The Notch User Interface is broken into several main sections:

  • Resource Window, Where all the media files can be imported for use in Notch.
  • Properties Window, Where attributes of nodes can be changed or altered for different variations on an effect.
  • Viewport, Where the scene is assembled and results are shown.
  • Nodegraph Window, Where the nodes are combined to create the effect.
  • Timeline, For editing together multiple effects in the same project.
  • Curve Editor, For editing animation keys and interpolation.

Other Windows can be opened through the View menu Item, or the Window Controls Bar.
