Installation FAQ

What is the simplest way to install KeenTools?

The simplest way to install KeenTools is to run the installer.

What exactly does the installer do?

The installer copies KeenTools files to Nuke plugins directory:
• OSX: /Library/Application Support/NUKE/x.x/plugins/
• Linux: /usr/local/NUKE/x.x/plugins/
• Windows: C:\Program Files\Common Files\NUKE\x.x\plugins\
where x.x is Nuke version (10.5 for example).

I’ve installed KeenTools but I can’t see it in Nuke. What should I do?

You should check you’ve installed the correct KeenTools bundle (i. e. OS and Nuke versions match yours). If versions match and you can’t see KeenTools in Nuke try to perform manual installation.

How to uninstall KeenTools?

Is it possible to use KeenTools with NUKE Non-commercial?

No, Non-commercial version doesn’t support third-party plug-ins.

What is ‘manual’ directory for?

‘manual’ directory is only for performing manual installation. It isn’t required if you’re using the installer (i. e. you can only share the installer if it suits your needs).

How can I perform manual installation

• copy KeenTools folder from ‘manual’ directory to any place you want
• add the path to KeenTools folder to Nuke path by adding nuke.pluginAddPath('PATH_TO_KEENTOOLS') to init.py file.

How can I perform manual installation working for multiple Nuke versions and operating systems?

• copy KeenTools folders from ‘manual’ directories for every Nuke version and operating system you want to any place you want;
• add the path to all that folders to Nuke path.
For example if you want to work with different versions of Nuke on Windows you may:
• unpack WIN_KEEN_TOOLS.zip to C:/KeenTools (could be any directory);
• write the next lines to %HOMEPATH%/.nuke/init.py:
nuke.pluginAddPath('C:/KeenTools/NUKE8.0/manual/KeenTools')
nuke.pluginAddPath('C:/KeenTools/NUKE9.0/manual/KeenTools')
nuke.pluginAddPath('C:/KeenTools/NUKE10.0/manual/KeenTools')
nuke.pluginAddPath('C:/KeenTools/NUKE10.5/manual/KeenTools')
KeenTools will automatically choose which installation should be loaded.

What will happen if I install KeenTools for different Nuke version or OS?

KeenTools won’t be loaded and an error message will be written to Nuke console.
