Here is a very quick tip on how to set your threads in Nuke.

Hit enter and you'll see this:

How ever many cores your system has, double that and that is the max threads you should enter.  I've read that if you have a 12-core system you shouldn't set the max threads to 24. Some people say it actually slows Nuke down.

Nuke relink

I have seen a few gizmos that relink your read nodes in nuke. I prefer to use a StickyNote, that way I don't have to rely on anything being installed if I switch to a new computer. 

Create a StickyNote and in the name field type filepath . In the label field type your file path to your project mine is: volumes/SSD_Video/FISK/FruitvaleMy computer is a mac so I have volumes/. If you have a windows machine this could be D:

As a work flow I usually create a couple of StickyNotes and copy and paste the text from one to the main StickyNote.  So I have my home computer which the label is work/work/ and I have my work computer /SSD_video/FiskWhen Im at home I paste the work/work/  in the main StickyNote and vise versa when I go to work I paste /SSD_video/Fisk.


Now all you need to do is and some text into each read node you bring in. 


In the read node add [knob filepath.label].  This path is a continuation from the StickyNote so really your path is split in half. First half on the StickyNote then the read node picks up the other half. So [knob filepath.label]   is taking the place of volumes/SSD_Video/FISK/Fruitvale and files it in from the StickyNote.
