v1.5 makes it compatible with Python 3 (nuke 13+)
v1.4 fixes some errors on Nuke v8 and handles multiple read nodes pointing to the same file (check version log inside file for more details)

This script will find the missing external files of your script and relink them (All nodes with ERROR from missing files)

How to use it and further automation (with english subtitles):

Its was inspired by the work of my friend Dubi, (, with the following improvements:

01. All Nodes that own a file property will be searched (Read, ReadGeo.... any node with a 'file' input)
02. Speed improvements, if you want you can start from the disk root folder without problems.
03. Added a progress bar, users can Cancel the task at anytime if its taking too long


Source and run the script in the script editor or add it to a menu. By default even the Write nodes will be considered, if you do not want to change Write Nodes, run the script with a False argument: 


bvfx_findPath() # normal use
bvfx_findPath(False) # this one excludes the Write nodes

 To add it to a menu, place this on your

from bvfx_findPath import *
toolbar ='Nodes')
bvfxt = toolbar.addMenu('BoundaryVFX Tools')
bvfxt.addCommand('Locate files paths', 'bvfx_findPath(False)')

Sweet! Just used this on a project with about 20 read nodes that were all linked to a server at another facility. Worked perfectly :-)
