Looper allows you to create seamless loops of playing clips.

Why is it helpful in production?

Looping is not only a useful way to lengthen clips that are too short to be used in a comp but it is also a great way to save rendering time since only a specific frame range needs to be rendered.

Main Features:

Looper has two looping methods: Dissolve and Morph

Dissolve: Uses a simple Dissolve node to dissolve the input clip between an offset version of the same clip. The offset amount is determined by the number of frames looped. Works great when looping clips with constant/similar motion like rain or snow stock footage.

Morph: Similar to the Dissolve method but instead uses a Kronos node to generate a morphed loop. 

 

Updates:

v1.2: 

The internal loop process has been slightly modified to make it more efficient and easier to understand.
Added a 'Blend Length' slider that shortens the transition time which can be useful for longer loops.
Added another dynamic text that indicates input's frame range used by the loop.

 

 

How to install:
 
- Place the “Damian_Binder” folder inside your .nuke folder.
 
- Add this to your init.py file located in your .nuke folder:
 
# DAMIAN BINDER TOOLS
nuke.pluginAddPath('./Damian_Binder')
nuke.pluginAddPath('./Damian_Binder/Looper')
 
 
- Add this to your menu.py file also located in your .nuke folder:
 
# DAMIAN BINDER TOOLS
toolbar = nuke.toolbar('Nodes')
m = toolbar.addMenu('DamianBinder', icon='DamianBinderNukeLogo.png')
m.addCommand('Looper', 'nuke.createNode(\'Looper\')', icon='Looper_Icon.png')
 
 
*** If you don't have init.py and menu.py files inside your .nuke folder, use the ones provided.
 
*** If the folder “Damian_Binder” already exists in your .nuke folder (because of already installed tools by Damian Binder like HeatWave or DefocusPlus for example), move the 'Looper' folder (located inside the downloaded “Damian_Binder” folder) to the already installed “Damian_Binder” folder.
