inside the default window. The default window is accessible through your menu bar: Scripts->default->defaults window
In addition you can now create presets. All knobDefaults can then be saved within a preset. You can create multiple presets which can be edited, imported and exported.



right click a knob and choose default→show knob list. A pop up window appears showing all knobs of the node. Choose a knob and set its new default value. With that you get access to set default values of all knobs of each node, even if it's a dropdown (didn't work in previous versions, because you can't actually natively create a right click menu for a dropdown in Nuke. now you can do that.)



How to instal default

Simon - Is there a reason why you are only distributing the .pyc and not including the source ?
I get that you've put a ton of work into this and that's appreciated but thought I would ask since I wanted to customize something for our facility ?

Hey Andrew. Yes, actually it has some special reasons. Can you go to and send me a message?
