How to export animated camera (and basic geometry of scene) from Blender to Nuke?

For example I want to create a ship in the ocean in Blender and to add a people to the ship , using Nuke. I definitely need to add people to the ship in Nuke, not in Blender.

How to transfer animated camera (and the scene) from Blender to Nuke ? In scene I need only basic geometry, (texture, etc. not important).


I tried to use FBX, 6.1 ascii version of the exporter (thanks to @cegaton for help), but in this case, the camera was looking in the wrong direction. In Nuke, in the camera settings I turned on "Compute rotation", then the camera began to look almost in the right direction, but still wrong.

For the test, I used a simple scene with an animated cube and animated camera. https://youtu.be/RMTmptv-Suc - VIDEO TEST (Blender and Nuke)

  • $\begingroup$ So far, the only way that I found - export from Blender to Maya, and from Maya export FBX ascii to Nuke. Many thanks to Cegaton for advise to use ascii FBX. $\endgroup$ – Rumata May 1 '15 at 17:27

Use the FBX import-export plugin. Try to export the scene as FBX 6.1 ASCII - this should work immediately. Go to File > Export > FBX.

Load it into Nuke via ReadGeo and Camera Nodes and plug both into a Scene Node. Don't forget to to enable compute rotation in the camera property panel.

    $\begingroup$ @MaximVelichkin works fine, also camera animation, don't forget to enable compute rotation in nuke's camera panel. $\endgroup$ – p2or May 1 '15 at 18:50
