toolset/python tool to deal with all $gui expressions in a nuke script (works on root and inside groups). the tool lets you bake the inverted expressions (to make sure the comp-tree looks exactly the same as the render from the renderfarm) Checks for deleted nodes, existing expressions etc. before storing or restoring knob's $gui expressions. If expressions exist, user will get the option to replace or skip. Tool works on index level for knobs

Tool to deal with $gui expressions in a nuke script.
Specifically developed for when taking over someones nuke script with hidden $gui expression, and trying to figure out whats going on, or when you have to consolidate someone elses script for a vendor share and can't figure out why the render looks different than the comp-tree.

See image for a full run down of how the tool works, and all the features of the tool. (PS: this is now out of date as the major update has many improvents not mentioned in the picture, this will be updated soon)


If you run into any unexpected behavior when using the tool, please feel free to contact me, feedback is welcome



minor update to user interface and fixing how a message with useful info is displayed to the user when restoring expressions.
v1.2: removed the header of nuke file (so users won't get a message saying tool was created with a certain version of nuke, no change to tool)

v2.0: major update, tool now works with indexes (if a node has multiple expression on the same knob, but different index)
         duplicates are now allowed, subdulicates on the other hand is not allowed, much improved display messages to let user know what has
         been restored/stored, if there is existing expressions, etc.

v2.1: minor update to fix support for nuke 11/12  (pySide version fix)



This explination picture in now out if date, as the tool has namy more functions added.. this picture will be replaced with a new explination soon

v2 now includes handling of expressions on same knob that is on different indexes, plus many more updated features, for a more correct store/restore process of the $gui expressions.

v2.1 update: now works for nuke 11/12. The restore gui function was using the old pySide version. This should now be fixed.
