I’m working on a long post about baking and making good mobile 3D game graphics but I just thought I’d post a good tip for finding Nuke files in OS X. If you know you have a Nuke script file that has some filters in it but can’t remember what it’s called, do a Spotlight search and just use the filter names. Spotlight will search inside of the files since they are ASCII text and show you a result:
Use as many Boolean terms to narrow it down even further:
And the scene…
If you’re still using Shake, it also works with that too. I hope more developers will use human-readable files so users can do stuff like this to work efficiently. It also makes updating scenes with different references easier since you can just open the file in a text editor and use search/replace to point to different file references.
