In the Node view, you can connect effects and compositing nodes to form a network, also known as a node system. This view is very useful for rigging puppets, creating advanced effects and having a clear view of complex scenes. The organization and order of the nodes determines the flow of data during the compositing process and how your animation elements will be composited.
When entering symbols, the Symbol Stack lets you navigate back to the top and see the hierarchy of the symbol in which you are working.
The main area of the Node view is where you can add and organize different nodes to represent a scene.
The Navigator view lets you pan the visible area to move quickly through extensive node sets.
The Search toolbar lets you find and match a node in the project. The search is not case-sensitive. Once you have entered characters in the search field, press Enter/Return to validate and find the pattern in the node names. If successful, the node is selected and centred in the view. If many instances are found, use the Previous and Next buttons to cycle through each node.
When entering a group, the Group Navigation allows you to navigate back to the top and see the hierarchy of the group in which you are.
