This keyboard shortcut will align all selected dots with their input and output node, placing them in a straight corner.

Running it multiple times will make the dot switch between possible positions. Also works for nodes with multiple inputs.

Keyboard shortcut: alt+shift+z
(can be changed in the file!)

1. Place the AlignDots folder in your .nuke folder (or somewhere else on your computer)

2. Go to your .nuke folder, and create a file called ''. If such a file already exists, open it.

3. In the file, add this line of text to the end and save it:



If you want to place the AlignDots folder somewhere else than in the .nuke folder, make sure to change the './AlignDots'-path in the file so that it points to that other path instead!




Installation using NukeShared:


1. Place the AlignDots folder in the '_AutoInstaller' repository.


NukeShared is a way of installing plugins by dragging/dropping them in folders, see my website ( for more information.

Hey man, super awesome, thank you.

I had some perfomance issues with a big script, so I made one change that will make it much much faster.

Line 18:
listDotOut = n.dependent(nuk e.INPUTS, forceEvaluate = False)

Line 189 and 190:
nIn = selNode.dependencies(nuke.INPUTS)
nOut = selNode.depende nt(nuke.INPUTS, forceEvaluate = False)
