This is a simple Python script to submit your Nuke project to a Smedge controlled render farm from directly inside of the Nuke interface. It will create a little interface to allow you to specify some of the details of the job, including the frame range, the write nodes to render, the priority and the packet size.
To install the script, you will need to modify the path to the Smedge Submit.exe component application, near the top of the script file. For example, on Windows, the path may be something like "C:\Program Files\Smedge\Submit.exe". You can run the script manually, or you can modify your menu.py file to include something like the following to get it integrated into the Nuke interface menus:
If there is enough interest, I will continue to expand this script to add more features, like those available in the Maya submit script (like being able to download the Pools from the Master, etc.). Please let me know if you have any questions or run into any issues.
