snapShot.py


SnapShot:

snapShot render your current frame result (which ever your seeing your viewer) as a .jpg file and re-load it automatically. Its using your script name, version and your current node   ( means selected node) name.









snapShot.py create a directory called "snapShot"
on your nuke working directory and stores the snapShots into that DIR.























you can modify the snapShots destination DIR and file type as per your need.
  
( I really thank to Nicolas Houle and Frank Rueter for help me out to make this work )

Updated with new icon and custom input gizmo. Place the image gizmo, icon and snapShot.py on your custom nuke DIR. Replace menu.py line to make it work.
