Can you have an effect be "Render Only"

Hi Community...

 

is there a way or an expression that can be applied to an effect so that it will be off while you're working, but is on when you render? For instance, I'm using the pixel blur effect, and it slows down my interactivity while I'm working, but would like it available in the renders. 

 

This is possible in any node in Nuke. And I think it has something to do with the opacity, because that's where you set the expression. It's very handy. Are there any "render only" flags in the expressions? 

 

best,

You can't do that with an expression. The easiest thing to do is to turn off the effect in the Effects Control Panel or the Timeline, then turn it back on when rendering.

Turning of an effect in AE equates disabling a node in Nuke. so there you have it. Not much more than that with the only real trick in Nuke being its render scripts and overrides, which AE does not offer.
