Q100195: How to customise Nuke script exports from NukeStudio/Hiero

Follow

SUMMARY

It is not currently possible to change the nodes exported by default from NukeStudio/Hiero, when exporting a Nuke script using the 'Export..' option or creating the Nuke script via 'Create Comp' or 'Create Comp Special...'. 

 

MORE INFORMATION

At export time, the nodes that get added to the Nuke script are created via the hiero.core.nuke.ScriptWriter class. To manually change the default nodes you can override this class and customize the node knobs as required.

Below you can find an example illustrating how to customize the Read node knobs.

 

The script works by:

1) Inheriting the original hiero.core.nuke.ScriptWriter class

2) Subclassing the addNode() method so that it calls the onNodeAdded() for each node

3) Defining the onNodeAdded() method.
This method defines what changes to apply to which nodes and can be edited to customize the required node settings.

4) Overriding the original ScriptWriter with the edited version.

 

To use the edited version you have to save the Python script to .nuke/Python/Startup. Information about finding your .nuke directory can be found here: Q100048: Nuke Directory Locations

If the Python and Startup directories do not already exist in your .nuke directory, then you will need to create them manually.

 

 

The Python script can be downloaded from the link below.
