View Full Version : proxy scale?
June 2nd, 2006, 06:42 AM
I can't find the proxy scale (or something like this) like in Shake or Fusion.
I found only one togle - proxy/no proxy. What about 1/3, 1/4 proxy scale without editing reformat nodes and settings?

When you turn on the proxies Nuke will use whatever you set as your proxy in your read nodes. You can define or customize the proxy resolution by modifying your "formats.tcl".
You can also create a gizmo to manage the generation of proxies based on selected nodes on your DAG.
I did a gizmo that commits to disk part of my flow (resulting node) and then reads the rendered file sequence from that point on instead of processing the whole flow upstream.
I hope this helps,

proxies in shake can be set a couple ways you can do it in the upper right corner wher e it says "base" click and hold that and you have p1, p2, p3 i.e .5, .25, .1 proxies
or in the Globals you can set the useProxy to base, p1, p2, p3 ect.
this is all in the manual starting on page 197 which is a chapter on proxies

Well proxies in Nuke are a bit different from Shake or Fusion. In Nuke you don't have a toggle to render everything with half, third or quarter resolution while you still working with your high resolution plates. When you turn on proxies it just switch your high res plates for you low res plates set on the proxy file settings in your Read node or any other node like constants, color bars etc.
I hope it helps. But you should check the manuals that come with the application or get in contact with D2 support so they help you to understand the proxy pipeline.
