Tutorial 169: FUI with Nodebox

Joe Clay | Mar 29, 2019

In this week's After Effects tutorial, we explore Nodebox again! If you're unfamiliar with Nodebox and you missed Tutorial 167, go check it out. Last time we made an FUI-style element with random data. This week, we bring in CSV data.

I used an app on my iPhone called Sound Spectrum Analysis to make noises and capture the audio data. You can send an email with exported data using the app. It puts some extra info at the top, and adds in some extra spacing for some reason. It also separates with semicolons, which Nodebox can use if you want, but I like to keep them commas. So I simplified the CSV's header and used find and replace in a text editor to remove those lines and convert the semicolons to commas. After that, the CSV worked perfectly in Nodebox.

Anyway, Nodebox is great for generating these types of elements. Play around with it and see what you can come up with!
