19 Mar 2018

Update 1.3:

Added support for Linux.


Update 1.1:

Removed ParticleCache from the list of executable.


Here's a script I wrote that execute an executable node (available node class shown below) with a command prompt terminal on Windows instead of executing while you're working on the script. As you can imagine, I wrote this because I find not all the executable nodes can be execute as a background process. And that's basically what this script does. I found a few similar scripts that does similar function but mostly to write nodes only, and none of them have the simplicity I have in mind.

Here's the key features:

  • It can execute 'Write', 'DeepWrite', 'WriteGeo', 'WriteTank', 'SmartVector'
  • Assigned 'F6' as shortcut key.
  • Will execute selected node (not nodes!)
  • First and last frames default to global.
  • Dropdown menu that detects how many cores/threads you have and let you limit how much it utilizes.
  • Checkbox to save a new version of the script when it's executed.
  • Checkbox for it to use NukeX license if necessary
  • Close current Nuke interface when execute.

CMDexecute interface


To install this put the file in your desired plugin folder and add line below to your

import cmdExecute

 It is included in the script to add 'Execute using Command Prompt' in Render menu with a shortcut key 'F6'.

Hi there, sorry for late reply I just realize I don't get email notification when there's a new comment.

So assuming you're running it with ParticleCache node, when I tested it back in nuke version 10 it seemed like it's working. But now after a bit of test it appears that it is only reading the files, not writing them. Which is sad :/

Thanks for bringing this up! I'm removing particlecache from the available nodes in the next version.
