Reset Element floating button trick

A lot of people want the Reset Element button more “front and centre” in the UI.

Just thought I would share what i do using Nuke 11.2

  • I create a standard Noop node in Nuke

  • Activate User knob editing

  • Ctrl+click on the Noop node, tthis pops out the properties for the Noop node into a floating window, then select and drag the Reset Element button over to the floating Noop window.

  • Then i just position it at the top of the screen, and make the floating window tiny, like this.

  • Done

For bonus points, I’ve also made a spinCloud slider that links to the rotate Y of an E_TransformField node. Quick way to spin around my cloud sim while working on it!
