Description

** NOTE THIS IS A 6 HOUR WORKSHOP WITH A ONE HOUR LUNCH **

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

TouchDesigner is a graphical programming environment designed for generating real-time visuals and interactive work and can be quite the beast with it’s wide range of uses! This full day workshop will focus on the elements required to get started with TouchDesigner as a tool for interactive installations: besides video playback and image based effects, topics will include generative 2D/3D and rendering, interfacing with external input and output devices as well as investigating various protocols to allow control of an installation. The workshop will start with a overview of Interface workflow and basic concepts behind the node based development environment and then provide context by giving step by step instructions to build example networks that could be adapted to interactive installations.
