Lets you manage all your backdrops in real-time with just one panel.

It lists the backdrops by their labels, if the backdrop is blank it shows its name instead.

You can list the backdrops selected or all the Backdrops in the script.

Everything updates depending on which backdrop is selected in the list.


Add the script to your .nuke folder and the following to your file then Backdrop Manager will appear in your panel menu.


import BackdropManager
from BackdropManager import addBackdropManager

paneMenu = 'Pane' )
paneMenu.addCommand( 'Backdrop Manager', addBackdropManager )
nukescripts.registerPanel( 'com.ohufx.Backdrop', addBackdropManager )

Hey Matt

Are you sure you are looking in the right place for it?

Right click next to the Properties Panel in Nuke.

Then look for Pane in that list and it should be in there.

Just a small observation: in the code posted in your description the last three lines have each one an extra opening parenthesis.

Thanks for sharing!
