Zync Plugin for Nuke
Tested with all versions of Nuke 7 and 8.
This plugin depends on zync-python, the Zync Python API.
Before trying to install zync-nuke, make sure to download zync-python and follow the setup instructions there.
Note that the simplest and recommended way to install Zync plugins is through the Zync Client Application (see instructions). The steps described below are for advanced users and we recommend to proceed with them only if you need to modify the plugin code for your custom needs.
Clone the Repository
Clone this repository to the desired location on your local system. If you're doing a site-wide plugin install, this will have to be a location accessible by everyone using the plugins.
Contained in this folder you'll find a file called
config_nuke.py.example. Make a copy of this file in the same directory, and rename it
config_nuke.py in a Text Editor. It defines one config variable -
API_DIR - the full path to your zync-python directory.
API_DIR to point to the zync-python you installed earlier, save the file, and close it.
Set Up menu.py
You'll need to locate your .nuke folder, usually stored within your HOME folder. In there you'll need a file called menu.py. This file may already exist.
menu.py should contain the following text:
import nuke nuke.pluginAddPath('/path/to/zync-nuke') import zync_nuke menubar = nuke.menu('Nuke'); menu = menubar.addMenu('&Render') menu.addCommand('Render on Zync', 'zync_nuke.submit_dialog()')
This will add an item to the "Render" menu in Zync that will allow you to launch Zync jobs.
That's it! Restart Nuke to pull in the changes you made.
