Accessing smartCommand

Once installed, smartCommand can be run as floating window from the menu bar and as a docked window from the pane menu.

Running from the menu bar

To access smartCommand from Nuke’s menu bar let’s navigate to cragl -> smartCommand -> smartCommander. The shortcut is F12.


The smartCommander will be created as a floating window located under your current mouse position.

Running from pane menu

smartCommand can be accessed from your pane menu as well and will reside in a docked state. You will then be able to save your current layout so that the smartCommander stays in your layout even after relaunching Nuke. To access it, click on one of the pane menus anywhere in Nuke’s user interface and choose Window -> Custom -> smartCommander.
