The Terror VFX Breakdown by UPP

It was an exciting project.
I gained a lot of knowledge about keying, color correction, retouch, 2D-3D element integration, 2D-3D tracking, continuity and so on.
Big work, Kryptonian team!

  # Python      

This is a simple node disable tool, it's useful if you have a lot of VectorBlur in your graph :).
# get type of selected node
# print(nuke.selectedNode().Class())

def node_disabling(n_s_mode, n_class, switcher=False): """Simple node disabler. Parameters
 n_s_mode: str
all -- search in all nodes sn -- search in selected nodes n_class: str
node class switcher: boolean
False or 0 -- node enabled True or 1 -- node disabled

None """
n_s = {n_s_mode == 'all': nuke.allNodes(), n_s_mode == 'sn': nuke.selectedNodes()}.get(True, 0)
for i in n_s: if i.Class() == '{0}'.format(n_class): i.knob('disable').setValue(switcher) del n_s
# example: #node_disabling('all', 'Grade', 0)

  # Python       

Small code snippet for hotkey setup, extend hotkeys nested list with new items,  usage:
['Draw/Grain',           'Grain2',                  'Alt+I']
⇑ ⇑
Path/to/node Node class, Hotkey
          and default values (optional)

# insert code snippet to
menu ='Nodes') hotkeys = [ ['Filter/Blur', 'Blur, size 20 label "hello world"', 'B'], ['Draw/LightWrap', 'LightWrap', 'L'], ['Draw/Grain', 'Grain2', 'Alt+I']
# ... your hotkeys
def assign_hotkey(n_path, c_node, h_key):
"""Batch hotkey assignment.

n_path: str
the node path in the menu
c_node: str

c_node_splitted = c_node.split(',') menu.addCommand(n_path, lambda: nuke.createNode(*c_node_splitted), h_key)
n_path_i = 0 c_node_i = 1 h_key_i = 2 for i in hotkeys: assign_hotkey(i[n_path_i], i[c_node_i], i[h_key_i])
