You can add this line to your

menuToolbar = nuke.toolbar('Nodes')
geoffToolbar = menuToolbar.addMenu('GeoffTools')

geoffToolbar.addCommand('Shortcut/Backdrop', 'autobackdrop.autoBackdrop()', 'Alt+m')

'Alt+m' is the hotkey I chose for this script, feel free to change if you want.

Enjoy ;-)

hi Geoffroy i tried using your script and i get an error:

"name 'autoBackdrop' is not defined"

I have no knowledge of python so i can't really troubleshoot it myself sorry.

I'm using nuke 6.2v2 x64.

Hi Romain,
You can copy this code to your and copy the labelAutobackdr in the same folder (it should be: ~/.nuke):

import labelAutobackdrop

menuToolbar = nuke.toolbar('Nodes')
geoffToolbar = menuToolbar.addMenu('GeoffTools')

geoffToolbar.addCommand('Shortcut/Backdrop', 'labelAutobackd rop.autoBackdro p()', 'Alt+m').

Sorry for the confusion Romain, it was the wrong code for the Hope you will enjoy it!

Hi Geoffroy,

thank you for your answer. I just tried your script and i find it very usefull, I think it improves greatly the use of the backdrop node making it easy to color/name it without those annoying extra clicks that are otherwise required.

Hey Geoffroy,

Seems like this tool doesn't like Nuke 13+. It gives me this error.

"%x format: an integer is required, not float"

Is there something that needs to be updated to get it to work? Thanks!
