very basic implementation of JefeCheck as the default flipbook
7.0 or later
24 Nov 2012

JefeCheck is an awesome flipbokk app that is now available for free. Check it out here

This script is a very basic implementation that makes JefeCheck appear in Nuke's default flipbook panel. Not all options offered in the panel are supported.
Drop the downloaded file into your plugin path and the following lines into your

os.environ['JC_PATH'] = '/Applications/'
import JefeCheck
nukescripts.setFlipbookDefaultOption("flipbook", "JefeCheck")

The first line will tell the script where to find JefeCheck, so change it according to your system.
The secont line will import and regsiter the JefeCheck flipbook, and the third will make JefeCheck the default option in the flipbook panel (instead of FrameCycler)


This has only been tested on OSX.

Thanks Frank for your grate py
but i have a problem when i want to use this

hm, strange. That's an error that is unrelated to my script as far as I can tell (I just used the template that comes with Nuke and it works fine for me). Can you send this to support and CC me on it to clarify with the Foundry guys please?

Thanks for your reply Frank
This is my mistake . i'm linux user and forget to add "JefeCheck" at the end of JC_PATH
I added this into

os.environ['JC_PATH'] = '/usr/local/JefeCheck_Linux_x86_64/bin/'

then i correct it to:
os.environ['JC_PATH'] = '/usr/local/JefeCheck_Linux_x86_64/bin/jefecheck'

Thanks again
0 # Frank Rueter 2012-11-25 22:50
ah, yes, that would do it. thanks for clarifying

Hi Frank! Daniel from JefeCheck here, thanks a lot for this script! I will take a look at it and try to improve Jefe's command line options to suit what nuke sends it.
0 # Frank Rueter 2012-11-26 13:25
Hi Daniel,

thank you for sharing JefeCheck! I think the most important thing to improve would be the viewer lut, so it comes across from Nuke and things look identical straight away. After that I was going to look into flipping multiple nodes at the same time to load into the four tracks in JefeCheck, but that would mean a complete re-write as the TF template doesn't support that concept. Might be worth it though as I would like the same functionality for RV as well.
0 # Daniel Gollás 2012-11-26 14:26
Right, that would be useful. As of now you can use the -l option, this needs to be the name of the LUT file that had already been loaded or auto-loaded (by using the env var JEFECHECK_LUT_P ATH, a folder where you keep your .lut, .cub or tga files). From nuke we would need to append the .cub or .tga extension to whatever viewer lut was loaded and make sure that the lut filename is the same but that seems simple enough.

Hi Frank!

Thanks for taking the time to put this together, much appreciated. I'm having trouble using it on Windows 7 though. After rendering to the temp folder nuke, instead of launching JefeCheck, says "WindowsError: [Error 5] Access is denied". I have tried disabling the firewall but get the same message. Any thoughts on other things I could try?
0 # Frank Rueter 2013-01-14 12:55
sounds like you set the JC_PATH to the folder where the exe file is rather than the exe file itself?
0 # Mikael Ewald 2013-01-15 06:01
Just checked and like you thought I had simply miswritten the filepath. Works like a charm now, thanks for the pointer!

Hi Frank and Daniel, on my machine the script in nuke works fine, but when JefeCheck starts, it says Frame not loaded. Does anyone knows, why this happens?
