Sending and Receiving OSC Values with TouchDesigner

Postby raganmd » Sun Dec 22, 2013 6:22 pm

I'm finally catching up on some of the documentation that I've been meaning to do as I've been learning TouchDesigner, and I wanted to share some of the approaches that I've used. If you're looking to learn how to send data back to TouchOSC from TD this how-to is for you.

Would be nice if we had a tutorial section where you could put things like this. Good work!

Thanks elburz. I agree - I never feel like I'm putting these things in the right place.

Nice one>

I have made a component to do this to a bunch of channels at once. I don't have the hard drive with me at the minute, but will try and post it up in the next day or so.

Bascially, you pass in the CHOP containing all the channels you want to remap/rename, and a table DAT with inputName, outputName, outputMin, outputMax columns. It then uses the replicator to do what you describe here for each incoming channel.

Hi!

I use OSC to control my project, but i have some problem with it.
I have two control panel (one is on the phone and another on the computer) for one visual project.
I would like to see the changing paramter(from the phone) on the computer control panel and also inversely. So i have two input panel for the same parameter and i want to use it like one in the same time. I tried a lot of different thing but it always make a feedback effect.
Is there any soultion to avoid this?

Hey losix,

can you share a tow file of the network that you've made? It will be easier to answer your question if I can see what you've made so far.

Hi losix -
Totally missed this reply here from November!
Here's a poorly shot video that I think is doing what you're after, as well as the changes I made to your network to make it work.

[EDIT]

I did a fuller write-up about the approach I used, and how to apply this same idea to a larger control set-up. Hope this helps.
