If you open the Palette you can drag examples into your network.

Also if you go to Help menu -> OP Snippets there are "in-network" examples of many nodes (not all) that give you an idea of how to use them in some context. Can also just drag and drop them into your projects and expand from there.

I have a regular Sphere polygon object, I selected a Group node and selecting primitives by Expression. How to select random polygons withing sphere's points? Basically, I want to randomly select some polygons, around 20-30% of the entire number.
Can't find a way to do it yet. :roll:

I think that you should include snippets for all OPs!!!
At least for those whose use is not immediate, e.g.
Bone Group, Clay, Curve Clay, Deform, Capture, Capture Region....

Thanks, we continue to work on them all the time and keep adding them as we go. OP Snippets is only a couple of years old and the list is long!

Thanks for the feedback.

Hi, I am beginner and I have read the pdf of Elburz and I watched video tutorials of Norway Workshop, Lynda and some others from nVoid site but I am still confused with this software, I don't know how to use the the containers, parameters and operators. I know the basic things like using the hotkeys, Anatomy of the software and.... but I am still searching the basic script that explains me how I can use it. pls somebody help me :(

Here is an introduction to the parts of TouchDesigner over 3 hours, it puts together rendering setups and explains what they different operators do to get you started.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmM1lCWtn6o

Then you can also dig into the other workshop videos here: https://www.youtube.com/touchdesignerofficial

But perhaps workshops aren't your style of learning, in which case please ask what you are trying to build or more specifically what you are stuck with. Have you tried the Facebook Help group or asking specifics on the forum here?

Also, please look under the Help Menu at OP Snippets, they show small examples of how to use many of the operators. The exampels you can copy into your own projects or use as a starting point to learn more about the operators.
