* Now compatible with Nuke 13

Stamps Icon Stamps is a production-ready node connection system for Nuke, that enables placing the main assets in a single place on the Node Graph, through distinct nodes with hidden inputs that reconnect themselves when needed.

Auto-Reconnection
Auto-Reconnection avoids having to think about copying and pasting nodes (or even node trees) and maintaining their connections, even between different nuke scripts. You can also feel confident that you can always find where the stamp needs to be connected to thanks to the Advanced Reconnect functionality.

Single contextual hotkey
Using Stamps for the artist is as easy as remembering a single hotkey.
The hotkey is context-dependent, so it performs many different actions based on what’s selected.

Production-ready
Stamps has been thoroughly used in production and is currently used in studios of all sizes, and its development has been shaped by the feedback from compositors with different workflows and backgrounds. Trixter was the first studio to implement Stamps studio-wide in the compositing pipeline.

Quick selection functionality
The tag system allows for organising the stamps into categories for super quick access to every Stamp from any part of the node graph. The Anchor Selection Panel will let you quickly search for the Stamp you want, sorting based on different filters like their tags, the labels of the backdrops where they live, or their popularity (how many times you've used them).

More...
The user guide and tutorial videos are an in-depth look into all the features and workflows of Stamps, the benefits of using it, why we believe it gives a solution to the common problems of working with hidden inputs and why it is now a core part of out compositing workflow. They also show how to set up smart templates, the extra stuff included with stamps like W_Hotbox buttons, as well as all the customisation options for each specific pipeline's requirements.

Awesome job Adrian/Alexey, thanks for sharing! Now i can finally get rid of my own "light" version of this :)

Totally addicted to this feature! Thank you very much for sharing that, Alexey and Adrian
Hope that all companies will introduce it in their workflow

This looks awesome. Looking foward to start using it.

Excellent work!

Getting my Hands on this for free feels kind of crazy. I see so much time and thought that went into it. Thanks so much for sharing your work with the community! And I mean it is a workflow improvement thats a huge potential time saver. I see me using it a lot!

Truly a massive workflow improvement once you start using stamps for awhile and it becomes second nature. I am not sure how you could achieve the same level of speed and optimization with any other "hidden input" system. So happy this is available for the community, thanks guys!

Love this. Been using a similar workflow with the PostageStampKit for a while, but this makes it so much easier as it creates the anchors etc. for you. Only one small issue I noticed, if you have a deep input that ends with a switch or a group/gizmo, the anchor automatically becomes a 2D anchor and the stamp won't connect. I fixed this by just adding "Switch", and "Group" to the InputIgnoreClas ses variable in the stamps.py file.

Thank you so much for writing and sharing this tool. It helps a lot in maintaining a clean B pipe. It makes scripts very clear, readable, and most importantly very efficient.
 
 
0 # Guillaume Charron 2020-06-03 16:06
This is really effective!! Thx for all the hard work pulling this out.
Do you think, in a future version, we could get a postage stamps when we stamps a read node?
 
 
0 # Adrian Pueyo 2020-06-09 09:04
Thanks Guillaume! That's already done for v1.1 :) Hope it's ready really soon.

Hi! Awesome tool.
I was wondering what if I got this installed but one of my colleagues open my script and he hasn't the tool yet?
 
 
0 # Casey Yahnke 2021-03-04 01:12
Yeah I was wondering the same thing.
 
 
0 # Adrian Pueyo 2021-03-11 19:50
Hey, won't crash for them. As specified in the videos/docs, they will only lose some of the smart functionality, auto-reconnecti on etc but it will basically be like a normal NoOp node.

Hi everyone. I love this script and use it a lot for my jobs. So I decided to fix it for nuke 13 , when we're waiting an official next version from the Adrian Pueyo and Alexey Kuchinski. You can download from the link below. Enjoy it.

Thank you ThanhHung! The color thing looks really cool. Although I try to encourage a fixed color workflow, I can see some artists might like to change them.

I just published the v1.1.0 release.Do not hesitate to fork it as needed :-)

Amazing tool, sadly for us it fails to render on Deadline farms.
The line that hides the stamps when out of the GUI seems to be the problem:

if nuke.GUI:\n try:\n .......etc deadline things is a path and change them to " if nuke.GUI:/n try:/n i guess.
 
 
0 # Pal Tauszig 2022-04-14 16:44
it works for me (stamps v1.1, win10, nuke v13.1.3, deadline v10.1)

Hey there, this is one of my fav tools. Noticed an issue with cameras though. When I have a camera stamp, it gets a narrower FOV than my original. This difference can be seen in the 3d view when both the original and stamp are selected. Using the latest 1.1 you had posted. Thanks!
 
 
0 # Adrian Pueyo 2021-12-28 22:21
Hey Anthony, thanks for your message! This has been noted, unfortunately it's an issue related with DummyCam v1.3, the node used to give Camera stamps a circular shape. It happens only in the following situation: animated knobs on the camera projection tab, and time operations after the Stamp (ie FrameHold). I'm currently looking for a solution for this bug, but for now I'd recommend changing the camera stamps class to NoOp - this can be configured easily in the stamps_config.p y file.

Hey Adrian, hey Alexey,

thanks for this awesome Toolkit. I already worked with it in several pipelines and it is such a great way to deal with your connections!

There is one small issue that happened, when I shared a script with an artist, who didn't have the whole toolkit installed: The moment you try to change the slightest thing in the anchor or wire, Nuke is giving out a lot of Python errors, which lead to a few seconds of freeze sometimes.
I guess it is connected to the "knobChanged"-k nob, which tries to run the command "import stamps; stamps.wiredKno bChanged()" - and this fails. And this knob activates multiple times during a position change. Is there a way to limit this check?

All the best!
 
 
+2 # Adrian Pueyo 2021-12-28 22:17
Hey Matthias, thank you for your feedback! This will be improved for the next version. I hope it won't take long :-)
 
 
0 # Matthias Backmann 2022-05-31 15:27
Hey,

one more thing that happened to one of our artists:
You are able to copy a stamp into a group and this even works for the moment (no idea, how this gets connected). But it breaks the script when you save and reload it. Nodes then get pushed around and into the group. I know that this is really forced, but it can happen that you create a group with some nodes and a stamp is in there. Perhaps there is a way to avoid this by checking if stamp and anchor are on the same "level".

Awesome tool, really Love it
Can you add function for cg passes where instead of postage stamp I can get a shuffle node

Hi!
I can't use the postage stamp show when i add a new nodetype on my workflow.
Can you replace it?
Thanks!I very love it.
