All KeenTools plugins are bundled into a single installer. Inside the bundle you’ll find an automatic installer as well as files for manual installation. Please read the installation FAQ for more details.
License Server is needed for installing floating licenses only. Version of the license server have to be equal or greater than the version of the bundle. It’s available for all platforms:
The simplest way to install KeenTools is to run the installer.
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).
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.
Remove KeenTools folder from Nuke plugins directory to uninstall KeenTools.
No, Non-commercial version doesn’t support third-party plug-ins.
‘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).
• 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.
• 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:
KeenTools will automatically choose which installation should be loaded.
KeenTools won’t be loaded and an error message will be written to Nuke console.
Making changes in KeenTools installation may break it’s operability.
You can find menu.py file in KeenTools directory and edit it as you see fit.
