Nuke executeNodes within a group
« on: August 15, 2012, 05:09:11 PM »
I'm trying to render a write node within a group but I can't get the syntax right. As there are other write nodes I want to use the executeNodes command but it can't find the node in the group.

The group is called 'Group1' and the node in it is called 'dpx'. Any ideas?

Cheers,
Dave.

A quick follow up. In Qube I get the error:

nothing is named "dpx"
ERROR: exit status: 1

The write node is called dpx.

ok, feel a bit silly but if anyone wants to know the solution, the syntax is just simply: Group1.dpx. Or in our case, just change the name of the group to the name of the Gizmo. not sure if it's a Nuke or Qube syntax but it works.

Thanks for sorting this out; it's Nuke-specific syntax.
