Alpha version Description The program window has 5 work areas:
- the project area
- the preview area
- the graph editing area
- the new node type selection area
- the node properties/settings area
The program starts up with a standard project already open which contains two graphs.
Select "graph1" under the Graphs entry in the project area.
Choose a node type in the new node type selection at the upper right and double-click on the name of a node type. A new node will be created and is already set as primary selection.
As soon as a node is selected, its output image will be rendered and displayed in the upper center area.
You can drag and drop the node in the graph editing area to move it to a new position.
You can create a second node in the same manner.
To work with the nodes you have to make a selection first. The program has two types of node selection: a primary selection which is always one node and a secondary selection which can consist of more than one node. To change the primary selection just click on a node and its color will be changed. To add a node to the secondary selection just hold the SHIFT key while clicking on another node. The node will be added to the secondary selection and the color will be changed to another one.
To connect two nodes, move the mouse cursor to an output on a node (outputs are on the right edge of each while inputs are on the left). It will change to a cross. Now press and hold the left mouse button and move the mouse cursor to an input of another node. If the types of the output and the input match (the types are also color coded, see below) the mouse cursor will stay a cross. If they don't match, it changes to a stop sign. If they match, release the mouse button and a connection will be made.
You can also connect the nodes by using the toolbar at the top of the node editing area. To connect two nodes, make the node whose output you want to connect the primary selection and the node with an input you want to connect the secondary selection. Now click on the "Connect nodes" toolbar button. If the two nodes can be connected, the first matching output-input pair will be connected.
For a faster workflow most functions are available to be controlled by the keyboard.
You can add a new node by pressing Shift+N. A popup menu will be shown with the list of node types.
You can navigate in this list with the UP and DOWN cursor keys on the keyboard.
Select an entry and press the RETURN key to create a node of the selected type.
The list is split into pages. The first and last entries (<<< and >>>) allow you to go to the previous or next page, respectively. Select one of these entries with the UP or DOWN key and the press the RETURN key to get to the next or previous page.
You can also just type some letters and the list will be filtered accordingly.
To correct your input for the filtering, press the BACKSPACE key to remove the last entered letter for the filter.
To connect two nodes, make the node whose output you want to connect the primary selection and the node with an input you want to connect the secondary selection. Now press Shift+C on your keyboard. If the two nodes can be connected, the first matching output-input pair will be connected.
