A set of defaults for Fusion 8+ that makes transitioning from Nuke easier. Includes familiar Layouts from Nuke, a set of symlinked names/nodes for Nuke that creates Fusion equavalent nodes and hotkeys to mimic Nuke's default.

A work in progress, the community can help expand if needed.


The Layouts are inspired by the default workspaces in Nuke8+. The following layouts have been made :

  • Animation
  • Compositing
  • Floating
  • Large Node Graph
  • Large Viewer
  • Scripting

The layouts are stored in the Layout/ folder.

Macros (gizmos)

  • Nuke names to Fusion nodes are provided, but upon creation they change to the Fusion equavalent for future reference.
  • Includes a few small snippets of nodes to showcase similar functionality (Position2Points, Reconcile3d etc)
  • All accessible as Nuke names by pressing TAB and writing the name of the nodes.

The macros are stored in the macros/nuke2fusion/ folder.


A set of default hotkeys for creating nodes, toggling view controls on/off, disabling nodes and more. With a small addition of using capital letters to indicate 3d nodes.

  • Tab for node search with wildcard (moved from shift-space)
  • Lower case letters for 2d nodes (m)erge, (w)rite, (r)ead, (b)lur etc..
  • Upper case letters for 3d nodes (M)erge3d, (R)enderer3d, (T)ransform3d etc..
  • (d) for disable/passthrough node
  • (q) (while focused on the viewer) disables/enables on-screen controls
  • (m)erge and (M)erge3D automatically tries to connect to selected nodes
  • (k) will try to connect selected node to closest node output. Aka kiss.
  • (.) inserts a elbow/dot node.

The hotkeys can be configured and edited under the Config/fusion.fu file.


Clone or copy the folders into your userprefs folder.

If you havent set your userprefs yet, you can point to a place to store Fusion data pr.user

  • open Fusion
  • File preferences
  • Path map
  • Select "UserPaths" and point it to your downloaded nuke2fusion folder.


Fusion is very flexible, make sure you checkout all your options in the Preferences.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
