LabelFromRead and ContactSheetAuto

LabelFromRead is a simple gizmo that displays the end of the file path from the top most read as a text overlay over the top of frame.
Useful for when you want to quickly display the filename when you are overviewing shots or sequences with a contact sheet and want to see what is what.

Basically so you don’t have to remember how to split filepaths in tcl and can easily display the image name.

Full Credit goes to Ben McEwan and his very detailed blog post about powering up your contact sheets.

The python script to change your knob defaults on the normal contactSheet node in your menu.py file is already here, posted by Ben:

This one is just for people who want to download the expressioned node and add it to their toolsets and not mess with any menu.py files.

I show this tool in a video explaining my LabelFromRead node, and I didn’t see a downloadable gizmo version on nukepedia, so figured I’d post it.


I made a brief demo of the LabelFromRead tool, along with how I use it with an automatic contactSheet node to review or compare multiple shots in a sequence.
