Send to FFmpeg from Nuke Update

Posted on: 6 Comments

Update: sendToAvconv has been depreciated in favourr of mrender

Ubuntu 12.04 has moved to avconv from ffmpeg and my previous python script to execute a shell script on Nuke’s afterRender callback needed to be updated appropriately.

Additional changes:

  • The function now takes an arg ‘dnxhd’ to output a movie using the avid codec instead of the default x264.
  • the renderSlug configuration option has been added
    • when false: the movie start frame = the nuke project start frame*
    • when true: the movie start frame = 0

* Note: You always have to render from frame 0 out of Nuke regardless of the project start frame (avconv image sequences always start at 0).
