Menue entry for showing all backups of the script including directly loading, previewing and deleting it. When you save your script a screenshot is also saved besides your script to better visualize which stage of work you where when you saved your script. This results in faster locating the desired backup if you need one.



Blackbox is a Python plugin which automatically creates backups of your current nuke scripts. Whenever you save a script a backup is saved in a backup folder. This is according to the setting on the same level of your current nuke script or in a global place for all Nuke scripts. The number of backups can be set arbitrarily. In a nutshell, with this plugin you can always jump back to older versions and nothing gets lost.
