flop flip in nuke

flopFlip.py

Nuke doesn't have this small and very handy utility built-in. For doing this function in nuke we need to use "VIEWER_INPUT" method (or) add mirror node and connect it with a (any) node, then constantly check and un-check the Horizontal or vertical knob. Finally you have to delete the mirror node.

flopFlip script dosen't need above step 's. Just press ctrl+F for flop, ctrl+shift+F for flip.

Before:



 After:




flopFlip will help you to flop & flip your current viewer result. I use to do this for checking my final comps and review my shots. Playback software's like RV, frame-cycler and other tools have this handy function.

Hope this will help you friends.
