Not working on Linux - you need to pass 'shell=True' argument in subprocess call if you want it to work properly.

Apparently "shell = true" can be security hazard.
I don't work on Linux but if you can give some feed back I'll certainly work in on =)

If you unchek 'Selected Node Only' it doesn't work for multi write node ?
0 # Thomas Vu 2017-03-03 03:49

I publish a new version 1.2 it fix the issue for multi write.

I did a test and it works in my side, I'll appreciate if you can confirme it work in your side too :)

for the render all write node (uncheck selected node) its working now, thank you!
hopefully in next version you will add few more fuction like:
force create folder, and multi selection write note only (ex: render 3 of 5 write node)

I work on a process to create folder !

For render multi write node you can do it with this version. Just disables the writes node you don't want to be render and uncheck the option 'Selected node only' !

Hi Serhat,

Many thanks for writing and uploading this script!
Unfortunatly, when pressing the render button, i can see the render window start and immediatly shut down without an error message in the nuke log window. I'm using Nuke 10.0v3 and rendering stereo. Any idea what could be going wrong?

Also i had to change

import renderMultiFrame
import renderMultiFrame1v2

Kind regards,

Hi Anthony,

Indeed I totally forget to update the import line !

Might you fix it ? i dont know why i can not render by your script (normal still working fine), there is no gizmo node, only built-in node
0 # Serhat Baykal 2017-07-29 16:54
Hi, can you show me the output on the script editor ?

This happens to me when I let my script in proxy mode before launch the script !
0 # Thomas Vu 2017-08-02 06:37

Please bump for nuke 13### :oops:

For Nuke13+ users, if this doesn't work for you I may have found a solution.
In the renderMultiFram, line 91:

print cmd

Thanks to Python 3, that won't work anymore. But have no fear, just change it to:


See if that works. I don't quite remember doing that myself but now it seems to work for me on Nuke 13.2v5
