Q100276: Expanded functionality in the NukeStudio Media Spreadsheet

Follow

SUMMARY

This article aims to highlight a custom script that may prove of use if you are looking to incorporate additional functionality to the NukeStudio/Hiero Media Spreadsheet. Please note that while useful, the script is unsupported, and as such we will not be able to assist with any functionality questions or issues caused by the script's interaction with NukeStudio/Hiero.
 
 
MORE INFORMATION
The Media Spreadsheet functionality in NukeStudio/Hiero provides an easy to read display of all events in a sequence, including status, the track it resides on, length, and the source file location.  
 
If you are looking to expand this functionality further and include new features to the spreadsheet, such as the ability to see assigned/tagged artists, see a thumbnail of the clip, add notes to clips etc, then there is a custom Python script that is available on Nukepedia that provides this functionality.
 
The script was originally written by one of our developers to work with Hiero 1.7v2 or later and is available for download at: http://www.nukepedia.com/hiero/python/pimp-my-spreadsheet

The script adds Custom Spreadsheet columns for the following fields for your shots:

Tags
Notes
FileType
Thumbnail
MediaType
Width
Height
Pixel Aspect
Colourspace (settable from Spreadsheet)
Shot Status (settable from Spreadsheet and right-click menu)
Artist (assinable from Spreadsheet and right-click menu)
Department (linked to the artist assigned)

Please be aware that this script requires Hiero 1.7v2 or later and in order to get it working in the latest releases of NukeStudio/Hiero (i.e. NukeStudio 10.5v2 is out at the time of writing), you will need to copy the Python script to the following directory, as opposed to the one mentioned in the description of the script on Nukepedia: ~/.nuke/Python/StartupUI

NOTE: This is an unsupported script and if you encounter any issues with it, we will be unable to offer guidance on fixing the script functionality. To identify whether the issue you're seeing is a script related problem or a specific NukeStudio/Hiero issue, we recommend that you test in safe mode following this article's instructions: Q100038: Launching Nuke/NukeX/NukeStudio/Hiero in safe mode
