Question about connecting Viewer nodes in Nuke


Hi there,

In Nuke when you press 1 you’re selected node is connected to a viewer node. But how do I control which viewer?
In a very big flow I don’t want to manually connect the viewer nodes just to get the right output in the right viewer…



You can always use multiple viewers. Pressing 1 gives you viewer 1, but you can press 2 and so forth and get a new viewer for each and toggle between.


if you have multiple viewers then you need to select your viewer (by clicking in or on its tab) first then press the numeric hotkey.

otherwise just hook up the viewer pipes manually.
