Professor Hugo Léveillé begins the course by examining the most useful widgets of PySide with their most useful functions. Then, you’ll see how to add interactions between these widgets using PySide's signals / slots and events. We'll also go over the style sheets of PySide to give our panels a personalized look.
We'll also be incorporating our newly learned code into Nuke to create useful tools you can use on the job.
Coming from a Shake background, Hugo has now been using Nuke on various feature films, TV shows and videoclips. Still doing daily compositing, he is working as a compositing technical director in Montreal, Canada, creating and integrating pipeline tools for Nuke.
Class 1Introduction and installation. A first look at what PySide is and how it is more powerful than the regular Nuke python panel. Since there is a lot to install, we'll take the time to see how to install everything correctly.
Class 2Widgets and layouts. An overview of the most useful widgets and their functions. We also see how we can layout them in our panel.
Class 3Item based widgets and container widgets. We explore more complex widgets like the QListWidget and QTableWidget.
Class 4Signals, slots and events. We now connect all those widgets together so we can create very dynamic UIs.
Class 5Style sheets. How to use PySide's style sheets system to give a very specific look to our widgets. We will go over colours, shapes and sizes.
Class 6Clipboard app, Part 1. We'll make our first Nuke application in PySide. In this first part, we will be designing the UI of the panel. We will also take a look at MongoDB, which is the database system we'll be using for this app.
Class 7Clipboard app Part 2. We finish the connections of all the functions and widgets.
Class 8QPaintEvent. A first look at the painter of PySide so we can draw various shapes to create very unique UIs.
Class 9The Hotbox. Taking what we've learned so far, we create a Nuke version of Maya's hotbox.
Class 10QT Designer. A look at QT Designer to design our panels with a simple drag and drop. Then we will see how we can convert those files to python.
