This is a modified version of Nuke's own AutoBackdrop script - it makes a gray backdrop around the selected nodes, and gives a dialog box in which you can enter the label text. Stacked backdrops will be darker, and the backdrops are slightly bigger.
If no nodes are selected, you can use the same dialog box for StickyNotes!
If you often make backdrops with labels, this will save you some time. And no more rainbow-coloured backdrops in your scripts.
Keyboard shortcut: alt+b
(can be changed in the menu.py file!)
At the top of the python script, you can change some parameters (like color, scaling, etc).
1. Place the GrayAutoBackdrop folder in your .nuke folder (or somewhere else on your computer)
2. Go to your .nuke folder, and create a file called 'init.py'. If such a file already exists, open it.
3. In the init.py file, add this line of text to the end and save it:
If you want to place the folder somewhere else than in the .nuke folder, make sure to change the path in the init.py file so that it points to that other path instead!
Installation using NukeShared
1. Place the GrayAutoBackdrop folder in the '_AutoInstaller' repository.
NukeShared is a way of installing plugins by dragging/dropping them in folders, see my website (maxvanleeuwen.com/nukeshared) for more information.
