based on the Foundry's Autobackdrop.py with a nuke panel asking for the label and the name of your autobackdrop, with 4 colors presets and 4 different font size. the Default color is grey.
Requirements:

You can add this line to your menu.py:

menuToolbar = nuke.toolbar('Nodes')
geoffToolbar = menuToolbar.addMenu('GeoffTools')

geoffToolbar.addCommand('Shortcut/Backdrop', 'autobackdrop.autoBackdrop()', 'Alt+m')

'Alt+m' is the hotkey I chose for this script, feel free to change if you want.

Enjoy ;-)

hi Geoffroy i tried using your script and i get an error:

"name 'autoBackdrop' is not defined"

I have no knowledge of python so i can't really troubleshoot it myself sorry.

I'm using nuke 6.2v2 x64.

best regards

Hi Romain,
You can copy this code to your menu.py and copy the labelAutobackdr op.py in the same folder (it should be: ~/.nuke):

import labelAutobackdrop

menuToolbar = nuke.toolbar('Nodes')
geoffToolbar = menuToolbar.addMenu('GeoffTools')

geoffToolbar.addCommand('Shortcut/Backdrop', 'labelAutobackd rop.autoBackdro p()', 'Alt+m').

Sorry for the confusion Romain, it was the wrong code for the menu.py... Hope you will enjoy it!
Geoffroy.

Hi Geoffroy,

thank you for your answer. I just tried your script and i find it very usefull, I think it improves greatly the use of the backdrop node making it easy to color/name it without those annoying extra clicks that are otherwise required.

Romain
