Installation

Warning:  If you have any previous versions of the Nuke<>Mari Bridge scripts installed, please remove them first.

To install the Nuke<>Mari Bridge, follow these steps:

On Linux

1.   Navigate to the Media/Scripts/Nuke sub-directory of the Mari application directory on your computer.
2.   Copy the contents of this folder to the /home/login name/.nuke directory.

On Windows

1.   Navigate to the Bundle\Media\Scripts\Nuke sub-directory of the Mari application directory on your computer.
2.   Copy the contents of this folder to the \Users\login name\.nuke directory.

On Mac OS X

1.   Navigate to the Media/Scripts/Nuke sub-directory of the Mari application directory on your computer.
2.   Copy the contents of this folder to the /Users/login name/.nuke directory.

 

Note:  If the .nuke folder already contains a file called menu.py, please open this file and paste the text from the menu.py file (from the sub-directory mentioned in step 1) anywhere into this file.

Tip:  These files can be installed anywhere in your NUKE_PATH, however the .nuke folder is convenient for most users. If multiple copies of the scripts are installed in multiple folders in your NUKE_PATH, you may encounter problems. Please ensure that only one copy of each script is present.

Once this has been done, the following items appear in the Nuke UI when launched:

Note:  If you intend to launch Mari from Nuke, from the Mari > Launch Mari menu, you can set the environment variable MARI_INSTALL_PATH so that you don’t need to point to the Mari executable every time. For example, MARI_INSTALL_PATH=/usr/local/Mari<version>/mar
