This is nothing but amazing. Wow. Thank you very much for this!
I can't imagine how much time and effort went into this, the function and detail is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing!

I don't know if you also search for bugs, I just noticed the first "Enable" button in the general tab is without function; regardless if it's checked or not, corrections are applied. The "Clear" button works like anticipated :)

What a great plugin!!
If I may add an feature request. (working on OSX with a Wacom pen.) would be great to have a easy reset method (I have no middle mouse button) something like, command + click and add a reset option in the submenu or so.

I have not yet got it working on the farm. anyone else, am I missing something?

Thanks for sharing!

love the node but getting errors on deadline when I try to farm render, saying RunNodeC not defined?

otherwise, love it :)

Absolutely amazing gizmo. However the hue corrections are reset when I copy the gizmo or reopen a saved comp. Nuke9.0v7
0 # jordi garcia 2016-11-10 18:42
Started to have problems with 10.0.4
When I save and reopen it's disconnected and with a very weird color.
Anyone experienced that ?
0 # Joris Seghers 2017-01-19 11:24
I keep getting the error message 'DLL load failed: The specific module could not be found.' when opening the properties panel for the node. What am I doing wrong? It does work when rendering from Nuke but I can't get it to work with Deadline.

Cheers Joris
+1 # Octavio Alonso 2017-05-05 07:06
Im getting this message every time I open the node: "NoneType object has no attribute ´knob´"
0 # Andrew Coleman 2017-07-27 16:23
Any word on when this will be updated for Nuke 11?
Looking forward to it, thanks.

Looking forward to it, thanks.

As the public version have a lot of bugs, and the stand alone nature of it (the code included in the node) causing some problems with some 3rd party network renders i have done some rewriting of it. But i don't have any estimates on when its going to be done.
0 # Octavio Alonso 2017-08-20 14:01
Please, update the tool soon,. Its the only one that do this kind of job and its wonderful
0 # Andrew Coleman 2017-09-08 19:58
Anyone have the problem where the color wheels disappear in the 3way LGG and SMH? Running 10.5v3
0 # Rodrigo Elias 2017-12-26 16:41
Lue4Nuke is realy great!! Thanks Mads Hagbarth for this tool.

I have a problem that could be simple to solve. When someone open a Nuke Script at Nuke Assist that has Lue4Nuke Gizmo, it turns gray every knob and after save & close we can´t edit it even in the NukeX Gui.... Has any workaround to it?

Thank you!

Feature Request:

Can you add the ability to select a layer from a multichannel exr (i.e. diffuse, spec, reflection) and have it merge it back into the stream as the updated/graded layer.

Currently, it's only working on rgb.

0 # Caleb Dermyer 2018-05-02 14:14
wonderful tool, thank you!
I just started using it a few months ago, and now I've updated to nuke 11. Any chance of an update?
0 # Andrew Kennedy 2018-05-30 23:14
I noticed that when saving the node, only the "red" knob in the "Exposure1" node inside the gizmo is saving its value. The green and blue values are reset to zero. Unfortunately this prevents remote rendering because a user will always have to adjust the Exposure slider in the Primaries tab in order to hard-reset the knobs.

Possibly what is happening is that the ganged knobs don't update until a change is detected.

Is there any chance of getting this fixed? We love using your tool, but unfortunately it doesn't work on render farms when this happens.

Dear, Harghbarth
What about Lue for Nuke10-11 with pyside2 ?
0 # Stephen Willey 2018-09-27 13:46
To use this in Nuke 11 you just need to deal with the following lines in the init_colorwheel knob of the gizmo:

import PySide.QtGui as QtGui
import PySide.QtCore as QtCore
from PySide.QtGui import *
from PySide.QtCore import *
from PySide.QtWebKit import *

From what I can see, the bottom 3 can just be removed. Then you just need to use your preferred method to deal with importing QtGui and QtCore in a way that works for both PySide and PySide2.

Here's a patched version works with nuke 11, i have not tested it at all lol... but it doesn't crash and the color wheels work :D
