Nuke Indy just won't work....

Hey guys,

My first post here,  really looking forward to getting into Prism for personal projects.  I started at a new studio a few weeks ago and they are using it for some internal stuff and I have really liked it so far.   I have a side project with about 40 shots to do and I thought this would be a nice chance to try Prism for my own work....

Unfortunately,  I can't seem to get my Nuke Indy to work....  I have followed the advice in the other posts about editing the Init.py and Menu.py files and I just can't get it to work.  If I tweak those at all Nuke just won't launch...... Any thoughts would be awesome......

 

Hey @brianvowles

Just for reference, I assume you were following the instructions in this post: https://prism-pipeline.com/forum/topic/nuke-12-2v3-indie-prism-doesnt-start-temporary-fix-found/#postid-3017

If Nuke won't start after editing the file then there is probably a mistake in the formatting of the file. Can you open it in a text editor and post a screenshot here so that I can check if there is a formatting issue?

Hey Richard,

Thanks for getting back to me......  that was the solution I tried but I didn't have any luck.  I tried again just now with fresh eyes but no dice.

Any help would be awesome....

Thanks.

The explanation was probably not very clear on how to remove the indents. You only have to remove one indent per line. If there were more than one in a line, you need to keep them and only remove one of them.

So the menu.py has to look like this:

# >>>PrismStart
import nuke

if "pcore" in locals():
    nuke.message("Prism is loaded multiple times. This can cause unexpected errors. Please clean this file from all Prism related content:\n\n%s\n\nYou can add a new Prism integration through the Prism Settings dialog" % __file__)
else:
    import os
    import sys

    prismRoot = os.getenv("PRISM_ROOT")
    if not prismRoot:
        prismRoot = PRISMROOT

    scriptDir = os.path.join(prismRoot, "Scripts")
    if scriptDir not in sys.path:
        sys.path.append(scriptDir)

    import PrismCore

    pcore = PrismCore.PrismCore(app="Nuke")
# <<<PrismEnd

and the init.py needs to look like this:

# >>>PrismStart
import nuke

if "pcore" in locals():
    nuke.message("Prism is loaded multiple times. This can cause unexpected errors. Please clean this file from all Prism related content:\n\n%s\n\nYou can add a new Prism integration through the Prism Settings dialog" % __file__)
else:
    import os
    import sys

    try:
        from PySide2.QtCore import *
        from PySide2.QtGui import *
        from PySide2.QtWidgets import *
    except:
        from PySide.QtCore import *
        from PySide.QtGui import *

    prismRoot = os.getenv("PRISM_ROOT")
    if not prismRoot:
        prismRoot = PRISMROOT

    scriptDir = os.path.join(prismRoot, "Scripts")
    if scriptDir not in sys.path:
        sys.path.append(scriptDir)

    qapp = QApplication.instance()
    if not qapp:
        qapp = QApplication(sys.argv)

    if isinstance(qapp, QCoreApplication):
        print("a QCoreApplication exists. failed to load Prism")
    else:
        print(qapp)
        import PrismCore

        pcore = PrismCore.PrismCore(app="Nuke", prismArgs=["noUI"])

# <<<PrismEnd

 

Hey Richard,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you,...... I finally had a chance to try the Nuke Indy stuff just now and I still can't get it to work.   I copied and pasted the scripts you sent.   I double checked then reading them line by line......  I dunno..........

.nuke/init.py : error interpreting this plugin

here's a copy of my init.py......  maybe you can see a missed space or soemhtign..........

 

thanks

Hey Brian,

the indentations are correct. In line 20 of the init.py and line 12 of the menu.py you have to replace PRISMROOT with the path to your Prism installation for example like this:

prismRoot = "C:/Prism"

Thanks Richard,

I tried again but still no luck..... I really wish I understood code because now it's just getting embarrassing.   The frustrating thing is that I know it works because I have been using it at work..... and it's awesome.     Is there any chance it's a Mac thing?

I have Prism installed in my Applications folder........ so when I copied the path I got this.....  /Applications/Prism   so I put that into the script where you said to and I still get that init.py error when I try to launch Nuke.   here is another screen grab.......  I'll get it one day.

Hey @brianvowles,

sorry for the late reply. In your init.py you need to add one more indentation to line 20, similar how you did in menu.py.

Hey Richard....

it's been months since I had a chance to try out your suggestion and I finally got to it last night......Success!!     thanks!
