Text Values in Nuke for Wedge Renders

This is more a reminder for myself, as I can never remember the syntax for outputting values to Text nodes in Nuke.

Strength [format %0.2f [value strength]]

Often use this when doing wedge renders during lookdev. A wedge render is a render where you render several frames of the same thing but only change a few specific values to see what effect the change has.


A few things to note…

  • In this case the “strength” attribute to look up comes from a custom user knob on the same knob.
  • The format %0.2f statement is used to format the value. See the printf reference for more details.
