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 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.

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).

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.

We hope you'll find it useful. Feedback, bugs and ideas always appreciated.

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 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.
# 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?
# 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?
# Casey Yahnke 2021-03-04 01:12
Yeah I was wondering the same thing.
# 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.
# Anton Sergeev 2021-03-20 13:17
Awesome job Adrian/Alexey, thanks for sharing! But Stamps does not work in Nuke 13. Please correct this error. Thanks!))

this tool is just awesome. I cannot leave without stamps anymore. Do you think we will have an update with nuke 13 soon? thanks
