View is clear?

I've only been playing with 5 minutes, so I may be missing something, but my viewport (left) keeps clearing itself. If I clear all nodes and make a new ellipse it'll show, but as soon as I add a frame (as in the animation tutorial) it's clear.

On a Mac, using V3, Mountain Lion 10.8.2.

    NodeBox only shows the output of the rendered node in the viewer. There can only be one rendered node in your network.

    The rendered node is indicated by a small triangle. In the screenshot, the ellipse is the rendered node:


    If you want to see multiple things at once, combine their outputs using the combine node.

    The getting started page has more information on this. For more details, read "how NodeBox works".

    Hope this helps,
