What does it do:
This will take every Gizmo in a directory and all sub-directories and set them up for use in nuke.
This includes making them available for Tab dropping into your node editor as well as setting up a convenient toolbar menu filled with all of your custom gizmo's arranged into a deep menu and sub menu structure mirroring the folder's they were found in.
One top level menu is created for each extra user defined search directory.
How to use it:
Your gizmo directory will automatically be loaded into your toolbar whenever you launch Nuke.
You can also add extra directories to search through. These are added to the toolbar separately.
Open the script and find the "gizmo_directory_list" variable at the bottom. You can then list extra directories like this:
gizmo_directory_list = ["/home/travisharvey/.nuke/yokai_tools/yokai_gizmos",
Copy the contents of the provide "dotnuke" folder to your local ".nuke" directory.
If you already have a "menu.py", simply append the contents of the provided one to your own.
Dump all of your gizmo's into the file named "gizmos". If for any reason it does not exist, it will be created when nuke is next run.
Sub Menu's are now supported!
- Now every folder in your gizmo directory(s) will be added as sub menu's containing their own scripts and sub-sub menu's.
- You can also now add a list of extra directories to search for your gizmo's.
- Each extra directory will get it's own toolbar icon.
- Fully restructured into a Class for efficiency.
- The automatically generated labels will now be Capitalised.
