Nuke .fxs (Silhouette Shape format) exporter.

This script will export Nuke shapes to a Silhouette Roto and Paint shape format .fxs file.
That allows a Mocha to Silhouette shape export using Nuke.

SUPPORTED FEATURES:

Version 2.0: initial release Aug 5th 2013

This version introduces Shapes and Layers transforms exports: meaning "tracking data (point/cpin)" export and avoiding baking the keyframes everywhere.

  • Shape Position/Animation
  • Shape Opacity (Linear/Constant keyframes)
  • Shape Motion Blur
  • Shape Overlay Color
  • Shape Blending Modes
  • Shape Inverted attribute
  • Shape Open/Closed
  • Delete repeated baked keyframes when possible
  • Layer/Shape Transforms (all transforms, including "extra matrix")
  • Layer nesting

COMPATIBILITY

Nukev7 and up

KNOW LIMITATIONS

  • Nuke animation curves are more complex than Silhouette ones, that will result in more keyframes depending on the keyframe interpolation
  • B-spline Tension not supported yet
  • Feather not supported
  • Rectangles are exported incorrectly (swapped tangents). > Workaround: smooth and cusp the points back, it will fix the tangents.
  • For heavy scenes, the script might take a while to give the task feedback, be patient.

USAGE

Select the Roto or Rotopaint node and run the script from the Script Editor. You can set a the default folder/file path on init.py or menu.py with the code below:

os.environ['FXSEXPORTPATH'] = '/path/to/your/fxsfile.fxs'

Optionally you can use the provided "menu.py" file to get a Toolbar item with the script.

BUG REPORT

Send me (contact info at http://boundaryvfx.com/tools) the Nuke Console error message and your Roto/Rotopaint node for troubleshooting.

Thanks

Kudos to the Silhouette team: Paul Miller and Perry Kivolowitz that helped me with important info.
