A channel is a sequence of numbers (also known as Samples) that can represent motion, control signals, MIDI, audio, color maps, rolloff curves or lookup tables. Channels can be Exported to Parameters.

A CHOP generated and outputs one or more channels. The group of one or more channels created by a CHOP is called a Clip. A clip is what a CHOP outputs.

Each channel of a CHOP has a channel name that can be set by the user.

Channels are passed between CHOPs in TouchDesigner networks.

A channel can also be Exported to a Parameter of any operator, overriding that parameter's value.

Channel Namesedit

Channel names can contain numbers, English letters (A-Z a-z), and the special characters -, _, :, and /. Other characters will be automatically converted to _.

Common practice is to use only lower-case letters for channel names and _.
