Submitting jobs from Nuke
« on: August 15, 2012, 05:38:10 PM »
Hi there:

I am trying to figure out how does Nuke menu gets create to submit renders on the farm. I looked around and found that there is a function call install() in nuke_cmdline.py which create a qube_menu.py in the home directory. Now I don't when does this function gets called and where in Nuke its mentioned to load this file in order create the Qube submission menu ..?

Thanks

The install() method in the simplecmd gets called when a user goes to File > Install AppUI (from Qube).  The install method is different for every app from which we provide in-app submission systems.  For nuke, it dumps a python script into ~/.nuke/qubemenu.py.  Nuke sources files in this path as part of its normal operation & in doing so, creates a pull-down menu in its own UI.

Hello Brain:
Thanks for the info. But there is something weird going on here - even though I don't have any files in ~/.nuke directory, I still have menu showing up in Nuke ..?

thanks

Click on the File > Install AppUI > Install 'Nuke (cmdline)' AppUI & watch the log pane.  That will show you were the file is being placed.
