TouchDesigner InSession


We are excited to announce TouchDesigner InSession, a streamed event where up to 3 community members can review their projects with Derivative’s staff to address questions, problems and optimization challenges. The idea is of course to help people with their work but it is also intended to be instructive for the rest of the community watching the stream and learning best-practices from TouchDesigner developers.

Join us Friday June 25th for the 19th episode of InSession when we are very pleased to welcome Sahar Homami an audiovisual artist/programmer, calligrapher and researcher from Tehran, based in Berlin and Montréal.

Sahar is currently doing RnD for a project involving text-based data visualization and together we will be doing a deep dive into the exciting new possibilities of working with text brought about with the new rendering architecture, the text COMP and other new features from TouchDesigner's 2022 Official Update

Please note the new time of 15:00 EST

Check out the recordings of InSession (above) and read on to learn more and how to participate.

How It Works

TouchDesigner InSession will take place every three weeks. The format will be to have three consecutive participants each consult for up to 30 minutes with one or more members of our team. The event will be live-streamed and we encourage the community at large to tune in and ask their own questions in the chat. 
To apply, please fill out and submit this registration form. Before submitting please read carefully:
  • Incomplete registrations will not be considered. (“More info to come…” is not good enough.)
  • The session will be streamed online to the whole community. Make sure there is nothing secret in your project that you don’t want to reveal or you are not allowed to share.
  • We will use the latest Official and Experimental builds. Let us know what your project was created with.
  • Make sure your linked project or .tox file runs out of the box. For example be sure that any paths are relative to your project file.
  • If at all possible, break out issues with your project into smaller examples.
  • We encourage you to use TouchDesigner’s sample assets where possible.
  • Please be considerate of download sizes. A GB per project is too big.
The next session is scheduled for:
Friday, June 25th at 15:00 EST.

We look forward to receiving your submissions and getting TouchDesigner InSession online and direct to the community! See you soon.
