[SOLVED] Shortcut to Toggle to Main Output/Favorite Node?

PostMon Jul 27, 2020 10:10 am

Hi,

Is there a way to toggle the main output/favorite node?

For instance, if my main output is at the bottom of the node tree
Then I have to view a particular node at the bottom. I have to scroll up.
If I have to view main output again, I have to scroll down.

As you might see, its a bit cumbersome.

I was wondering if there is a feature to toggle with main output/favorite node. So I don't have to keep scrolling up/down.


P.S. I use the other viewers for scopes. So I only use one viewer at a given time.

There is no such thing. You can create a wireless node next to the favorite node and connect that to your main output. There is also a flow bookmark script available inside of Reactor that might be of help to you. Do you have reactor installed?

Hi Sander,

Thanks for the response.
I tried the Bookmarker script, as you suggested.
It does jump the bookmarked node, but it does not necessarily put it in the viewer. So I'd have to press 1 again.

Also, the bookmarker script, for some reason, it does not cycles automatically.

1) Press Shift + J
2) The Dialog Opens
3) Click Jump Back.

It would be nice if steps 2/3 be deleted. Just press Shift+J then it goes to the node.

Try this:

It allows you to add user defined hotkeys to target viewers by node Name. You may need a basic understanding of scripting though. I can walk you through it if you need help.

Hi Kel,

Thanks for the response.
With the link you referred, I was able to comp a working script in Python

Code: Select all
tool = comp.FindTool('Loader1')
preview = comp.CurrentFrame
preview.ViewOn(tool, 1)
