This is a Lite Version because on Nukepedia you can't upload files too big. You will find the complete Collection here

COMPLETE TUTORIAL and VERSION: http://www.andreageremia.it/tutorial_particles_collection.html

I started collecting scripts about the Particles for Nuke because every time I didn't want to start from scratch my script. So, slowly slowly, with all the tutorials on YouTube/Vimeo, scripts and gizmos on Nukepedia and on the TheFroundry website, I have arrived to this Collection.

I've tried to report all the references and links where I took the scripts. If you don't want to be in this Collection, please text me. In other way, if you have something to suggest, please send me the script and I will add it to the next update!

So, if you are wondering the reason of the Lego Background, I have to say that with Particles you can even model Lego pieces!!

I also would like to say THANK YOU to all the artists that shared their templates and to the comp team of Trixter for the incredible workshops about the Particles, in particular to Alexey Kuchinski.


+ v 1.0: Compatible with Nuke 13


The collection is divided in 7 sections. Here you will find how to set up Particles for snow, sparks and embers, bouncing surfaces, bugs, fog or dust in the air:

 1. ANIMALS

 2. EXPRESSION and BLINKSCRIPT

 3. MODELLING

 4. PYRO and SPARKS

 5. UTILITIES

 6. VARIOUS SETUP

 7. WEATHER

 HOW TO INSTALL IT?

It's really easy to install the package, because all the paths and folders are already created.

1. Unzip the archive
2. Drag and drop the folder in your .nuke folder or wherever you prefer
#in your .nuke folder, path would be something like this:

#Linux: /home/login name/.nuke
#Mac OS X: /Users/login name/.nuke
#Windows: C:\Users\user name\.nuke

3. Add this code to your file init.py (if you don’t have it, create one) and modify the path (do not change the file init.py in the folder Particles). Don't add any space at the beginning. 

Don't delete the letter 'r' before the path

  
  nuke.pluginAddPath(r'/Users/yourPath/.nuke/ParticlesCollection')

4. Run Nuke


 BE CAREFUL!

This Collection works perfectly with Nuke 12 and 13. Be careful and always double check in the node ParticleEmitter the knob 'start at' and 'emission rate'. Maybe they are setted up on different frames

File "C:/Users/Admin istrator/.nuke/ init.py", line 1
nuke.pluginAddP ath(r'/C:/Users /Administrator/ .nuke/Particles Collection')
^
IndentationError: unexpected indent

Hello Shakil,

indentation is the space that you have before every line. It's useful in Python not just to get your code organised, but also to create different structures. I tested my Collection, download it from Nukepedia and it worked.

So, just be carefur that you don't have any kind of space before your line:

nuke.pluginAddP ath(r'/C:/Users /Administrator/ .nuke/Particles Collection')

In case your error will appear again, just delete completely the line from your file init.py and write again from scratch.

Plus, double check your path because I guess you should delete the / that you have before the C:/

Cheers man!

As I said on top of this article, Nukepedia doesn't allow me to upload big files, so this is just a Lite version.
If you want the complete package, then download it from my website: http://www.andreageremia.it/tutorial_particles_collection.html

That's the full version with all the footage and examples available :lol:

that site was not accessable. Could you give us other link to download?

Sorry, but the website is online and does work
Maybe it's not accessible from your country.

Here there is the direct link for the Complete package: http://www.andreageremia.it/download/tutorial/particles/ParticlesCollection_forNuke_v01.zip
