mtCollect Utilities

Collect Utilities are a group of tools that helps you to create backups and manage your files. 

CF v031








  • NEW UI
  • Now you can copy DeepReads
  • Now you can copy reads or other files inside Groups
  • Now you can copy image sequences with padding from 1 to 8
  • Solve problems with 0 in front of the padding. Example: padding of 4 #### like that '0450' was read as '450', now the problem is solved.
  • Solve problems while trying to copy files with exactly the same name but with different paths [Why would you do that :( ]
  • Other bugs and adjustments


Please, read the 'readMe_HOW_TO_INSTALL' inside the folder to avoid any problems running the v03.

I will drop a User Guide Here in the following days...maybe weeks.


In theory, it should work also on Mac and Linux, but I've been only able to test it in Windows with nuke 12.0 and above. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Please login in order to download these files.

what does this mean? - Share Nodes (ctrl+shift+g): Share a group of nodes in a shared folder.
0 # Miguel Torija 2021-10-08 08:47
Hi, sorry for the late reply. It will automate the process of sharing and getting nodes between teammattes. Ex: I export a template using Share Nodes to the default folder and allmy teammattes could find and import that group of nodes with just that shortcut.

What does Read Care do? - Read Care [New] (ctrl+ alt+r): Automates useful actions simultaneously in different Reads.

Again, sorry for the late reply. It helps you to change the color space, range, etc to a bunch of reads at the same time.

Hello !
There is a lot of problems with file padding
0 # Miguel Torija 2021-10-20 15:04
Hi, I was working in a big update adding the option of copying the reads inside groups, DeepReads and updating the UI. But I will try to make a soft update solving some known problems before that.

Which problem do you have with the padding? I will take a look and try to fix it in the new version.

Thanks for your feedback!

Thx for your response.
When you have files with "myfile.####.ex r" with starting at 850 to 900 for example .... from "myfile.0850.ex r" to "myfile.0900.ex r", your script is searching for "myfile.850.exr " and it create a folder named "myfile.".

Thx for your help.

Hello! I've replicated your example and had the same issue. I know how to fix it, during this week I would try to update the script with the correction.

If I by pass that .py, Nuke open but the Collect Files doesn't work
+1 # Miguel Torija 2021-12-19 23:18
Yep, sorry, now it should be fixed. For some reason on my computer it was working perfectly. I just uploaded version 3.1 fixing that particular error. Anyway, I will check it tomorrow properly to avoid any further issues. Thanks!

Still not working Miguel the
But if I bypass that py, it works now.

Updated v3_2 and tested inside windows Nuke 12.2 and Nuke 13.0 with a fresh install, so should be working perfectly now. There were some indentation mistakes along with the script, my bad :/

Hey man, thanks for this, it looks great but I get an error :(

Anytime I try to "Collect Files", I get a little error window, "Unable to open/read ui device". I tried Nuke 13.1 as well as 12.2, I'm on macOS :o

+1 # Miguel Torija 2021-12-22 10:16
Hi Lucas, I haven't been able to check it inside MacOs or Linux, but the UI path should be working fine on any system. Please check the "Readme" for the installing instructions. You will need to change the path of "dotNukeFolder" inside the I have inside the collectFiles folder. Also, check that you have the following folders inside your .nuke (.nuke\CollectUtilities_v3\CollectUtilities_v03_scripts\ui)

If you still have problems, please reach me out through LinkedIn and I will try to help you :)

Hi Miguel,

thanks for the swift reply! Of course I read the (very excellent, btw) manual how to install, and that worked fine. No errors on loadup, the new Menu including Icon is there. I just get this very specific error window, this one:

So it's a specific error that I don't understand, haha

I'm only in office for today and tomorrow, then I'm on break till mid january. If it was Ok, I'd contact you when I get back :)

0 # Miguel Torija 2021-12-22 22:42
Yep, it appears to be a problem with the path on MacOs, but I don't know exactly which one... I have to check with MacOs that all the paths and functionalities are working correctly on that system.

In the meantime, I will drop on these url ( a new that you can try to see if it works better.

Its essentially the same, but using directly the full path

Happy holidays!
