Getting Started

To get started with nukeuuid, type in the Nuke Script Editor:

import nukeuuid

Define a dictionary of UUIDs to be set, with the keys defining the UUID name and the values defining the UUID values.

kw = {'': 'fca7201e-b53d-4918-9ab0-bb4ec5590f3c',
      'utility': '5f2d525d-3e00-4bc5-88c4-794ad87f5699'}

To create and set the UUID attributes on a node (or a list of nodes), type:

nukeuuid.set(node, **kw)

To retrieve all nodes matching a specific UUID pattern, type:

kw = {'': 'fca7201e-b53d-4918-9ab0-bb4ec5590f3c',
      'utility': '5f2d525d-3e00-4bc5-88c4-794ad87f5699'}
matched_nodes = nukeuuid.get_nodes(**kw)
