- Copy the text in the and the files to your version.

If you don't know what I'm talking about then go to your .nuke folder and put the files there.
.nuke folder can be found here:
Windows: C:\Users\your-username\.nuke
OSX: /Users/your-username/.nuke

The Tools:


vidTOdpx / vidTOexr / seqTOexr

* Scripts for batch converting and writing files in nuke.

- Automaticlly  takes file names from input read nodes and crates sub-folders.

- Path for write nodes defaults to where your script is saved, or you can manually set it.
- Easily specify padding.
- Choose your write settings for the batch.
- Option to limit each write's frame range to the input read node.



* Shuffles all layers from selected nodes and puts a write node with the layers name ready to be rendered.



* Creates a write node on a selected node in your tree.

- Path for write node defaults to where your script is saved, or you can manually set it.
- An option to name the file based on your script or as specified from the user.



rootAutocrop / readAutocrop

* Uses the nukescripts.autocrop

- rootAutocrop: Animates a bounding box on the selected nodes for the project's root frame range.
- readAutocrop: Animated a bounding box on the seleced Read nodes based on their frame range. ( Handy for quickly batch cropping files with different frame ranges)


readReload / geoReload

* Reloads all Read/Geo nodes in the script.


* Enables/Disables all MotionBlur2D, MotionBlur3D, and VectorBlur nodes in the script.


* Takes the selected camera and creates duplicate camera either expression linked or just copied values.

- Has a Projection Frame tab to easily change the frame you want to project from. (Defaults to current frame).



setValue / setExpression

* Change Knob values or set expressions on selected nodes.

For some reason the VidtoEXR puts each individual file in it's own folder, I don't want this to create it's own folder for each exr, I just want them all in my one folder. How do I fix this?

Hi, yes the it's build to that so that you can separate different write nodes or image sequences to their own folders. I'm away on holiday now so when I get back I'll modify it so you can have the option to disable sub folders.

Thanks a ton man, I just have one last recommendation. I'm mainly using this for exporting single images. for now. I noticed my naming convention goes from.


I was wondering if you know of a way to change this, so it doesn't keep the original files .jpg .tiff .png etc at the end?

Oh, these where actually made for image sequences but your right it should support any need.

Your shuffleNwrite does create shuffles and writes from the node selected, however, it adds a write to every "already existing" shuffle in the script. Is that by choice, or is that a bug?

I'd love for it to only create writes off the shuffles your script creates.
