TOUCHDESIGNER WORKSHOP SYNOPSIS

Join the Derivative team and special guests this August for an exciting edition of MUTEK's TouchDesigner workshop. As always for anyone interested in mastering the fundamentals and attaining a working knowledge of TouchDesigner quickly this is the time and place.

This workshop will have a focus on audio visualization techniques in TouchDesigner taking its cue from MUTEK's long tradition of attracting innovative artists who make visuals for music.

TouchDesigner is a real-time visual development platform that can be used for creating interactive media systems, immersive/projection mapping environments, music visuals, building custom applications and UIs and for the rapid-prototyping of creative impulses.

While workshop registration is limited to 24 active participants there will be ample space for observers to drop in and follow along with the workshop. Reserve your spot now to avoid disappointment.

Following the workshop on Wednesday we invite the community gathered in Montreal to join us for a 'happy hour' from 5pm - 7pm to meet up and perhaps check out a few demos and presentations.

PARTICIPANT REQUIREMENTS & INFORMATION

Equipment that participants need to bring along: Laptop Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and up or Apple macOS 10.11 and up. While we do support Integrated Intel Graphics (HD4000 and up) we do recommend a discreet GPU of the NVIDIA GeForce 600 or AMD HD 7000 Series and up. Make sure all drivers are up to date. You will also need a 3-button (or 2 button with clickable scroll wheel). See System Requirements on the Derivative wiki.

Prepare Your Laptop
Please install the latest build of TouchDesigner 099 available here.

If you haven't updated your graphics drivers in a long time, it would be a good idea to check for new ones at Nvidia.com or AMD.com.

Open TouchDesigner to make sure everything is working. If this is the first time running TouchDesigner on this laptop it will ask you to create a key. You will need to be a member at www.derivative.ca to create a key, you can register here.

Prepare Yourself: Watch/Study These Tutorials
To get the full value of this workshop we recommend familiarizing yourself with TouchDesigner by watching (ideally working along with) these video tutorials:

On the Derivative wiki: "First Things to Know About TouchDesigner" Part 1 and Part 2

And for the keeners we recommend Matthew Ragan's Yale Workshop
