    Nice quick tutorial - Learning about the using colours and shapes for nodes as well as a basic introduction to the switch node was great!

    is it just me, or is the volume on this video extremely low? I have to increase the volume a lot here, making all other sounds on my PC unbearably high. Nice video otherwise.

    S in network tab doesn't work. Use Z instead.
