In this video, the instructor selects a few nodes from the node library, discusses the anatomy of a node, and covers the picks and clicks required to connect and disconnect one node's output to another node's input.
- [Instructor] Now, we're ready to start placing nodes…onto our workspace and connecting them together.…Each node in the Library has one job,…it takes one or more inputs,…performs a very specific function…or process with those inputs,…and then it spits out an output on the other end.…To show you what I mean, I'll start off…in the Math Operators section of the Node Library,…which has several nodes that are used…for mathematical operations.…You can see here we have nodes for addition,…subtraction, multiplication and division,…and a few other nodes that we'll take a look at…in future videos.…
I'll begin by clicking on the Addition Node,…which we'll use to add two numbers together.…This will drop one Addition Node onto our workspace.…The light gray boxes you see on the node…with the text inside them…are inputs and outputs.…These are the ports that you'll use…to connect nodes together with wires.…Inputs are always located on the left side of the node,…and outputs are always going to be on the right.…The Addition Node, for example,…
