Often we receive plates with frame ranges that don’t begin at frame 1. The plates have 48 frame handles but we only need to deliver 8 frame handles. This script will set the selected Read node to start at frame 1 and set the correct handle ranges based on user input.
Saves a few seconds of math.
As an example, the project settings first frame for the settings in the image on the right would be 1 + 48 – 8 (41) and the last frame would 1 + [selected read node's last frame ] - [selected read node's first frame ] - 48 + 8.
- Add setProjectFrameRange.py to your ~/.nuke folder
- In ~/.nuke/menu.py, import setProjectFrameRange
- Add the command to a menu
#Set Project Frame Range
m.addCommand("&Node/Set Project Frame Range From Node", setProjectFrameRange.callPanel, '^R')
You can set the project handle default frame counts (48 and 8 in the image above) in the first portion of the class.
class setProjectFrameRange ( nukescripts.PythonPanel ):
def __init__( self ):
#Set Project Handle Defaults
handlesInHead = 48
handlesInTail = 48
handlesOutHead = 8
handlesOutTail = 8
