What is a NODES file?
A NODES file is a stickfigure, prop, weapon, or other item created by Stick Nodes, a 2D animation program. In Stick Nodes' documentation, all NODES files are referred to as stickfigures, even those that contain props, weapons, or other items. Both Stick Nodes and Stick Nodes Pro use NODES files.
Stick Nodes and Stick Nodes Pro are stickfigure animation programs available for Android and iOS devices. Stick Nodes is a free program, while Stick Nodes Pro is a paid program that includes additional features.
After animators create a stickfigure or another item that can be animated in Stick Nodes, they can save that item as a NODES file. The animator can then reuse the NODES file in future animations or share the file with other Stick Nodes users, so those users can include the item in their animations. Many NODES files are available for download from Stick Nodes' official website.

A NODES file may also be a project file created by AudioNodes, a music creation program. It is used to load a project and its included audio files in AudioNodes. NODES files are renamed .ZIP archives that contain the audio files imported into a project and a JSON file that specifies the project's structure and settings.
AudioNodes is a node-based music-making program that allows you to import, create, and edit audio and then export your edited audio as a song. The program is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, as well as online.
If you want to save an AudioNodes project, so you can continue editing it in the future, you can do so by selecting the three-dots menu icon and clicking Project → Save as. Doing so saves your project as a NODES file. Each NODES file includes all the audio imported into the project, as well as a JSON file named project.nodes. Project.nodes contains plain text data that define the project's settings and edits.
How to open a NODES file
You can open a NODES file with AudioNodes (multiplatform):
- Click AudioNodes' three-dot menu.
- Select Project → Open
- Navigate to and open your NODES file.
If you want to view the audio and JSON files a NODES file contains, rename the file to use the .zip extension and open it as you would any ZIP file.
How to convert a NODES file

- Open your NODES file in AudioNodes.
- Click the three-dot menu.
