Element Importer

this is still work in progress.

I always find it interesting how different companies bringing their elements into nuke. I gave it a go and build my own little element library with importer for nuke. but this one could be easily modified to import these things into other packages.

As a backend i defined a small MongoDB which holds all the path, frameranges, resoultions, fileformats, eventually proxies and so on.
The frontend is as usual PySide with preview sequences for the different elements.
current options are:

  • add elements to a shopping cart
  • preview shoppingcart proxies via vlc player. vlc is just a solution for the private version
  • import the cart into nuke
  • search for tags
