Node List

This window contains a list of all the nodes available in Notch. You can go through the dropdown list of grouped nodes, or use the search bar to find specific nodes.

Profiler

This window helps identify where performance is being impacted the most. With enabled selected, Notch will keep track of how long each node takes to calculate and for nodes where this is significant, it is written underneath their name in the Viewport. You can read more on increasing performance on the Managing Performance In Media Servers page.

Exposed Properties

This window shows all the properties that will be exposed to other applications from Notch, once the project is compiled. If you have multiple layers each with lots of exposed properties, you can solo to show only one layer’s exposed properties by right-clicking and selecting “Show Only Selected Layers”.
